A Female Labrador Retriever presently Not Yet Available

Kayla had a nice home with a family who loved her except due to circumstances brought on by these uncertain times, her family had to make the sad decision to find her a new home.  Kayla has been graced with the striking appearance and the wonderful personality that comes with being a Labrador Retriever -- but, great dog, bad knees!  Kayla will require TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) surgery on both knees to repair torn cranial cruciate ligaments.  As you will notice, Kayla is a little chunky and for the time being she is with one of our amazing Foster Moms who is working hard to help her lose some weight before the surgery.  The excess weight combined with an injury is probably the cause of the tears.  Obesity can slow recuperation times and we want to give her the best chance at a full and speedy recovery    She may have the habit of looking at people with those big brown eyes that say, “Can I please have a treat?”  You need to think very carefully.  Rather than giving her a cookie, offer her some of your undivided attention and affection.  Take her for a walk in the neighbourhood; she would be so happy to spend time with you that she won’t miss the treats.  Animatch must know that you are going to do everything possible to help her continue to lose weight and most importantly maintain it.  So, Kayla is counting on you to help by feeding healthy food in the proper quantities and sustaining a daily exercise regimen.  At less than two years old, she is an is an expert on love, loyalty, and companionship.  The only thing that would make life just a little better for him at this point is a forever family!  Animatch will keep you updated on Kayla’s surgery.  

The cost of Kayla’s surgery will be approximately $4,000 per knee.   Animatch’s primary source of funding for extra veterinary care is found through fund raisers and your generous donations.   Because of the current situation, all fund-raising events have been cancelled so we can only appeal to our supporters.  We are so appreciative that you always get involved – and Kayla is too!  All donations – large and small – are greatly appreciated.
