Biscuit, a young Maltese-mix pup, was found as a stray and brought to San Francisco Animal Care & Control. She had trouble walking and ACC’s veterinarian discovered that both back legs had fractures that were healing incorrectly. Yet Biscuit’s sweet nature showed that she trusted people and had a lot of love and life to share. Dr. Sean Wells, of Nor. Cal. Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Hospital (and a partner of ACC) offered to perform a substantially discounted surgery, funded by Friends of SFACC to repair both legs so that Biscuit can walk normally again. She recovered quickly and was soon playing with the cat and dog in her foster home and eventually adopted.
Twiggy, a Chihuahua pup, came to ACC with a fragile leg that had been broken twice. Friends paid for surgery to implant some hardware into her leg to allow it to heal properly and to prevent future fractures. She is now recuperating nicely and looking forward to her new “forever” home.
