Injured dogs need your help

The BC SPCA’s Comox Valley & District Branch is urgently looking for help for two new furry friends.

The local SPCA recently received a little seven-month-old Pomeranian that needed major surgery.

The next day, Roy went in for surgery to have his right front leg removed, as it was broken and could not be fixed. He is recovering in foster care, where he is receiving all the attention a puppy could ever want!

Four days later, we received another Pomeranian that required surgery to repair his right hind leg. Ozzy is 10 months old and cute as a button.

He urgently needs your help. If left without surgery, Ozzy’s knee will continue to pop in and out of place and soon he will suffer from crippling arthritis. He is under vet care and gets lots of love while he awaits surgery.

The SPCA Comox Valley & District Branch would be grateful for any donations to help cover the cost of surgery for these two special animals. If you can help, call 250-339-7722 or drop by the shelter located at 1668 Ryan Road East in Comox.
