    Chihuahua with Leg Injuries - Home after surgery

    IMOM.org is fundraising for Muneca, a 5 year old Chihuahua. Muneca needs surgery on her legs. Please help get the word out to all Chihuahua lovers. And, if you're in a position, please donate.

    Her thread on IMOM is here: http://www.imom.org/community/index....opic=10307&hl=
    To make a donation http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd.
    Please include the name of the pet: Muneca Benitez

    Here is the info from IMOM's site:

    Muneca is a 5 year old Chihuahua. On the 4th of July she was frightened by fireworks and jumped from a 2nd floor window. Her forelegs did not break, but the ligaments were hyper-extended; her lower forelegs bent outward instead of back toward her body. This is a painful and debilitating condition that can be corrected with surgery.

    Muneca’s owner is working with other organizations to raise much of what’s needed for the cost of surgery. IMOM has set a goal of donating $1300 to help this little dog. Can you help us reach that goal?

    IMOM’s email address for direct Paypal donations is [email protected]. Be sure to let us know who your donation is for.

    Please help Muneca by sharing a link to this page in social media, message boards, mailing lists, etc.

    Ask your vet about microchipping. ~~ It could have saved Kuhio's life. And it cost Halo hers.

    The bake/yardsale must have been a big hit, because all funds have been raised. You can take Muneca off your worry list. Her legs are getting treated.

    Muneca had surgery and is home recovering. While it's too soon to know if she'll make a full recovery, she is lapping up love from her family.
    Thank you to all who donated or spread the word.
