Ruby is a transfer from Kingston Road Animal Hospital. She was brought into the clinic by a neighbour after she was hit by a car because her owner couldn't be bothered. No surprise that when the clinic phoned her owner with an estimate, the owner balked and disowned her. The clnic then phoned TAS-South. Ruby was suffering from a shattered femur and a punctured lung. The surgery would cost thousands and now she belonged to no one. TAS-S offered to cover some of the costs - if the clinic would cover the rest - and to find her a home afterward.
Here she is now, weeks later, still in recovery but walking better and breathing again. It'll be a while yet before she's fully recovered and put up for adoption. Lucky will be the family who ends up getting her.
For adoption information on this dog and other dogs (and cats and other animals), please visit Toronto Animal Services.
