Milo, the Shih Tzu that was surrendered to HSLM with a fractured elbow joint last week, is scheduled to undergo amputation surgery today.
It is an unfortunate reality that most pets surrendered to HSLM are in need of medical attention; whether it be updated vaccinations, medications, spay/neuter or more serious procedures - like Milo.
As you can imagine, the costs incurred by HSLM for veterinary care is substantial. The average cost for each surrendered pet is $650. With special cases like Milo, the financial need is much higher.
