Help support medical care for animals like the Hobble Twins!
Your little heart was broken. Your heart was broken and your legs were awkward and your brain wasn’t fully aware. We welcomed you into our home assuming you weren’t going to survive the night. We only knew each other for a few short weeks. The veterinarians couldn’t save your weak, broken heart, and you died in the hospital.
Your little heart is broken. Your legs are a bit awkward and you’re kind of a moody teenager but we love you anyway. You will forever have a home with us, however long that may be.
Oliver and Felicity became the “Hobble Twins” when they came to the shelter with splayed legs. The splayed legs could be related to “swimmer puppy syndrome” in rabbits. The MSPCA shipped them off to Angell Memorial in Boston to get an assessment. The veterinarian at Angell put them in some hobbles and prescribed pain meds and sent them back to foster with us. Every few weeks they went back to Boston to get their legs taped closer, and every time they came home a little bit stronger than before. One day we got news that Oliver had passed away in the hospital. The veterinarians realized he had a heart condition when it was too late. Felicity also has a heart condition, but she has always been a little stronger than Oliver. We adopted Felicity shortly after that. She is now able to walk on her own and is living out her duration of life in our home with her big brother Indy.
The MSPCA was able to treat animals like Oliver and Felicity through donations. The Angels for Animals fund covers the cost of medical care for all animals that require treatment at the MSPCA (even the small animals, not just dogs and cats). Even the smallest donation can go a long way! If you are unable to donate, you can still help by fundraising or sharing my story!
