Drover's Story

Hi, my name is Drover, and unfortunately I was hit by a car in Warren county Ohio.  I was taken to the Humane Association but was in need of urgent care so I was immediately transferred to an animal hospital. After I had x-rays, was given fluids and pain meds, the Doctor told me I had a dislocated hip and a rotated fracture of my ankle. Both of my back legs were hurt too, so I could barely walk and definitely needed surgery.  

The Director of the WCHA knew that they could not afford my care, so she called New Spirit 4 Aussie representative, Charlene Stocker, who immediately called the NS4AR President. The estimate for my care was around $2000, and NS4AR came through with the desperately needed funds. Thank you New Spirit 4 Aussie Rescue!  What a lucky dog!!!
Well, I had my surgeries a few days later and then spent a week in the hospital recuperating from the hip operation and a pin in my leg with 13 screws. I was able to go to the NS4AR representative's house for foster care. It was early February, and I had to wear a bag on my surgery foot when I went outside, but I didn't mind at all.  

When I went back to the hospital to have all my staples removed, I also went back to the shelter to say hi to everyone and get my shots and microchip.  Unfortunately, my blood test revealed I was Heartworm Positive. All the humans were commenting that I could not catch a break. But I feel I was lucky, because without the accident I would have died of heart worm disease. I had to take a lot of pills and get a couple of shots, but I feel good as new now!  
 I just went to live with my adoptive mom who is a teacher, and is going to get me certified as a therapy dog so I can give back to all the nice humans who have helped me along the way. Since my salary for the job will not cover my expenses, I am hoping some of you can help me out by donating a little bit to New Spirit 4 Aussie Rescue so that they can help other Aussies in need. They came through for me, and I really appreciate it more than I can say. I am a survivor because of New Spirit 4 Aussie Rescue, and I will spread the good news everywhere I can. 

 Thanks to all of you!

Sincerely,

Drover NS2917
