Each month we donate to animal shelters nominated by you. For the month of May, we heard about a dog and owner who needed some extra help and we decided to include them as one of our 10 donation recipients. While they are not a shelter, we couldn’t pass them up after hearing what happened!
Bandit is a 6yr old Husky that lives with his owner Sam in Arizona. They enjoy making relatable pet owner content on social media for their followers on Instagram and Tik-Tok (@bandit.thehusky). Like many other Huskies, Bandit lives a very active lifestyle full of hiking outdoors and taking road trips to beautiful places in Arizona.
Bandit recently tore his ACL and the doctors believe that the tear is too much to heal on its own. The best thing for Bandit to be back to 100% (and pain-free) is to undergo TPLO surgery. Ever since the injury, he has not been himself and is forced to stay in one room with minimal movement. Sam wants the two of them to continue sharing smiles and Bandit’s story which is why they are asking for your help.
So far, they have done one TPLO surgery and are waiting to do the second one. They’ve already spent over $1000 for emergency doctor visits, medication, and consultation. The TPLO surgery is a more serious operation and can cost up to $6000 which doesn’t include costs for physical therapy after the surgery. The bills are adding up fast and they are asking for your help if you are able to! Sam has created a GoFundMe fundraiser to allow people to easily donate and keep track of the progress. Even a small donation can go a long way!
Sam and Bandit really appreciate your support during this difficult time for them! We all want to see Bandit back to his normal happy self and creating content that we all enjoy.
