Chloe is an exuberant, lively, healthy 4-year old golden retriever-lab mix. Her exuberance was halted when she fell off a cliff. While out on a hike with her owners, Chloe misjudged her path and fell 20-feet onto boulders and concrete. Both of Chloe’s front legs were severely injured in the fall. Without costly surgery, she would never regain full use of her legs and may have needed to be euthanized.
Chloe's family was unable to cover the cost of surgery for her. BirchBark Foundation provided a grant for Chloe and her family, along with discounted care from Chloe’s associate member veterinarian. BirchBark Foundation helped save Chloe the use of her legs and her family a potentially painful decicision.
