Meet Lacie. She is an adorable two and a half year old Shih tzu. Lacie exuberantly ran into the street to greet a family member and was struck by a fast-moving truck. After rushing her to an overnight emergency hospital, her mom was referred to BirchBark Foundation and she transported Lacie the next day to our associate member hospital, Pacific Veterinary Specialists. It was determined that Lacie had sustained several pelvic fractures and would need extensive surgery. Lacie’s mom and dad are both workers in Castroville and did not have the income to get Lacie the necessary surgery to save her the use of her legs and perhaps her life. BirchBark and Pacific Veterinary worked together with Dr. Tom LaHue to get her the surgery she needed on both her right and left side. She’s now home and recuperating with her loving family.
