MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County Humane Society is asking for the community's help in getting a young Labrador Retriever mix, named Spike, a needed surgery operation.
When the three-year-old arrived to DCHS in July, the medical staff determined that Spike had a complete tear of the cranial cruciate ligament (CCL or "ACL") in his knee and needed corrective surgery.
Spike had a successful surgery. However, Spike injured his other knee while recovering in a foster home and now needs to have corrective surgery on that knee.
DCHS is hoping to raise the $1,500 needed for spike to have the additional surgery he needs.
If you would like to make a donation, select "Donate to: Help Me Heal" when donating online. Please state "Spike Knee Surgery" in the comment section of the online donation form.
Your contribution of $10 or more between noon on Monday thru noon on Tuesday will enter you into a drawing to win a pair of tickets to the upcoming University of Wisconsin Badgers football home game on Saturday at 11:00 a.m.
If DCHS raises more than the $1,500 needed for Spike's surgery, the additional funds will be used to help treat special needs animals recovering from medical illnesses and injuries at the shelter.
