Campaign Details

Please donate to Fabia's knee surgery.  


A long time ago, somebody let Fabia down. 

A bad person hit her so hard it knocked her hip out of socket, and messed up her knee.  Then, they abandoned her at a high kill shelter in Alabama.  Luckily, Almost Home rescued Fabia.  Now she's living with a great foster family where she can snuggle, learn new tricks (her favorite!) and give sloppy wet kisses.

Fabia is a beautiful teeny tiny 2-3 year old rat terrier with her whole life ahead of her.  She has already had an FHO hip surgery to correct the brute force injury someone inflicted upon her, and has recovered very well. (She was all smiles, and the surgeon was shocked that she used her leg almost immediately post-surgery, which is a testament to the amount of pain she was enduring pre-operation). 

However, she still needs one final surgery to correct her knee, which prevents her from putting a lot of weight on her leg, and making full use of it.  Please help give Fabia a chance to run and play without pain and be adopted fur-ever.  

Donate today.  

Almost Home cannot do this alone, and relies on your donation to help dogs like Fabia recover from their past.

Proceeds will go directly to Almost Home Foundation for Fabia's surgery.  Any additional funds over and above what's needed for Fabia's surgery will go toward the care of other dogs in Almost Home's care. (They have taken on several expensive medical cases recently).

Almost Home Foundation is a registered, not-for-profit 501c3 charitable organization dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned cats and dogs since 2005 in the northwest Chicago suburbs.  There are no paid members.
