Gentle Kane needs your help to walk without pain

February 28, 2019

The BC SPCA’s Vancouver Branch is asking for your help with the costs of surgery for sweet Kane, who has torn cruciate ligaments in his back legs and needs TPLO surgery on both.

“This is causing him tremendous pain when walking, trying to lie down or climb stairs,” says Jodi Dunlop, branch manager at the Vancouver SPCA.

Kane’s owner surrendered him to the SPCA and the dog’s double surgery comes with a hefty price tag of about $10,260 but is necessary to give the animal a chance at a normal life. “Kane is a big loving couch potato with an amazing gentle personality. We already have several people interested in adopting this guy,” says Dunlop.

After his surgery Kane will spend eight to 12 weeks recovering in a foster home before he’s ready to be adopted into a loving home.

If you can help save Kane and other animals in need at the Vancouver SPCA, please visit or visit the branch at 1205 East 7th Avenue, Vancouver, 604-879-7721.
