The BC SPCA is hoping you can help Bentley. The three-year-old pit bull was hit by a car and recently taken to the BC SPCA Abbotsford location by the SPCA’s Drives for Lives transfer program to receive urgent treatment and surgery.
As a result of the accident, Bentley’s pelvis was broken and one of his hips was severely damaged. He was immediately administered pain medication. The young dog requires a femoral head excision surgery, which will restore mobility in his hip allowing him to walk functionally and pain-free. He might also require surgery to repair his pelvis fracture.
Post-surgery Bentley will be on a careful recovery plan that will require additional physiotherapy on an underwater treadmill to help strengthen and heal his muscles. The total cost of his care is estimated to be $2,700.
Two amazing supporters, Eileen and Anna, heard about Bentley’s terrible situation and have generously offered to match donations up to $25,000 toward Bentley’s care and the care of other animals who are in need of medical help. That means donations to any BC SPCA medical emergency will be doubled.
Despite all he’s been through, BC SPCA Abbotsford manager Sarah Ringer-Vennard says Bentley is “amazing.”
“He is so playful and affectionate. He spends his days at the reception desk with staff greeting each and every visitor who comes with a full-body wiggle.”
