Please Help Gracie Mae Ratbone

Gracie Mae is an 8 to 12 month old black tri-color Rat Terrier.
She is originally from South Carolina.

Her fostermom tells us that Gracie is very sweet and affectionate - eventhough she was probably hit by a car and left for dead. Byt he time a good samaritan found her and got her tot he shelter Gracie was almost starved to death, as well as severely injured. The kind folks at the shelter nursed Gracie Mae until she was ablet o eat and drink on her own and Ratbone could pick her up.

Gracie traveled to North Carolina to have surgery and recover. Here she is just before her surgery.

Here is Gracie after surgery., Ouchie! That's a "Kirschner external apparatus", a metal appliance that she will wear until her bones have "knit". Gracie will require another surgery to remove the hardware.

The cost of Gracie's medical and surgical care so far is $1,000To watch Gracie Mae's progess, use this link.
