Devastated Family Forced To Surrender Dog Due To Inability To Pay Medical Bills

According to ilovemydogsomuch, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay is dedicated to giving animals a second chance at life, which includes assisting their owners.

When a bereaved family was forced to give up their dog due to unpaid medical bills, the shelter employees decided to do something special just in time for Christmas.

Joy the dog had broken her leg, and her owners were unable to pay her medical bills.
As a result, they were forced to make the difficult decision to surrender Joy to the shelter.
In the spirit of Christmas, the humane society operated on Joy’s leg.

“After analyzing Joy’s x-ray, we discovered that the bone had been crushed beyond repair.”
Amputation was Joy’s only option.
“In the spirit of Christmas,” the humane society said on Facebook, “we amputated Joy’s leg today and invited Joy’s family to come and pick her up free of charge.”

The family couldn’t believe what they were hearing and burst out laughing.

The family was pleased, and the shelter staff felt good about making someone’s Christmas brighter.
Pets are considered family members, so we can only imagine how relieved Joy’s family is to have her back.
In the spirit of giving, I Love My Dog encourages our readers who are interested in adopting a dog to contact their local shelters or pet rescue organizations.

Millions of wonderful pets are only a mouse click away from finding their forever homes.
