This Prince George dog needs a leg amputation, and a new name

For every $5 raised you get a shot at naming the injured dog

There is a one-and-a-half-year-old dog at the Prince George Humane Society with a broken leg and no name.

The dog, a female, came to the Prince George Humane Society with a leg injury severe enough that it requires amputation.

Now the society is on a mission to fundraise enough money to cover the cost of the surgery. The injured dog is a Pyrenees and Border Collie cross, who is only around 50 lbs.

“Even with the pain of a broken leg she has been nothing but lovely for the staff at the vet,” says the Prince George Humane Society in a Facebook post.

To raise funds for her pending surgery, the Humane Society is giving the public the opportunity to name the dog.

For every $5 donated towards her care, you will get to put a name idea in the hat for what you think the dog should be called.

If you choose to donate $10 you’ll get two name submissions, and so on and so forth.

“You can choose one name and submit it multiple times for a better chance of it being chosen, or enter a few of your favourite names,” says the Humane Society.

“We will be operating on good faith, so PLEASE ONLY comment your name choices once you have donated.”

Once you’ve donated, you can submit your name suggestion by commenting on the Humane Society’s original Facebook post.

Anyone interested in donating can do so in person at the Prince George Humane Society (Unit 11 - 1839 First Ave.), through the website, directly to the Humane Society’s account at Ospika Animal Hospital or through PayPal.
