Tonka’s back on her paws

It doesn’t look like it, but this little girl had a lucky break.  Seven-month-old Tonka fell off a deck earlier this year and snapped both her front legs.  Her horrified guardians rushed her to a vet where her legs were set in casts, but they also learned she would need surgery to insert pins and plates that would save the use of Tonka’s legs.  The cost was substantial and despite borrowing and scraping together every cent they could, the amount still came up short.  Fortunately, VHS was able to help out through our McVitie Fund for sick and injured animals.  Tonka got her operation and she’s expected to make a full recovery.
