Generous donations to RSPCA Peterborough funded the much-needed operation

Following a successful appeal by the RSPCA’s Peterborough branch, Lady got the operation she needed and now has a second chance at happiness.

Lady is an 18-month-old Saluki-Lurcher cross who was found tied up outside Broadway Vets in Peterborough on January 25.

The local RSPCA branch took her in but discovered she had a fractured foreleg and needed a £2000 operation to fix it.

Staff appealed to local people to help fund the vital op and thanks to generous donations Lady was able to have the procedure  on February 20 and is now recovering well.

She had two plates inserted into her leg to stabilize her fracture.

Lady was bleeding, dirty and matted when she was found but since being in RSPCA care she has blossomed and is a lovely friendly dog.

She is having some physiotherapy with RSPCA staff but will soon be ready to find her new home. Lady will need someone who has plenty of time to devote to her and to continue with the exercises to get her back to full strength.

RSPCA Animal Welfare Officer Kathy Hornig said: “Lady is an absolute dream, she is a wonderful dog.

“She is so friendly, she will make a wonderful companion for somebody when she is back to full strength.”

RSPCA Peterborough branch manager Paul Markley said: “We are so grateful to the donors who have dug deep and made all this possible. They have made a very real difference to Lady’s life and allowed her the chance to start afresh in a loving new home.”
