Lady is a two-year-old dog that needs orthopedic knee surgery

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Wisconsin Humane Society is calling upon the public’s help to raise money so a homeless dog can have a needed surgery.

Lady is a two-year-old dog. She has been featured on Facebook and even appeared on FOX6 as the pet of the day. But after a few weeks of being in the adoption program, Lady began to limp. It was a sign there was something seriously wrong with her.

Lady has a knee problem in both legs: luxating patellas, which is a condition where the kneecaps pop out of place. Without surgery, her knees will deteriorate rapidly and cause her a lifetime of pain. It is a debilitating condition, but one that can be treated.

The staff member at the Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center (WVRC) in Waukesha learned about Lady’s condition, and graciously agreed to donate a large portion of the surgery. WHS is trying to raise $2,700 to cover the rest of the surgery.

A special fundraising effort in Lady’s honor has been posted on the humane society’s website at Contributions can also be made by calling 414-431-6270 or mailing them to: Wisconsin Humane Society “For Lady,” 4500 W. Wisconsin Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53208. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
