Cookie is at the Quinte Humane Society in Eastern Ontario


I have a very bad fracture to my femur and it will cost $700.00 to fix. The shelter is presently collecting donations to help me.

Cookie was born at the shelter just over 7 months ago. She was adopted to a
nice family as soon as she was old enough to leave her Mom. As Cookie got
older, her barking (while left alone) was bothering the neighbors and
Cookie was returned to us. She was as sweet as we remembered her, although very timid, especially around men. Not long after being brought back, we noticed Cookie limping. We took her to the vet for an exam and they originally thought that she sprained her leg in her kennel somehow. She was prescribed some painkiller, and ordered to be brought back if she didn't start using her leg in the next few days. Three days later she was still limping, so back to the vet for x-rays. To our surprise they showed that she had broken her femur!!

Cookie is a very special girl...you see, her life almost ended before it started when her Mother Cora was dumped at a dog pound while heavily pregnant. Cora was on death row, so when asked to take her, we promptly agreed. Cora and all of Cookie's littermates have been adopted into wonderful new homes. We know that Cookie has potential to be a great pet for some lucky family once again. We are going to send Cookie in for the surgery to fix her injury, but we do need help.

The surgery will cost at least $700 - $700 that we'll have to take away from countless other animals just as needy. If we can raise that much money for Cookie then we could spay/neuter seven other pets. Please consider making a donation - it's tax deductible and you will be saving a life - literally

awwww poor cookie, :( I hate to say this but, timid of men? Broken femur? Poor girl. They should set up credit card donations, makes supporting the cause much easier and people tend to give more readily when it is simple. I guess that means she will be at the shelter for awhile then? Unless she has a foster home. She is so sweet looking isn't she

Would they have to put her down if she didn't get enough money to pay for it? Poor thing. :(
