**ADOPTION ANNOUNCEMENT**Benny came to Shepherds Without Borders after being ran over in a driveway After the being contacted by the vet’s office, SWB sprang into action – thanks to our supporters and a great foster home, we were able to offer Benny rescue and get him the surgery he needed, but his story was not over. After recuperating, it was clear that Benny needed physical therapy AND another FHO surgery on the other side – both hips were broken A HUGE thank you to the doctors staff of SVRC who went over and above in their care of Benny; especially his new foster mom, who could manage his care and visits easier. Benny is still on his road to recovery with physical therapy, but he is taking it all in stride with true Benny-gusto. As they weeks progressed, it became extremely clear that Benny had chosen his fur-ever home (including his best furry fren) and they have made it official!! CONGRATULATIONS to Benny and his new furever family
BENNY SECOND SURGERY PUPDATE
BENNY PUPDATE – SURGERY #2 COMPLETED!! Benny had his second FHO surgery, this time on the left side. Benny is recovering and doing well and, due to the delay of this pupdate/post, is officially out of his cone!! Now on for his second stent of physical therapy!!
We are OVERJOYED that his surgery was a complete success, but these surgeries come with a cost. Even with the discounts, they are BIG bills for a small rescue. Can you help us with paying for Benny’s second surgery (complete cost of this surgery was $2269) – this only ensures we can continue to RESCUE DOGS THAT DESERVE A CHANCE TO BE LOVED

Happy scorchin Saturday pupdate on Benny
Benny underwent surgery and all indications are that the surgery was 100% succesful!! Now, Benny is under close supervision by the staff and doctors at our friends at @Mercy Animal Hospital in Fair Oaks and his pawsome foster family Benny will have office rechecks every few days with splint changes.
Not only does Benny sport the cone of shame, but his right back leg is splinted (nondisplaced tibia fracture) and his left back leg leg was shaved for surgical intervention for his hip. Benny is eating great and taking all his medicine like a champ!! He is not allowed to try walking yet, but we can’t wait to show you when he can!!
This boy is sweet as they come and uses his eyes for attention… I mean, it works
Shout out to all you donors that have contributed to his expenses, the surgeon, the staff and doctors at Mercy Pet Hospital and especially to his foster home
