Sponsorship Dogs: Stella
"Stella, Stella, Stella!" We love you! Stella joined the League's Sponsor Program in 2004. Stella is a mini-Pinscher mix who came to the League through our invaluable out-of-state rescue program. Initial examinations confirmed that Stella has severe developmental and orthopedic problems with her rear legs. Although she does not appear to be experiencing pain at this time, this deformity in her gait will most likely damage her joints in the future and the League is committed to monitoring her progress and performing life-saving surgery if required.
Regardless of Stella's limitations, her life is just as important to the League as any normal dog. With the help of generous Sponsors like you, Stella will always be able to receive the care she needs to keep her as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
