Our shelter partner, Turks and Caicos Society for the Prevention of Cruelty for Animals (TCSPC) found eight-month-old Niko fending for himself on the streets. He’d been dragging himself around on his two severely fractured hind legs for months, likely the result of being hit by a car.
Naturally, TCSPC reached out to North Shore Animal League America to get sweet Niko the medical care he so desperately needed. Once in the safety of our Port Washington, NY campus, his initial examination determined that Niko’s leg bones had fused abnormally, and we arranged for a consultation with an orthopedic specialist. Niko receives physical therapy to strengthen his legs, and was fitted with a hind limb assist cart to improve his mobility. The Pet Sponsorship Program assures that Niko will receive help for as long as he needs it, even if it’s for the rest of his life.
