Franklin is a bright, affectionate, 3 year old dachshund that lost the use of his back legs due to a condition known as thoracolumbar intervertebral disk disease (IVDD). Franklin needed surgery to survive, but his owners were unable to afford the cost and opted to surrender him to a good samaritan’s care instead.
Thanks to our partnership with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation and Southeast Veterinary Hospital’s very own AVMF Veterinary Care Charitable Fund, Dr. Timberlake was able to coordinate with a specialist to get Franklin’s surgery. And now, just over a week later, he’s finally on the road to recovery! Keep your eyes on this space for updates on Franklin as he heals, goes through physical therapy, learns to use his legs again, and finds his forever home!
