LEG UP PROGRAM

SPEND A MINUTE WITH WILLIE!


Willie's cone and stitches are gone now! Your generous gifts to the Leg Up Fund are why Willie could say goodbye to a painful, engorged, useless eye.

JUST LOOK at what a good, smart boy this little imp can be! YOU gave him the gift of wellness. Thank you!

PLEASE make a tax-deductible contribution to close the books on Willie’s veterinary treatment...

EVERYBODY needs a leg up sometime!  But if you are a sick or injured homeless pet, who will step up to see that you get the care you need?  Our LEG UP PROGRAM may be able to help.

WHAT IS LEG UP?   

 

Established in 2015, LEG UP is a volunteer-run program that sponsors critical veterinary treatment for at-risk unowned dogs and cats found in Syracuse and brought to the municipal shelter, Dewitt Animal Hospital-Shelter.  LEG UP patients suffer from serious but treatable illnesses and injuries.  Adoption is the end goal.  All donations are tax-deductible.

WHY IS LEG UP NEEDED?  

There are no other options or services for these vulnerable but deserving homeless animals!  Virtually daily the Dewitt Animal Hospital-Shelter (DAH-S) receives strays via Dog Control, law enforcement, and Good Samaritans; some of these homeless pets are seriously sick or injured.   A one-of-a-kind program, LEG UP is an effective way to fight the suffering and homelessness of these pets who have no families to love and care for them. 

 

Unlike other shelters in Central New York, DAH-S is not a nonprofit and so cannot mount fundraising campaigns that offer tax-deductible status to donors wishing to support necessary veterinary care for the ill and injured strays.  But LEG UP can!  Because AAGS is a 501c3, all contributions to LEG UP are tax-deductible.*

 

 

 

WILLIE HAS GONE HOME!


He even has a sister with only one eye as well!  Willie is very happy!

 

It could never have been possible without YOU!

WHO HAS LEG UP HELPED?

 

As of March 2018, LEG UP has helped 24 dogs and cats whose treatments have averaged over $1,000 each.

Donors have allowed LEG UP to sponsor treatment for a variety of surgical and non-surgical conditions:  amputations, abdominal explorations, eyelid repair for entropion, jaw surgery and dental cleanings with extractions, generalized mange, heartworm, and even a professional grooming to remove painful and constrictive matting of fur.
