Help Gizmo

When Gizmo was hit by a car he suffered severe damage to his right rear leg, which he landed on after being thrown from the front of the vehicle.

Although rushed into emergency care, where vets attempted to save the leg, the injury was too great and three-year old Gizmo will have to lose his leg.

Despite this accident and the pain caused by it, Gizmo is always optimistic, adores cuddles and loves his toys. You can add more happiness to his life by giving him the surgery he needs.

After  being hit by a car, Gizmo’s back leg was so damaged that he needed urgent surgery to remove it.

Today, Gizmo has made a full recovery and is back to being his happy-go-lucky self. The happiest part of this story is that once he completely healed he was quick to find his forever family!
