Stuffy's story:

Imagine that you broke both of your legs and never had them treated. Imagine the constant agony that would be - for Stuffy that is his reality.

The subject of a BC SPCA cruelty investigation, Stuffy was seized by BC SPCA constables with two broken front legs that require immediate orthopedic surgery.

“Stuffy is such a sweetheart! Despite the pain he’s been in, he’s so friendly and affectionate,” says BC SPCA senior animal protection officer Eileen Drever. “We are currently investigating the circumstances that led to his seizure. We just want him to have the chance to have a fresh start, with the surgery he needs for him to be an active, happy pup again.”

Stuffy needs orthopedic surgery on both front legs in order for his injuries to heal.

After his surgeries and recovery, Stuffy will be available for adoption, Drever notes.
“He’s such an adorable little guy! He’s already been through so much in his short life – we’re hoping he’ll find loving, forever home with guardians who will lavish him with the love and attention he deserves.”

*Goal includes: surgery, medication, and daily care for Stuffy until he’s ready for adoption. If his medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in his name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.

Last week Stuffy had his four-hour surgery. It will still take some time for him to fully heal, but we know he'll make a full recovery. I know that Stuffy's story touched many hearts and that many were interested in bringing him into their homes - if that was you, thank you!

As of this past weekend, Stuffy has found his new family, where he will never have to suffer again and will be loved unconditionally.
