Julia like many others didn't have many choices when tragedy struck. On a warm summer day, her 11 week old Boxer pup named Mercedes fell and broke his right femur. Being an unemployed single mom of a 6 month old disabled baby and two other older children, she was unable to pay for Mercedes care. After one week of rejections and failed attempts to find help for Mercedes she contacted the Marvin Fund at the RISPCA.
Mercedes was transported to Dighton/Rehoboth Animal Hospital and operated on by Dr. Michael Bruzzi. Mercedes was reunited with her family on Sept. 9th and thanks to Marvin is expected to make an uneventful recovery.
