Lucky could barely walk – you should see him now!

When I see Lucky playing, his favourite stuffed toy in his mouth, I am overjoyed by the incredible transformation I’ve witnessed.

Lucky truly lives up to his name. He is fortunate to have received the care needed to save his badly injured leg – care he didn’t have access to in the remote Northern community where he came from.

Lucky was one of 72 dogs transported from Northern Manitoba and Northern Ontario in June to find new homes. He was flown into Toronto to receive immediate medical treatment for a fracture that had healed improperly, preventing him from putting weight on his right front leg.

Watch a video of him before his rehabilitation.

After undergoing surgery and a month of rehabilitation on his leg, plus the removal of several broken teeth, totalling over $4,500 in care, Lucky is now available for adoption at the Ontario SPCA Orangeville & District Animal Centre.

Lucky’s adoption day has been a long time coming and we couldn’t be happier for him. He owes his second chance to dedicated staff and volunteers, generous community supporters and our animal wellness partners who are united in saving animals’ lives.

Lucky’s rehoming mission is part of the Ontario SPCA’s Support the North campaign, which is aimed at bringing awareness, attention and action to the lack of animal wellness resources in Northern communities.
