Success Story: Sega


Feeding Pets of the Homeless received a call from a woman who was helping Sega, a Retriever mix who is owned by a homeless man in Springfield, OR. Sega and his guardian were both hit by a car. His owner was hospitalized for serious injuries and Sega was transported to an emergency veterinarian. This woman had exhausted her credit cards helping Sega with emergency treatment.  Sega had two broken legs. The front one would heal with a splint, but the back one needed surgery with a plate and screws.

Feeding Pets of the Homeless’ case manager started calling different veterinarians and organizations in Eugene, OR. They found an animal hospital willing to help with the surgery. The surgery would normally cost approximately $3,795, but the doctor was willing to help and write off the balance. Feeding Pets of the Homeless contributed $600 to help with Sega’s surgery.

We called Sega’s guardian in the hospital and he was very grateful Feeding Pets of the Homeless was helping with the surgery as well as the help of his friend who was caring for Sega while he had a few more surgeries.
