Jimmy was diagnosed with dislocated patella in both hind legs (3rd degree left and 2nd degree right).

In his case the patellar dislocation was caused by the femoral valgus deformity and therefore, the DFO operation was recommended for both his legs in order to prevent the development of arthritis and other deformities that would lead Jimmy to become incapacitated and unable to run.

The cost of the operation for both legs with rehabilitation and medication included is estimated to be approximately 1900 euros.

If Jimmy doesn't have the operation, he could be seriously injured and not have the happy life he had, full of running, playing...

We came here to ask for help in this regard, it is a somewhat expensive amount for Jimmy's owners and even a little at a time was already a great help. Dogs are a great joy in this world, let's try to return the great support that dogs give us in bad times and in good times.

Jimmy's joy is contagious and deserves to be preserved. Let's help Jimmy! Thank you very much for your availability!

About the author

Jimmy is a puppy and the Mafra Animal institution that helps puppies to have a better life needs help with Jimmy's operation because unfortunately it's a lot of money and Mafra Animal can't afford it.

About Mafra Animal:

MafrAnimal is an animal protection association that was created with the aim of helping and protecting animals, in their diversity. Our field of intervention is predominantly in the Municipality of Mafra, but we aim to have an intervention role in terms of wider awareness.

We intend to protect animals from abandonment and mistreatment, and provide help and follow-up in sterilizations, adoptions, as well as food aid.

We also aim to have an interventional role in the community, in terms of civic education and awareness of the animal cause. Animals are sentient living beings, that is, as we feel

pain, cold, hunger, joy, sadness.....and they deserve our respect. That's why we promote awareness actions in schools (about all forms of animal suffering and what we can do to reduce this pain), we provide information in the various campaigns we carry out and we are active on social media!

We are a small group but with a great desire to help.

But like everything in life, to achieve our goals we need everyone's help. All who also care and share this common passion: Helping and protecting animals!

For Mafranimal to be able to help the many animals in our county and to make it an example to be followed by others, we need people to get involved and believe that together we make a difference, “It's a big fight with no end in sight and certainly not we will be able to change the world, but if we change the lives of some, it will have been worth it.

Budget and due dates

The necessary budget would be approximately 1900 euros including the operation, rehabilitation and medication. As for the timing, there is no specific period. We wanted to carry out the operation when we had the financial means available to do so.
