Imagine suffering from a degenerative form of arthritis in your knees at an old age. Now imagine if you are like Callie, in everyday pain due to this genetic condition called luxating patella. The difference is that Callie is only three years old with a promising future in a loving forever home. Unfortunately, Callie will need two separate knee surgeries to properly recover from this genetic condition. Your donations would greatly help fund her knee replacement surgery and post-op care. Your donation would not only let Callie overcome this painful condition, but put the spring back in her legs and her life.


Callie (aka Cali) is a 3-year old female pitbull mix. Her two back two knees require surgery to fix luxating patella (also known as trick knee, floating knee caps) is when the kneecap (patella) dislocates or moves out of its normal location. The surgery deepens the groove the kneecap sits in, re-aligns the patella tendon on the tibia, and tightening/releasing of the capsule on either side of the patella. She will need two separate surgeries, and we were quoted $3500 a knee, but that doesn't include post-op follow ups or meds. We are estimating our rescue will likely spend $8000. Please consider helping our rescue girl Callie!
