Maria Michelle needs funds to cover her surgery costs after being hit by a car.

  • Breed: Poodle/Terrier Mix
  • Name: Maria Michelle
  • Color: Pepper
  • Size: Small
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Young

$1,000.00 raised of $1,000.00

Young Poodle/Terrier Mix was hit by a car and taken to the shelter to sit in pain until someone claimed her. No one did. We have asked frequently for your help in recent weeks, and we need you again. Maria Michelle aka Pepper needs you. We pulled her from a local shelter and she was immediately taken to one of our vets. Maria Michelle is 18 months and just 8 pounds. Sadly, we found, after rushing her to our vet, that the entire right side of her pelvis is shattered and her internal organs have a lot of bruising. She dragged her hind end and was unable to stand. In addition, she is expressing milk. Which means she has puppies out there somewhere. 

Maria Michelle had surgery on Friday to help correct her pelvis and ease her pain. We need to raise $1000 right away. Please please consider a donation!


  • We would like to thank everyone who donated towards Maria Michelle's care.  She ultimately had two surgeries and her leg was amputated.  She has been adopted by a wonderful couple in Western New York and is living a very happy and loved life.  Bless you all!

  • Maria Michelle is still not using her right hind leg and it may need to be amputated. The vet said her pelvis was severely shattered and she likely has nerve damage. We are hoping to have her seen at rehabilitation vet for opinion on physical therapy. At this point, that leg is solely an appendage that is in her way.

    Thank you all for your support and helping Maria Michelle during this time.
