THE TOBIAS FUND STORY
Country Acres Animal Shelter established the Tobias Fund in 2009 after picking a Rottweiler later named Toby in the Town of Cuyler. Toby had been hit by a car and needed immediate orthopedic surgery. His disposition stole our hearts, and we knew we needed to do something for him. With limited funds we decided to act fast and put together a bottle and can drive. Thanks to shelter staff and a very generous volunteer the funds were available for the surgery. At this point we decided that we would plan ahead and establish a fund to help with dogs needing extra care. We have a few fundraisers throughout the year to keep this fund available. We have been able to have dogs receive dental care, cherry eye surgery, amputations, hip surgery and mass removal procedures. Your donation to the Tobias fund provides extra medical care for dogs injured and anything that is medically needed for a dog to better suit them for adoption.
"Fred" is a five-year-old male dog that was not redeemed by his owner after being hit by a car on 1/10/23. So, he has settled right in and made himself at home with us. He had quite a few cuts and scrapes, a large laceration on the inside of his hind leg and a dislocated hip. His hip was set in place, and he was placed in a sling but unfortunately it didn’t hold so he is headed to surgery 1/30/23 (for a femoral head ostectomy) He loves life, loves all of the shelter staff and deserves this new chance so we thank everyone that donates towards surgery and giving him this opportunity. Our Tobias fund provides medical care for the animals and is always in need of donations to keep moving forward so please consider donating as we have several medical cases at the shelter at this time. We also want to thank Groton City Animal Hospital for always going above and beyond to help us make these things possible. We couldn’t do it without them!
Bentley pictured here is a prime example on how your donations help the dogs. Bentley was found badly injured in 2018. We believe more than likely hit by a car. He had a severely fractured femur that x-rays determined was unable to be pinned. After much consideration and evaluation it was determined that amputation was in his best interest. With the help of donations Bentley was able to have his surgery and now lives his best life possible with his adopters.
