Missy (No. 93) is in need of help and hopefully you can be the one to give it to her. She's a 4-year-old terrier mix who has nerve damage from an old injury that will require her to have her leg amputated. Missy came to us when she was found trying to make her way alone in Lahaina, unable to use her front left leg. Since then, she has been winning over staff, volunteers and visitors alike. With her can-do attitude and megawatt smile she never lets her disability get her down. Missy needs donations to "The Hope Fund" to get the special surgery that will get her back on three feet and even better, into a loving home.
