Hi, I'm Carisa. Adopt Me!

Terrier Mix


Adult, Female

Carisa is a sweet and gentle 1-year-old Terrier mix that was hit by a car when running loose in Salinas. A Good Samaritan saw the accident, and took Carisa to the Hitchcock Road Animal Services. Without the resources to treat a dog with expensive medical needs, the shelter contacted AFRP for help, and Carisa was immediately transferred to a foster home. This resilient little dog survived her encounter with a car, but she suffered a fractured hip and she will undergo FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy) surgery to give her the opportunity to regain function in her hind leg and live a happy, pain-free life. We are hoping to raise $2,000 to help cover the costs of her orthopedic surgery and follow up care. She is expected to make a complete recovery and she’ll be available for adoption once she has healed. Thank you for helping Carisa get her wag back!
