Diesel arrived at West Suburban Humane Society from Hancock County Animal Control in March 2017 as an adorable ten-week-old puppy . Diesel was adopted quickly , staying in the kennel for only a week . Unfortunately , after four years , his adopter returned him to us due to a lifestyle change . At West Suburban Humane Society , we make a lifelong commitment to our animals the moment they walk through our door . We always take our adopted animals back , whatever the reason , whenever they need us .

Diesel was understandably nervous being back in the kennel , but he adapted quickly . He has such a sweet personality that he soon became a volunteer favorite . After a few days , we noticed that Diesel was not putting weight on his right back leg . We took him to the vet , where X-rays confirmed that he had a torn ACL . The vet recommended that we see an orthopedic specialist to determine a treatment plan . Upon further examination , the specialist determined that Diesel needed surgery to correct the tear . Because Diesel is a larger dog , he must have a specialized surgery called a TPLO . It is an extensive surgery with an eight- to ten-week recovery .
As you can imagine , Diesel ’ s surgery is very costly , totaling about $ 6,000 . Donating toward Diesel ’ s surgery will not only guarantee that Diesel will get the medical care he needs , but it will also help the adoption center when other animals are in crisis . By taking some of Diesel ’ s financial burden off West Suburban Humane Society now , you will be putting us in a better position to support the next homeless pet with medical issues .
Diesel deserves a pain-free life , and when you donate to his cause , you will help make that goal a reality . Diesel will soon have his surgery and will be recovering with one of our foster families . Once he is completely healed , Diesel will be up for adoption . Whoever adopts him will be very lucky and will have a best friend for life !
Thank you for considering a donation for Diesel and others like him who need extensive medical care . Your donation can and does save lives !
