The $734.89 donation to the Maverick Fund went towards the fracture repair of the dog in the photos above. He was found on Hwy 64 in Tyler after he had been hit by a car. At first he was unable to urinate on his own and had no anal tone. Thus the Spence & White Veterinarian Hospital staff were unsure if he would be an applicant for surgery because of his urinary challenge. Furthermore, if he did not regain is ability to use the bathroom on his own he would have to be euthanized. Luckily he did regain his abilities and he received a successful surgery.
Both DF2FM and Spence & White staff are very grateful for individuals who donated to the Maverick Fund. Those donations were able to save a dog’s life and give him another chance.
Named in honor of Maverick Chiaramonte, beloved boy of DF2FM supporters and volunteers Joe and Patti Chiaramonte, the Maverick Fund is a designated fund specifically to help individual pet-owning households who have experienced catastrophic events, such as house fires, tornado damage, etc. which have left the pet owner without needed resources to properly care for pets.
