Lumi’s Lucky Break
Lumi, a 1 year old Labrador Retriever and Terrier mix, was found as a stray and brought to Born Free. When she arrived she had a broken leg that had not been treated and had healed improperly. Lumi always limped and it was obvious to all the volunteers that Lumi was in constant pain. A family volunteered to foster Lumi before the surgery and during her rehabilitation period. Two weeks ago, Lumi had a complex 3 hour operation which was successful. The doctors feel she will make a full recovery and her leg will be a good as new! Her foster mom tells us that she is recovering quickly and is very happy!
Through volunteer events and donations, Born Free raised over $2,000 to cover the cost of the surgery. In order to continue to help dogs like Lumi, we need you. Please support Born Free in our upcoming fundraisers, either by attending our annual dinner and live auction fundraiser (our first since March 2019 due to Covid) or giving online at Give Miami Day Nov 15-18th.
