Christmas story

Lethbridge woman rescues run-over dog.

Schroeder learned the options were euthanasia or amputation. In the meantime, the owner had been reached and euthanasia requested.
“I got in touch with the vet so I just said, spur of the moment, to do amputation and I’ll take responsibility for her,” she said.
Although she realized it was a quick decision, Hopkins assured her Charity would live a perfectly normal life.
“I found out she’s a year and a half old and I wanted to give her every chance I could,” Schroeder said. “I was sort of worried this is going to cost quite a bit of money.”
The surgery came with a bill of $1,300. But offers of help came pouring in after she created a Facebook page for Charity.
“While she was still in surgery a friend handed me money,” Schroeder said. “People were instantly offering to help.”
Someone called a local radio station and they broadcast the story.
“After that aired, an anonymous donor phoned the clinic and paid the remainder of the bill,” she said. “I don’t even want anything for Christmas. People who didn’t even know me — just to help out this animal who was in a bad situation  — it just warmed my heart.”
