MEET NOVA!! This beautiful chocolate girl is about a year old and one of the newest additions to LFS. Nova is as sweet as can be and seems to love other dogs. She walks well on a leash and while she has some puppy energy, she is a pretty gentle girl. Unfortunately Nova must not have had the easiest time before ending up at the shelter, as she had an old injury to her left hip and wasn’t putting much weight on her left back leg. X-rays showed a gnarly femur fracture, and Nova will need surgery (FHO) so we can get her mobility back and get her feeling comfortable  again. Nova also needs to be spayed. Surgery will cost between $2000-2500. 

We are a small rescue, and with all the dogs we’ve pulled from shelters, vetted, and housed in the last couple of weeks, we just don’t have those kind of funds right now. With our foster shortage, many of our dogs are having to stay in boarding with daycare, and those costs quickly add up. Nova is only a year old and has an entire life left to live ahead of her. We can’t let her keep living in pain, but we need your help. If you can donate for Nova’s care, please go to or donate with the link on this post. 

Alternatively, if you cannot donate but would like to become a foster family for one of our many dogs in need, please go to Email with any questions. Thank you!
