Logan’s Story


October 31st Update: Happy Halloween! Logan’s foster parents are away for a few days so Logan will be staying with an APF staff member. Today he came to visit the shelter. He is healing well and in great spirits!


October 20th Update: Word came from Dr. Glennon yesterday afternoon that Logan did great for his surgery! Dr. Glennon removed the femoral head of the broken hip and smoothed the bone to prevent any future pain. Logan will be leaving the hospital later today and going back home with his foster parents. He has a great prognosis and we are looking forward to a full recovery!

October 16th Update: Hi everyone! Logan is settling in nicely at his foster home while he awaits his new surgery date. His foster parents describe him as “very sweet and affectionate,” and say that he is easily adjusting to the new environment.

October 10th Update: Hi everyone! Logan had some tummy issues over the weekend that landed him in the ER. He is doing great now after some rest and fluids. We’re not quite sure the cause, but the veterinarians overseeing his case have recommended postponing his surgery until October 19th so he’ll be 100% going into it. We’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on his progress.

October 8th Update: We have raised the money needed for Logan’s surgery as well as some additional funds that will be used for other homeless animals in need of special medical care! Thank you to all of those who donated, helped spread the word, and expressed love and concern for this sweet boy! Check out the News Channel 10 story below:

We’d like you to meet a very special dog named Logan.

Logan, a 1-year-old pit mix, was brought to APF by a Good Samaritan, at which time APF’s veterinarian found him to have a fractured hip bone. The injury leaves Logan in pain and unable to balance properly on his leg. Surgery is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 11, at Veterinary Specialties Referrals Center in Pattersonville, NY.

APF’s veterinary staff typically provides medical care to surrendered animals at the shelter, but Logan’s condition requires specialized surgery that will cost approximately $3,500. Logan is expected to make a full recovery.

“This is a unique situation that requires an expensive surgery for a very special, sociable dog,” said Deb Balliet, APF Executive Director. We are looking to the community to help us give Logan the happy, pain-free life that he deserves.”

Following the surgery, APF will place Logan into foster care while he recovers. Once he is able to run and play like other young dogs again, APF will work to place Logan in a loving forever home.

There are two convenient ways to contribute to Logan’s Surgery Fund:

1. By donating online.

2. By mailing a check to the Animal Protective Foundation, 53 Maple Avenue, Scotia, NY 12302.

Any funds received beyond the goal will be used to provide medical care to other homeless animals in APF’s care.
