Updated: Our barn dog AJ needs $3,500 for surgery to save his leg


Our dog AJ is in a cast while we raise money to fund his medical care.

Update, December 11, 2019 We’ve exceeded our fundraising goal, to $4,149.88 as of this morning, December 11. Everyone at the Mounted Horse Patrol Association and the Unit is humbled and immensely thankful for the donations made by over 100 individuals yesterday and today. Thanks to your support, AJ is undergoing surgery today to repair his leg. You can continue to donate below and 100% of the proceeds will be earmarked for future medical and veterinary care for AJ and our horses in the future. Money donated here to the IMPD Mounted Horse Patrol Association is tax-deductible. Earlier, December 10, 2019 Everyone at the IMPD Mounted Patrol and Horse Patrol Association were sad to see that our barn dog, AJ, injured his leg on December 9. We’re not entirely sure of the circumstances of how he injured it. We suspect he may have been hit by a car. We took AJ to the vet and learned our options are either a $1,500 amputation or $3,500 surgery. We need your help to raise $3,500 to cover the cost of this leg and life-preserving surgery. Naturally, we love AJ as much as our horses. And AJ is vital to our operations here helping us keep the barn and field free of pests. The IMPD Mounted Horse Patrol Association can receive donations on behalf of the Unit. The Association will also be directly covering the costs of his vet care. With the surgery, his veterinarian expects AJ to make a complete recovery in due time.
