Apollo: An abuser broke my jaw!

Apollo: An abuser broke my jaw!

 

APOLLO NEEDS OUR HELP! We received an urgent plea this afternoon and said "Of course we can help!" The poor guy is so sweet but is severely injured. He has a broken jaw, infection and cable marks across his hips. Rescuers worked quickly.

Rescuers took in Apollo yesterday afternoon. We wish Apollo could tell us his story but he can't. The vet could only summarize that it appears this boy was tied up with a type of metal cable and his jaw was intentionally broken by an abuser. 

Even though he is hurting, he goes up to everyone he meets with his tail wagging. My heart is breaking for him. Every time he tries to eat or drink, his jaw clicks from the broken bones.

The injury is an old injury and has major infection set in. The vet cannot operate until it is gone. Apollo is going to receive antibiotics and several pain meds for the next week then he will be evaluated for surgery. Right now we are focused on saving his life!

We have partnered with Troy Animal Rescue Project to help raise the funds needed for baby Apollo. I know these images are hard to see but I cannot do this without you. One simple shirt you can give Apollo a second chance at life every pet deserves. Will you join me?

[UPDATE] Apollo made it through surgery.  He had two breaks in his jaw. A break in the front and one in the back. The front break was repaired. The back break could not be repaired as it was too dangerous with risk of artery damage. Apollo's jaw is wired for the next six weeks and he will be on a liquid diet with close monitoring during feeding times.  He is expected to recover and be able to live a long healthy life. For now he still needs our help! He will need to be on a soft food diet for his entire life. He will spend tonight at the vets and go back to his medical foster home tomorrow for recovery.
