Baxter will need surgeries after being hit by a car.
This story broke my heart. Another sad hit and run case. Baxter was just saved after he was hit by a car. The force was so hard that he sustained severe damage to the tissue on his hind legs. Ripping his body into pieces.
Baxter was rushed to the Emergency Vet by volunteers and put into their ICU. He was so fortunate that he did not have any fractures but he still had extensive wounds that are so deep that his bones were visible. This is one of the deepest wounds doctors have seen.
He has already undergone two surgeries to repair and close the wounds. He will continue to receive hydrotherapy to help the tissue heal fully. And will need more surgery. This is going to take a lot for this sweet boy to heal. Will you help us?
Injuries such as Baxter's are more common than we would like, but it is animals like Baxter that remind us why we do this work every single day. To help us continue to help animals like Baxter, please purchase one of his tees, hoodies, bags or bracelets. Baxter is currently still recovering in the ICU and desperately needs your help.
We have created this page to help AARCS raise the funds needed to cover Baxter’s many surgeries cost and continued care including hydrotherapy. With every purchase you give this innocent victim the second chance he needs!
