Clayton was found burned with acid.
We have created this tee shirt campaign to help raise the funds needed to save a dog who was burned with acid.
Clayton was found laying on the side of the road with his skin draping from his body. His sad eyes were full of discharge to the point where he could barely see. Our partners at Second Chance Rescue NYC took on this case! The information has been forwarded to authorities for investigation.
Clayton's face and body appeared to have been burned with some kind of acid, leaving raw and open wounds all over. Second Chance Rescue took Clayton to a specialist where they confirmed that acid seeped through his nasal passage and was starting to heal incorrectly, causing him severe health issues. His nasal passage has gotten significantly smaller and smaller, and the vets believe it will soon start to restrict his breathing. Clayton's surgeon will need to amputate his nose and do facial reconstruction surgery.
We are heartbroken for Clayton, as he has been through so much and yet he continues to persevere. He is a sweet senior that should be safe in someone's arms getting all the love he deserves.
UPDATE: Clayton's first surgery to rebuild his nose didn't hold up so it had to be redone! This poor guy is WIPED! His leg is healing and with this second surgery his nose can start healing too. Since he is missing most of his fur from the acid burns he gets cold easily so his caregivers have him in sweaters to stay warm. Clayton still has a very long road ahead of him.
We want nothing more than for him to start a new life with a family that will always cherish him. Until he is ready for his forever home, please consider making a contribution to Clayton's lifesaving procedure.
To help with all of the specialty care and vetting for Clayton please consider purchasing one of his shirts, hoodies or coffee mugs below. With every purchase you can help SCR give him a second chance at life and love.
