Donny was picked up by a good samaritan who lived in Brownsville (almost 100 miles away). We don’t know how long poor Donny lay there suffering before he was helped, but we know it was at least 24 hours!
The Good Samaritan brought the abused Donny to the Emergency Vets for life saving care. Then rescuers heard the worst news. Emergency Doctors extracted a 9mm bullet from his leg. Then rescuers were hit with more bad news. He has tetanus from bullet and a now a tick in his leg. He has been given the antidote and strong antibiotics, but they may need to amputate the leg.
There are other previous wounds that may be infected as well. We pray and hope he feels well soon. Several rescue groups are working together to save him But his medical bills have already been over $1000.00, and he is expected to need more care and a possible surgery.
We have partnered with Yaqui Animal Rescue and Ruff House Rescue NY to create the Animal Welfare Awareness candles, jewelry and apparel you see below. With every purchase you help give Donny the life saving care he desperately needs. With your help he will never feel pain again.
