Falkor: Savagely beaten with a bat, while trying to protect a child

Falkor: Savagely beaten with a bat, while trying to protect a child

 

Latest: Falkor successfully had eye surgery and is resting comfortably with his foster family.

Falkor was found barely struggling to survive with massive trauma all over his body and his face/skull took the brunt of the abuse. Falkor, Sharpei/Chow mix, was savagely beaten with a bat over and over again, while trying to protect a child. 

Second Chance Rescue NYC immediately pulled Falkor from a likely fate at the shelter. He remains in VERY guarded condition. The major obstacle the rescue is facing is the swelling of the brain which prohibited the medical team to take x-rays or even the surgery. 

Falkor has a broken jaw, broken teeth, needs to have the right eye removed, is currently blind in the left (could be from the swelling), frontal lobe of skull is broken, eye socket fractured, swelling of the brain with possible brain damage (too early to tell) and is disoriented.

In order to move to the next level, the swelling must keep coming down and it is way too early to tell what the long term effects will be for Falkor. Second Chance Rescue NYC is committed to doing right for Falkor, but it is a slow diligent process.

Second Chance Rescue NYC will work to continue to stabilize Falcor, monitor mental awareness to evaluate progress of concussion, manage pain and continue IV fluids and antibiotics.
Animal control has launched a full investigation. All medical findings have and will be sent to animal control to help with the case and investigation. 

We encourage everyone right now to focus solely on helping to save Falcor, as the investigation continues. The top proirity is giving Falcor a chance at life. With each and every purchase you make right now, you can help save Falcor. 



UPDATE (10/11/16)
We have provided this freedom ride from the shelter and the pictures upon arrival at the ER.
FALKOR remains in VERY guarded condition. The major obstacle we are facing is the swelling of the brain which prohibited the medical team to take x-rays last night or even the surgery. The x-rays are being taken now. All pictures and medical notes are being handed directly over to the Animal Control Officer for this case.  A case is being built to pursue the abuser! 

Here are the facts as they stand now:
Falkor has a broken jaw, broken teeth, needs to have the right eye removed, is currently blind in the left (could be from the swelling), frontal lobe of skull is broken, eye socket fractured, swelling of the brain, could have possible brain damage (too early to tell). Is disoriented.  He still desperately needs your help! 



UPDATE (10/12/16)
He is finally stable enough to have his jaw reconstructed and we will see what others surprises his medical team may find while he is under aside from several broken teeth. We are consulting with a few eye specialists in regards to the removal or the eye due to several nerves that were damaged. Talks of a prosthetic are in the mix as well. His disposition, according to volunteers and the entire medical team, he is very sweet and docile. He is about to go into surgery #1, please pray for him. 



UPDATE (10/15/16)
The eye surgery was a major success!!! The only concern during the surgery was that the doctor discovered he has cancer in his scrotum. This poor boy can't catch a break! We are sending it out to see what we are dealing with here. Falkor will be able to be released in a few days. He will recover in medical foster care and after a few weeks we will have him assessed by a PTSD trainer to see what psychological effects will have to be dealt with.



UPDATE (10/20/16)
FALKOR IS LEAVING FOR FOSTER TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He comes back in a few weeks to check the Jaw and eye--next on the docket is to have his PTSD trainer visit this weekend to make sure we resolve any issues that may arise. This courageous senior is lucky to be alive and we are lucky to have been part of his recovery! Please send your love to this sweet boy! He deserves every bit!


UPDATE 5-1-17:

Hey everybody! It's been a while. But that is a good thing when it comes to Falkor! He went to the vet today, for a recheck on his jaw and hips! Awesome news, his jaw is just about completely healed. Rescuers have been waiting on that news for what seems like so long, and we couldn't be more thrilled! Falkor's hips are looking decent and as long as he seems to get around good and pain free, doctors won't be taking any further action on them anytime soon. Other than vitamins and supplements that will help with his old body and joints.
