Hero: Left to die in a drainage ditch with 2 pounds of matted hair.
WOW we are shocked right now. And that takes a lot to shock us. Animal Control Found this poor creature in a Ditch on the side of the road most likely hit by car. They called A Shelter Friend for help. We were horrified at the condition this little boy was in. We could not even tell if he was a boy or girl.
Rescuers rushed him to the emergency vet . The stench was gaging as they started to shave him, and the thought of what poor Hero has endured was almost too much for our minds to grasp. Hero has an open wound that is a tumor opened by the impact. He did not fight nor struggle as the vet staff removed more than 2 pounds of filthy matted hair. It was certainly painful for Hero to endure yet he just lay there lifeless… almost like he had given up on life.
We were in tears at the thought of how long this poor little boy had suffering in this condition Sitting in that ditch, whimpering, waiting for either a merciful death or someone to help him. We had to help, This poor little boy needs us. Today he is at the Emergency vet on IV, and pain medication and hopefully he will be strong enough to address his dislocated hip and his tumor, But for today we just hope Hero survives. Hero needs your help. Once Hero is well enough to travel, he will have an FHO surgery ( femoral head surgery) in NYC with Rescue Dogs Rock
