Kal was hit by a car and has brain damage.
Friends this is such a horrible case. We need your help so much. Kal and another pup were hit by a car on a busy expressway. His friend died on impact. We are heartbroken but must focus on saving Kal’s life. Rescue Dogs Rock volunteers rushed him to their Emergency Vet Clinic where doctors were waiting to jump into action. Please will you help?
Kal is in critical condition. I am sorry I know this images are graphic but this is the reality we are in. His eye is crushed and KAL has brain trauma. Onto of that he has a punctured lung from the hit. A main concern is that brain matter has pushed out to the injured eye area. He is in emergency surgery as we speak.
Kal also has severe tick disease and heartworms which is complicating his condition as placing him under anesthesia is life threatening and could kill him instantly. But there is no choice Doctors have to save his life. His eye removal will have to wait until he is more stable. He could additionally need surgery for his punctured lung, RDR is waiting on diagnostic testing.
Right now he's in severe shock from the hit and paralyzed but we are hoping he will regain function now that he's being treated at the ER Hospital. Rescue Dogs Rock doesn’t know if he will make it but they won't let him die without giving everything medically possible to save his life. This is their promise to him. It's not his fault he's left to roam aimlessly. Please help he need all of your Prayers and support. RDR just paid $1,500 upfront to take over his emergency medical care.

UPDATE 7-16-17: KAL WILL BE HAVING SURGERY THIS EVENING TO REMOVE HIS EYE. Kal just received a special blood transfusion with extra blood platelets to combat his low blood count due to tick disease. This much needed transfusion will help when he undergoes surgery tonight. His medical team feels Kal's eye must come out tonight , even though it is risky due to KAL being heart worm positive and suffering from tick borne illness and his punctured lung which occurred after he was hit by the car. There is no choice now as the surgery MUST Happen Tonight for Kal's best chance at survival.
UPDATE 7-26-17: Kal continues on his path of survival and is doing amazing at their Texas Vet Partner In fact he's doing so well, he's ready to make the transport to NY this weekend. TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO SAID KAL SHOULD BE PUT TO SLEEP , WE SAY .......NEVER STOP BELIEVING. KAL suffered the loss of his eye from being hit by a car but is adjusting very well. KAL is a stunning German Sheppard and only 1 year old , 55 lbs and has his entire life ahead to be a beloved family member. KAL is KID CAT DOG FRIENDLY. Rescue Dogs Rock is looking for immediate placement for KAL.
FINAL UPDATE : Remember Kal? Well he got his miracle! Here he is “living the dream” in his new life where he is loved and cherished every single day! His new mommy says he is WONDERFUL!
