Mark: Hit by a car and left to die
Mark was hit by a car, severely injured and left for dead on a rural road in North Carolina. He was then picked up by animal control. The impact was so hard that Mark's bone is exposed on his hind leg. Frightened and weak, he's just a baby at a year old.
A rescuer in North Carolina was alerted to Mark's plight and stepped in and transferred Mark to an Emergency Vet to stabilize Mark in North Carolina. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC was called to help as X-rays showed that Mark sustained multiple fractures and a shattered pelvis. He would need life saving surgery to save his life.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC could not just stand by and do nothing as they believe Mark's life matters and he deserves every chance to survive. They immediately had Mark transported to NY over the weekend so he could be examined and treated by their board certified orthopedic surgeon. The surgeon states that Mark will need multiple surgeries. Mark will be going into surgery today to first repair his shattered pelvis with plates and pins. Thereafter he will need surgery for his 2 broken legs.
