Milo was hacked with an Axe and left to die.
I am sorry. I know this is graphic but we desperately need your help. Without it we can not save this innocent victim. Milo was hacked with an axe on his back. This caused his back to split open.
Milo was found playing with kids in a rural area of Alabama when he was picked up by an animal control officer. Thats when an incredible group of people went into action. Our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock received a frantic call that if rescue was not found for Milo he would be brought to the nearest shelter and be immediately euthanized due to his condition. They immediately said YES to helping.
His abuse will be investigated but seeing how he was found as a stray the perpetrator will most likely not be found. This is a very frustrating part of animal rescue that we know all too well.
Milo was rushed to the Emergency Vet Clinic for life saving surgery and care. As I am sure you know this will not be easy for little Milo. Doctors say the exposed open hole is oozing with bugs and maggots because it has been left untreated for days. It's so deep his bone is exposed. He's emaciated with cuts all over his body. Will you help us save him?
UPDATE 1-29-17: Remember Milo who we saved after he was found with a gaping hole in his back? What we thought happened to Milo, that he was hacked with an ax has been confirmed by our vet to not be the case. In fact, Milo WAS SHOT with intent to kill him. Lucky for Milo the person shooting missed his chest and shot his back.
When surgery was being performed to close the area, it was evident that gun powder was at the site and Milos bone had been grazed with a bullet. Thankfully the surgeon was able to clean the area, remove the gun powder and stitch the deep hole.Today Milo is continuing his recovery. Milo is also heartworm positive and treatment will begin for this as well. Milo is very lucky he's alive today.
This is the worst abuse case I have seen in a very long time. We have partnered with RDR to create this campaign to raise the funds needed for Milo’s care. Everything you see here from a tee shirt, hoodie, tote or bracelet triggers a donation to save his life! Please help us give this pup the second chance he deserves. No animal should ever endure the abuse he has. With your help we can change his life.
