Orion was shot in the head and leg.

Orion was shot in the head and leg.

 

Posted by The Arrow Fund on Monday, February 4, 2019

We have created these animal saving products to save a dog shot in the head and leg. A witness heard two gunshots and then found this poor boy. She contacted the police but they were unable to help. So our partners at The Arrow Fund were contacted and immediately rushed to the scene.

They found a dog who had a gunshot wound to the head and to one of his legs. The dog, now named Orion, was rushed to the emergency vet for life saving care. First he was sedated and stabilized. The damage is too great to save the eye as a piece of buckshot went directly into his iris causing an iris prolapse.

Orion will have his eye removed and reconstructive surgery around the eye performed. A sample of tissue in the wound will be cultured due to this being such a dirty wound.

The second shot hit his front left leg with buckshot spray is throughout. Amputation is a possibility as he is completely lame in that leg.

This boy is being kept comfortable. He is on IV pain medication, antibiotics, and fluids. The coward who did this will most likely go unpunished as he was found as a stray.


UPDATE 

The first picture shows Orion post op. The other two pictures were before the surgery. His eye was removed and surrounding tissue was repaired. He is on IV pain medication, antibiotics, and fluids. We are hoping with time Orion will start to put weight on his leg. He is still at Blue Pearl in recovery.We are so thankful we were able to say yes to Orion. He needed our help so bad.

The cost of Orion’s emergency care will be high and TAF needs your support. We have created the animal saving products you see below to help raise the funds to cover his eye removal, reconstructive surgery and 24 hour care.


UPDATE 3-6-19

Orion has suffered from multiple gunshot wounds. After extensive care from the arrow fund, Orion is now ready for his forever home!

The rescue is now taking adoption applications now! This bouncing, baby boy has personality plus and is so loving!

Look at his progress!!!

Orion was rescued with a gunshot wound to his eye and front leg. Sadly, his eye had to be removed and he needed a lot of physical therapy as well as laser treatments on his leg.

Orion just received medical clearance yesterday, so he is still at Bannon Woods. We would love to make his transition into his forever home very soon.

Orion is one of the happiest boys around. He loves to be with his person. He hops like a bunny when excited! Orion is a big fan of belly rubs and treats. He loves everyone and he is looking for his best friend.

Adoption applications are on our website at thearrowfund.org
