Pinto was a victim of a hit and run.
Pinto was hit by a car and is severely injured. No one stopped to help and the driver of the car that hit him sped away. To say he needs your help is an understatement. He was left in this condition for hours while he dragged his leg behind him trying to get off the road.
STILL NO ONE stopped, NO ONE Cared about Pinto until finally a Good Samaritan came to the rescue to comfort him. Even in all the pain Pinto was in he still tries to give kisses.
He was rushed to the Emergency Hospital late yesterday evening after Rescue Dogs Rock stepped up to save him. Pinto sustained a severely fractured pelvis and left leg. X-rays taken at the ER show a shattered pelvis and broken leg on the left side. An orthopedic surgeon has been called into the ER to review the radiographs and formulate a plan for surgery.
Pinto is stable now after 12 hours of fluids and intravenous medication. He has so many cuts and abrasions including a cut lip that are all infected and raging. Sadly some of his additional injuries are old and from his past , most likely from living on the streets being abused. His medical care and surgery will be several thousand dollars. We want to give Pinto the very best medical care but we really need your help to do so!
