Rooney was found underneath a TRAIN with horrific wounds.

 

This poor senior Coonhound was found underneath a TRAIN with horrific wounds. To make matters worse Rooney’s wounds are completely infested with maggot and rotting from the inside out. His gums are pure white indicating just how critical he is. Our partners at The Arrow Fund volunteers rushed to the train to save his life. Rooney needs your help! We have created this campaign page to help raise the funds T.A.F. needs to give him life saving care.

TAF volunteers rushed Rooney to their Emergency Vet. He was administered IV fluids while being transporting in the car to the hospital. Rooney is very critical. They arrived at the Emergency Clinic around 2:00 am this morning. First task was stabilizing Rooney to make sure he survives. He is on the highest pain medication to keep him comfortable and receiving 24 hour care. Vet staff and rescuers are doing everything medically possible to save his life. This will not be easy but with your help we know he can survive.

We have no idea how long this boy has been hiding under the train. Our guess is at least a week. It is unknown what happened to Rooney given that he was found as a stray but we can only imagine what horrors he has seen. Thank you for your support! Working together we CAN and DO make a difference in the lives of these innocent victims of severe abuse. Will you join us?

You can help by purchasing one of Rooney’s shirts, tanks or totes below. We have partnered with The Arrow Fund to create these animal saving products to raise the funds needed to save Rooney from his unbelievable wounds. With your help they can give him a new life full of love and pain free!


UPDATE 8-14-17: 

This truly is the stuff nightmares are made of .The maggot infestation and nests were unlike anything I have seen. Layers upon layers of maggots embedded in his skin. The Arrow Fund ended up having to shave this baby over a drain to try to get the majority of them off. His wounds are many and severe. Infection is present. Doctors are fighting hard to keep his temperature up. It has been 91.3 for most of the day, it is now at 94.5, still cold. He has a bair hugger on him to help him . A technician is assigned just to watch him 24 hours a day. 


UPDATE 8-19-17:

Today our heart sank when we were told that with all of the transfusions (2 blood and 3 plasma) and his blood levels looking better that Rooney should not be so flat and mentally inappropriate. He could lift his head and barely drink but would not eat or try to move . So it was determined that Rooney had suffered a blow to the head in addition to everything else . We were told they would do an advanced CT scan but would first try a drug called Mannitol that may help pull fluid off of the brain. Rooney is more active but is still unable to walk any distance. He can stand on his own but doctors still have to carry him outside. Having the bandages on and the urinary catheter in makes it difficult. Rooney thankfully did pass a large amount of rocks through his stool today. I can't imagine the pain this boy was in. 

Rooney still desperately needs your help. This kind of care takes alot of funding and we would appreciate all the help you can give. We have created Rooney's shirts bellow to help us raise the funds for his care.


UPDATE 11-5-17 ADOPTED!

To be able to post the adoption of Rooney is a miracle ! This boy was not expected to pull through and almost did not on so many occasions. Now Kelli Tegtmeier and Clay Marrillia have opened their homes to this amazing baby boy that we all love so much ! This is so exciting for all of us! Please share his story with everyone you know!
