Rusty came into the shelter after being shot and left for dead.

 

We have created this campaign to help raise the funds needed to save a dog who was shot!
 Rusty came to The Arrow Fund from Daviess County, Kentucky with a gunshot wound to the head. He has a gaping hole in his muzzle. Rusty needed to be stabilized through the night and surgery was planned as soon as he was able. He is just a baby and was so brutally maimed by man.

Rusty had surgery at Bannon Woods Veterinary Hospital and Dr. Adrienne Robertson was his surgeon. After being sedated, the long process of debridement of the tissue began. His skull was literally riddles Gunshot wounds are especially dirty wounds. Infection was already present here so it was important to clean the area as well it could be done.

Then reconstruction began. The muzzle, nasal cavity, etc was recreated and draining tubes were inserted. Then this boy was sewn back together. Further Infection is still a real concern. Rusty also had metal imbedded in his gut, causing blood in his stool and pain.

This is just the beginning of a very long journey and many more surgeries to rebuild the damage someone inflicted on Rusty. We need your help raising the funds to cover the reconstructive surgeries. These will cost The Arrow Fund over $10,000.00 and that is not the type of funds rescuers have.

To help save Rusty please consider purchasing one of his shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. With every purchase you can help us cover his life saving surgeries and save his life.


Update 10-25-18: 

Rusty has been released from Bannon Woods Veterinary Hospital into his foster home, with the Aguiar family, to continue his recovery from a gunshot wound to the face.

Rusty had 4 reconstructive surgeries to repair the communication between his soft palate and his sinus cavity, along with the placement of mesh. After the mesh allowed for some skin regrowth in the roof of his mouth, he underwent what should be the last procedure to make a skin-to-skin repair.

Rusty is eating like a champ and is up to 55 pounds! He continues to be on twice daily antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and nose spray. He is being showered with love and is learning to trust again. Rusty grows stronger each day while he runs and plays with his foster brothers and sister, including The Arrow Fund's blind lab mix puppy, Rocky.Rusty will be looking for his forever home shortly. If interested please contact The Arrow Fund at https://thearrowfund.org/


Update 3-2-19

Rusty came to The Arrow Fund in August with a large gunshot wound to his face. It was a miracle he survived. Now, after 7 months and 7 surgeries, The Arrow Fund is(cautiously) optimistic that their boy has a happy, normal life as a dog ahead!

Last week, Dr. Applewhite sedated Rusty to get a good look at how Rusty is healing after he underwent a 4.5 hour surgery in mid-January to remove devitalized (dead) bone, close a nasal fistula and oronasal fistula (opening between the bone on the roof of your mouth and your nose). He operated from the top of Rusty's nose and downward, then from inside his mouth and upward. And Dr. Applewhite couldn't be more pleased with the results of Rusty's surgery!

After all he went through, Rusty has colitis (inflammation of his bowels) and is currently on Metronidazole for this. We pray this is his last hurdle to overcome!

Rusty’s care has been lengthy and costly. Please continue to support The Arrow fund with donations and animal-saving purchases.
