Snoopy was suffering alone and covered in fire ants.
We are in complete shock, horror , and disbelief looking at this dog’s condition. What could possibly have inflicted these kind of injuries? Half of Snoopy's skin practically looks ripped off. His right eye is hanging out of his face and he can't move his legs. Is it possible that someone actually did this to him? Everyone is very upset about what Poor Snoopy has endured being left for dead on the road covered in fire ants.
This one year old dog is about to fight the biggest battle of his life, Snoopy is only a year old. Second Chance Rescue rushed Snoopy to the closest emergency vet for life saving care. He will require major reconstructive surgery, if he is able to survive this ordeal, he is in complete shock. We do not know the status of his motor functions, he is in critical condition and his wounds are necrotic and becoming septic fast.
He is receiving 24/7 supportive care and stabilization to start and SCR volunteers are positive they will at least need to triage the bulging eye, Mri to see what's going on with his spine, major pain meds, and getting that horrible wound addressed ASAP. EVERYTHING is life threatening to him right now.
He is emaciated with his ribs protruding. We cannot bear to think what he has lived through. How much pain and suffering and neglect did he have to endure before he was found. We don't even want to think about it. He does not have anyone else. We are all he has right now. Please consider supporting the Lifesaving care Snoopy is receiving right now. His trauma is overwhelming but we have made a promise to not stop until he is pain free.This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with SCR to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to save Snoopy. With your help they can save him and give him a new life full of love and pain free.
UPDATE : We are devastated to announce that Snoopy has crossed over the rainbow bridge. His injuries were far beyond repair, he went septic and his blood pressure dropped and there was not even the opportunity for surgery. These photos are the last pictures we had of our boy upon arrival to the ER Thursday. They had immediately stabilized him and had an emergency consult with neuro and surgery at the same time. Snoopy had a completely severed spine, no use of his back legs, incontinent, a shattered pelvis, air in his lungs, his left eye bulging out of his socket, a broken femur, and 40% of his skin missing from his body. We had to try to give him a chance and at least give him the opportunity to get a full picture at a specialty center to see if we could help him. Sadly, that was not his creators plan. He is now in a place where no one will ever hurt him again
