Sparrow was hit very hard, and it caused severe damage.
We have just received an urgent call for help from a partner, Second Chance Rescue NYC. This poor angel was just brought in off the field truck, found laying on someone's front lawn. He was crying in pain. He is a male dog, who has received blunt force trauma to his head, hard enough to make one of his eyes pop out of its socket. He is also bleeding from his jaw, and we don't know if he has sustained any head fractures or brain damage yet. He has been rushed to the Emergency Hospital.
SCR told us, “We are so so heartbroken that he is in so much pain, and we have accepted him into rescue, and will do everything we can for him to make this pain go away.”
The blunt force trauma caused severe injuries to his jaw and shoulder. Thankfully there does not seem to be any brain damage, and neurologically he is functioning well. Unfortunately, from the force his jaw is broken in several places, and he will need surgery to repair the breaks. His shoulder is fractured as well, but he does not require surgery on that, thankfully. His damaged eye is also being removed when he has his surgery to repair his jaw. There was nothing doctors can do to save the eye.
This poor boy was hit very hard, and it caused severe damage. The surgery to repair his jaw will be costly and we are grateful for the support. Sparrow will remain hospitalized indefinitely so he can receive his surgery and heal. The hospital staff is amazed at how sweet and loving he remains through this all, considering the amount of pain that he is in.
We have created this campaign page to help us raise funds needed for Sparrow’s care. Everything you see here from a t-shirt, tote bag, hoodie or bracelet is dedicated to helping give Sparrow the best care possible and a chance to live a life pain free and full of love. Will you help him?
