Waffles has 4 broken legs.
We have created this campaign to help raise the funds needed to save a dog with 4 broken legs!
This is a book definition of a rescue nightmare. I don’t even know where to begin. Waffles was found on the side of the highway with 4 broken legs we are told.2 young men took him home overnight and brought him to a small local vet clinic where nothing could be done for a trauma this severe.
He is painful, broken all over and has open wounds. The 2 young men were advised by the vet to drop him off at the shelter so that the shelter could reach out to rescues. Our partners at Second Chance Animal Rescue were asked by the shelter to help 2 days ago. This is a very sad thought that Waffles sat in pain for so long.
Second Chance Rescue NYC rushed Waffles to their emergency vet. With an orthopedics case like this it will cost rescuers at least $8,000. Who knows what internal damage he has, only a specialty center can adequately help him. He will require several immediate diagnostics and surgeries. Doctors believe he was hit by a car over a week ago.
SCR NYC is the only group that can take on a high needs case like this. We need to raise funds now to help their team. Despite it all Waffles is a very sweet and gentle soul. He has been out on his own for a very long time and that all changes today.
UPDATE: Left for dead 2-3 months ago. Waffles remains at the Specialty Vet Center and he is making progress, he is eating well and very inquisitive about his surroundings but still worried. Waffles is now a Tripod and also healing from the surgery done on one of his back legs. There might be a feeling of raw loss for this baby, but soon it will be a celebration. He fought to live for 2-3 months gravely injured on the side of the highway for months, he DESERVES TO BE HERE- He is owed and we are going to make sure what he is owed is paid in FULL. For now he will rest through the weekend, alive, safe and loved at Blue Pearl.
We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue NYC to help raise the funds they need to save Waffles. To help save her please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. With every purchase you can help us cover her life saving emergency care.
