Woody was given a 50/50 chance at survival.
This is when animal control comes together to try and save the life of an innocent victim. Today, rescuers received this photo and a text asking "Can you help this one?" from an animal control officer. This boy was found off a rural road in Pike County, AL - hidden in the woods barely alive. Troy Animal Project couldn't refuse. He was at Troy Pound. Volunteers immediately arranged for transport to Jones Animal Clinic and life saving care. Thankfully doctors and staff were waiting and sprung into action.
He arrived at the vet. Severely emaciated. Pressure sores from his bones pressing against his skin. Horrible infection in the deep wounds on his hind quarters. High Heartworm positive. Covered in fleas from head to toe which you can see falling off of him in the video. Its bad guys. But through the pain and abuse this sweet and giving puppy is full of kisses. Absolutely heartbreaking.
Volunteers named him Woody. They were given a 50/50 chance of survival. Despite it all T.A.P. and their medical team will not stop until he is stable. He has so many health issues we just don't know. We are going to give him our all. We promise you that!
UPDATE 1-18-17: Woody is healing. This poor thing is so tough. His pressure sores are healing nicely and he is gaining weight slowly. We are hoping that he will be up to pare in the next couple of weeks. This journey will not be easy for Woody but with your help I know he can make it through this. Thank you to everyone who has sent prayers and donations to help with his care!
Melissa of T.A.P. stated, “Woody will have extensive vet bills. He desperately needs your help!” Now we are asking for the publics help. Every Woody product here from a t-shirt to a hoodie and bracelet all trigger a life saving donation to help Woody and T.A.P. With your help we can save this innocent victim.
