Ian was burned and left to die by an abuser!
This is one of those cases that just breaks our hearts. I don't know where to begin. This is urgent. Little Ian was burned and left to die! Today has been beyond emotional and his rescuers are having trouble coming up with the words to tell Ian’s story. They received a request to help this sweet boy and initially were told that he was hit by a car. That is NOT the case.
Ian was burned. Worse it was intentional done by the hands of evil humans. The extent of his injuries is immeasurable. He may lose his ear as the burns run deep into his flesh. His neck has been burned down to the cartilage and his back through the muscle. The fact that he survived is a miracle.
I don't know what kind of human does this to a dog but clearly not one that should be walking amongst us. Our only hope is that the authorities can locate and prosecute. For now we are working with our partners at IMAGINE Pet Rescue to save his life. They have rushed him to their ER Veterinary Partner and will require EXTENSIVE wound care spanning over months of treatment.
Cindy McManus, Founder/ IMAGINE Pet Rescue, said, “Why you ask would we take on a dog like this? Because this is what we do, with YOUR help. Please find it in your heart to donate to help us help Ian. He deserves a chance at knowing that not all humans are evil.”
IMAGINE Pet Rescue is a licensed Non Profit Organization and rely solely on donations to continue their life-saving work. They cannot do this without you.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with IPR to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save this innocent victim. With your help they can save him from this unthinkable abuse and neglect. Everything from a tee to a bracelet can help this baby heal both mentally and physically.
UPDATE 7-22-17: His wounds are slowly healing little by little.Sadly doctors could not save Ian's ear. He went through his 3rd surgery today in 6 days. His ear had now been amputated and his wounds redressed. Thank you to everyone that has purchased shirts, shared and prayed for this sweet boy. Please continue to share his story and support Ian if you can as he will require many more surgeries. We are so very close to our goal. You can support Ian one shirt, hoodie, tote or bracelet at a time. Check them out below.
