Takoda is a homeless dog shot in the face.
We have an urgent situation. This innocent baby was shot in the face! Our partners at Dallas Dog RRR received a heartbreaking call for help. This dog is homeless and has been living in a wooded area in a tent with his owner who is homeless.
They are part of a transient homeless population. There was a horrific incident the other day, and he was shot in the face. Yes, you read that right. Shot in the face by a coward. We do not have too many details, as this is being investigated by the cruelty department, but after he was shot, he was taken by animal control. We have partnered with DD RRR to create these animal saving tee and hoodies to raise the funds needed to save Takoda’s life. But we can’t do this without you.
The shelter reached out to DDRRR for assistance, to get this boy, who they are calling, Takoda, to a vet for immediate critical medical care. We are devastated by this. Doctors do not know the severity of the gunshot wound yet, or if he will lose his eye yet. Rescuers are awaiting word from the hospital.
UPDATE 5-12-17: We have a message from Takoda himself! "Hi everypawdy! Just wanted to stop by, say hello, and thank you for all the well wishes and support. I'm still kind of in shock that someone shot me in the face. If that person took a few seconds to meet me, he would have learned I don't have a mean bone in my body. But, some humans are unfortunately like that. Anyway, I'm healing up pretty well, but I had to have a small procedure to fix my neuter as I was starting to get an infection. So that wasn't pleasant. I go back to the vet soon and will update you on what they say."
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with Dallas Dog RRR to raise the donations needed to save Takoda’s life. Together we have created the Animal Saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed. Purchase yours today. We made a promise to Takoda and Dallas Dog RRR that we will not stop until he is pain free and on his way to a new life!
