Sparky is a 4-ish  year old, spunky, fun-loving, lovable, handsome, boy. Sparky's previous life was not good. A little over a year ago, on a cold and snowy night, Sparky was found, abandoned, in a crate in Northeast, D.C. He was little more than a pile of skin and bones, lying in a giant puddle of urine and feces, and barely alive.
Lucky he was take to and care for by the medical staff at Human Rescue Alliance. His internal body temperature was too low to even register on a thermometer. He required intense medical care. Heat support, IV fluids to rehabilitate him from shock, and various blood tests to measure his blood sugar, level of anemia, and level of dehydration. No one knew if Sparky would even make it through the night. The next morning, Sparky finally had a “readable” body temperature and stood on his own for the first time since he was found! He received around-the-clock care for two straight days, followed by seven more on an intensive re-feeding diet and TLC regimen.
Sparky then came to American Bulldog Rescue to continue recover, grow stronger, get all the love he could handle. Sparky was doing amazing. Then came a devastating blow. He was having rectal bleeding. We hoped for the best. He had been through enough! But, sadly poor Sparky has rectal carcinoma. He will have to undergo surgery to have the tumor and some surrounding tissue removed, 4 rounds of chemotherapy and of course, there are labs, diagnostics, office and follow-up visits. This bill is a big hit for a non-profit, rescue. We need your help to save Sparky! In total the cost is estimated to be $3,000-$4,500.
Sparky is way too young for us to give up on him now! He has been through so much and fought to live and now this! Its not fair! Let's come together and fight with Sparky again! Please share his fundraiser and donate. Every donation, no matter what size, means life to us! Remember, we are 501(c)3 charitable organization, so your donation is tax deductible.
