The photos are graphic and hearbreaking and so his his story.... This sweet soul was brought to the shelter in this condition today as an owner surrender after being hit by a car.  The people who surrendered him said the injury happened early this AM, but the condition of the wounds tells a different story that it was much longer than that.

The shelter listed him as an urgent medical pull with not much time to find rescue as his condition was urgent.  The shelter did everything they could for him with the resources that they had, but they are not equipped to provide the kind of medical care this kind if injury requires.

The number of rescues who work with injured dogs is small, the number of rescues that work with injuries this severe is even smaller....us.  Nobody was coming for him, nobody has the community to support this kind of injury and the time and commitment it would take.  We were his only chance. 

The Pambulance headed south in rush hour traffic and got to the shelter where they carried the little boy we have named Tony Stark out to the truck on a towel gurney and gently placed him inside.  They immediately headed back north, en route to LeadER Animal Hospital where Dr. Spahn was aware they were en route and had the photos and what little medical information there was to share.

Tony Stark will need fluids, x-rays, bloodwork, significant wound care for a degloving injury and the hopes that the tissue around the wound has not become necrotic.  Somehow, he appears to be reasonably stable (breathing ok, alert but drugged) and we will know more about his condition later on tonight.

He needed someone, someone to not just drop him off and walk away in his hour of greatest need.  Will you be Tony's "someone" and help him have the chance he so deserves?
