Freckles arrived at Forget Me Not Animal Shelter as a neglect impound, in pain from multiple untreated injuries and conditions. He has since been signed over to the shelter so he can begin to heal, and then find the loving forever home he deserves!

We can treat some of Freckles' ailments here - his severe ear infections are clearing up, a skin condition on his belly and abdomen is being soothed and treated, and we've already seen his ribs starting to become less pronounced.

Unfortunately, he arrived with two old and untreated wounds that will require attention by a veterinary specialist - that is why we need to ask for your help today.

Several months ago, Freckles lost an eye in a fight with a cougar. His owners did not bring him to the vet, and the eye has remained untreated. He urgently needs to have what remains of this blind eye removed, and all necrotic tissue cleaned out.

Freckles, blind in one eye

A couple of months after the cougar fight, Freckles was hit by a car, resulting in a broken leg. Again, he was left untreated, and now tries to get around as well as he can, but the leg either needs to be rebroken and reset, or amputated; his shoulder and leg muscles have atrophied, and the paw on that side has swollen and painful toes from being dragged and slapped on the ground for months:

In spite of his long-term pain and neglect, Freckles has a happy, sunny attitude with all his new friends at the shelter. To him, living at Forget Me Not is like a dream come true; he gets all the food he wants, many hugs and interactions with people every day, and even can snooze away in the office as the official "greeter" for part of each day. He is going to make a wonderful companion for a lucky adopter one day. His estimated age is 4 years, based on the condition of his teeth, so he has lots of great years ahead of him.

He does his best, wanting to play like the other dogs, but it's obvious his damaged leg and eye hurt him. We can't wait to remove the rest of his pain, and for that, we need your help.
