Buster is a wonderful, dog friendly 1 year old Chocolate Lab/Boxer mix currently on the euthanasia list at Chesterfield Animal Services, scheduled to die on Wednesday April 23rd. His updated heartworm test now shows him to be heartworm positive which has brought his chances to be rescued down to almost zero. On top of that, Buster is injured and has septic arthritis. He was taken to the veterinary clinic today when it was noticed by the shelter staff that his back foot/paw was swollen and he was limping severely. X rays were taken and it turns out that poor Buster has inflammation of the joint that is commonly seen after a traumatic injury (the vet thinks he has been hit by a car) that has exposed the joint to contamination by environmental microorganisms.

In short, Buster needs your help to make it out of the shelter alive - Funding to get the heartworm treatment he needs to find his forever home and funding to handle his leg injury. Please help this sweet boy, he is a shelter favorite but he will die this Wednesday without donations to cover his medical costs. Dog4U, Inc., a no kill non-profit animal rescue, will take on the care for Buster for the next 6 months until his heartworm treatment is finished and he can go north to find his forever home with one of our New England rescue partners but we need your help to make this happen. Please consider making a tax deductible donation today. If you can't donate, please share to save this sweet boy. Thank you!
