On Dec 18, Bennett was struck by a car in Soperton, Ga. While he laid in the road, a number of motorist just passed him by, not even stopping to see if this little fellow was alive or dead.
One woman, however, went to great lengths to get him out of the road and to safety. Nancy McDonald, assisted by the Treutlen Co. Sheriff's Dept., managed to get Bennett into her car and to her home, despite this fellow trying to bite her. Bennett was badly injured and was and in a lot of pain, causing him to be very defensive of anyone that came near him.
Bennett had two large gashes on his left side and his back was ripped open from the front to the back.
Bennett was taken to the vet on Dec 19, given x-rays and had his wounds stitched up. The vet determined that his pelvis had been completely severed and a main ligament in his left leg was torn. These injuries are causing him much pain. Surgery is not an option as these types of injuries require time to heal.
Bennett will have to remain at the vet's office while he recovers so he can receive special care. It's estimated that Bennett will require a month to 6 weeks of recovery time before he can be released.
The total cost of his care will cost $1,500. This includes his pain meds and any other needs he will have.
Donations can be made directly to the vet's office, through this Fundrazr or by going to SoCo's web page (www.socorescue.com) and using the Pay Pal "Donate" button.
