It is with a great deal of sadness and a very heavy heart that we tell you, this afternoon Trooper passed away. We know so many of you were praying for his recovery and we cannot say how truly sorry we are that none of us will be able to watch him find a new family and new life.

Although he received the best care possible and seemed to be making great strides, his injuries were more than his body could handle. We are especially saddened for his foster family who had quickly become attached to Trooper and we were with him when he passed.

Our only comfort is that because of you, Animal Medical Center of Midwest City and the amazing woman who rescued him, we were able to give him a chance. Perhaps that wonderful place where dogs go to wait for those that love them needed a special dog and Trooper was chosen.

From all of us at The Bella Foundation SPCA and on behalf of Trooper, thank you for allowing us to try and save this wonderful dog. The fight for dogs like Trooper will go on and this incident only strengthens our resolve to make sure all the Troopers get the care they need.

Run free big boy on legs that are once again perfect......

Trooper's owners have been located. However, because of his extensive recovery they feel they are not equipped to give him the care he needs over the next several weeks and have elected to release ownership of Trooper to The Bella Foundation SPCA.

We are currently searching for a Foster Family that can help Trooper during his recovery and can ensure he gets the tender loving care he needs.

This will not be an easy task. Trooper had MAJORY surgery on his back hips and will need lots of love, support, and care during this time. While he is recovering he would do best in a quiet home with possibly one other dog. Playing in the yard is still a long way off but IS on the horizon.

The Bella Foundation will be entirely responsible for his veterinary expense and will ensure his new foster family has all the tools needed to see Trooper through this.

If you would like to foster Trooper and help him start a new life please visit http://www.thebellafoundation.org/foster

We cannot thank you enough for what you have done for Trooper. Our original goal of $2700 has been exceeded tremendously but so have the costs of Trooper's surgeries. Thanks to you however, we can still fund his current bill.

Trooper is resting tonight at the veterinary clinic that performed his surgery and will be with them for the remainder of the week. He has a long road of recovery ahead of him but he is strong and has a will to live.

For now we have ended the campaign for funding. Thank you so much for supporting Trooper and The Bella Foundation.

This morning a dog was found by a good samaritan on the side of I-40 between McCloud and Harrah in Oklahoma. He had been hit by a car and was badly injured. She is calling him Trooper and these are her words.



“This is a bit of a unique situation but hopefully you have had dealings with apparently what they are labeling as a good Samaritan, I am simply an animal lover to say the least. I was heading back to Arkansas to report for duty and as I was driving I found a German Shepherd off of I-40E between Harrah and Mcloud exit mile marker 174 that had apparently been hit. He was hurt and the temperature outside was dropping, so with assistance of some other motorist I flagged down, we loaded him in the vehicle and I took him to an Emergency Vet clinic I am familiar with. I fully expected this pup had a broken back or a terrible injury that would end up with me having to say he needs to be euthanized, that in and of itself broke my heart but I simply couldn’t leave him out there in pain on the highway to freeze to death and suffer.“



The Bella Foundation and Safe Haven Animal Rescue are partnering to save Trooper and asking fans from both groups to PLEASE help us raise the funds to make Trooper well. Trooper is being transported now to Animal Medical Center in Midwest City and will undergo surgery to fix his legs. We are authorizing the surgery on a leap of faith and hope our fans will once again show how amazing they are when it comes to animals in need.

We are searching for Trooper's owners and hope they can be found. If not, we will need a foster for Trooper where he can recover from his surgery and eventually find a new home.

I am more than happy to help with Trooper's recovery. I pray he finds a loving and caring family (or his own family) soon. The soldier who stopped and helped him certainly has earned her wings in so many ways! Thank you for serving our country and thank you for stopping to help an animal in need of immediate care.
