Vet Bill for Blue

As many of you know, Blue went mising for about a week and when he returned home he had a multitude of problems due to animal cruelty.  Blue was taken to the vet and once at the vet we were told he would lose his eye, his foot was severely broken and would need extensive surgery which would need to be performed in Birmingham.  Not to mention he had lost 30 pounds and his tail had been cut off.  It is hard to understand how a human could treat an animal this way.  The vet bills are just continuing to mount.  Our family is truly at a loss and would appreciate any and all help.  Your donations will go directly to pay Blue's vet bills.  We appreciate any amount large or small.  We are truly thankful for those that have already donated.  If you do not wish to donate via this page you are more than welcome to donate by calling the vet directly.  Bryant Drive Animal Hospital - 205-758-5520, just make reference; Blue - owners Blake and Cortney Herren.  Thank you so much for your love and support.

I thought I would share a little photo of Blue and give a little update to all of his supporters. Blue is doing great! His mom and dad just bought their first home and he loves his big fenced in backyard! He enjoyed a huge ham bone on Thanksgiving and afterwards enjoyed chilling on the couch with all of the family. Wishing each of you a very Merry Christmas and may each of you be blessed in the New Year.

Blue is still having a hard time. He is having horrible panic attacks when he is left home alone. He going to get fixed and hopefully they will put him on some anti-anxiety meds to help with the panic attacks. Pray for poor Blue and Cortney because she is sick and home alone because Blake is working out of town for the next 20 days. She has a lot on her plate right now. We appreciate your prayers.

Just a quick update for all of Blue's supporters. Blue is doing great! He is putting on weight and his leg is healing really well. Unfortunately Blue has figured out how to chew off his cast, so he will be getting a new cast on Tuesday at his next Vet visit. Thank you again for your support. We will keep you posted.

I just wanted to update everyone on Blue. He came through is surgery good yesterday but had to return to the vet shortly after he returned home. His tail continued to bleed and they had to find a better cone to place around his neck to keep him from licking his tail. He looks horrible so I can't post his pictures here due to gofundme guidelines. We are still accepting donations here via gofundme because Blue will possibly have to be sent to Birmingham for more extensive surgery on his foot. We hope the splint does the job and if so all extra donations will be donated to a local 501c animal rescue organization that specializes in animal cruelty cases. We will also add a portion to the $100 reward for information that leads to an arrest of the person or persons responsible for this senseless act of animal cruelty. Our family is truly grateful for each and every single donation that has been made. We hope once Blue is healthier we can hold an event in Blue's honor and have all of his donors and friends come out and meet him. Blue has become somewhat of a celebrity with all of the media coverage and we think he is eating it up! ;) We will continue to keep everyone posted.

Sincerely,
Doreena Mink (Blake's Mother & Blue's MeMe)

I saw your story on Fox 6 this morning and came close to crying. I have a Doberman named Blue so it hit close to home for me. I know it's not much but I know every little bit helps. I wish Blue a full recovery and I hope the responsible party is found out and charged before they do something like this again.
