Peter was desperately trying to save his dog's life and was caught in heavy rush hour traffic. While on West Central Street he illegally passed several vehicles, one being a Natick Police Officer. Natick Police put on their lights, but Peter was in a life or death situation and kept going. He finally pulled over and was arrested on the spot. He was yelling at the officers that his dog was hit. The police saw the blood all over Peter and looked in the back seat. There they discovered Thor who lay lifeless. The police took Peter's truck and rushed Thor to the Emergency room at IVG MetroWest in Natick.
The police did recognize that there were extenuating circumstances that led him to drive in that fashion and put a number of people at risk. At his hearing the following day, Peter was ordered to complete a traffic safety course in the next two months.
Thor had to be transported by IVG MetroWest to Tufts Medical in Grafton where he miraculously is still alive. He has three broken legs. Compound breaks to both of his front two legs and a shattered femur. In addition, he has facial injuries along with numerous other injuries. Thor's will to survive is amazing, he has the heart of a lion!
Estimated medical cost is $
22, 000 which does not include months of recovery ahead.
Peter & Eunice have no children other than Thor. It's their baby. It's going to be a long road to recovery for him and the family.
We would be so grateful for any help you may be able to give.
