NO NEED TO DONATE NOW!!
Smiley has quite a story to tell!! He is a junk yard dog (aka Beautiful Boxer mix!!) that until yesterday, lived around an industrial workshop in San Antonio. Smiley has survived several vicious attacks from the other street dogs in the area (bleeding, battered and bruised each time), a snake bite that made him swell up and almost die, and two weeks ago someone decided to SHOOT him in the mouth, tearing up his tongue and leaving his teeth hanging. A man named Todd who worked at the industrial site could not bear it and contacted me to try and find help. I got in contact with people I know at ACS to bring Smiley there with Todd as his foster.
Todd said he tried to load Smiley up in the company truck to get him to ACS but then he said his boss told him he would be fired if he put Smiley in his car seat. Not so nice words were exchanged and true to his word, Todd said he was fired.
Long story short Todd got Smiley to ACS in his own vehicle and offered to foster if they could patch him up, but it turns out Smiley's injuries are beyond what the ACS on staff vet can do. Smiley has a very substantial hole in his hard pallet going up into his nasal cavity. ACS is kindly working with us to get a low cost outside vet to come in and repair Smiley's mouth but no outside vet is doing this for free so we have to come up with some funds first. OH and did I mention Smiley is HW+, too???
Surgery is estimated to be somewhere around $600 or more and then he needs HW treatment, too!! Todd could not afford this before and surely can't now that he has been fired. This was not even his dog...he lost his job trying to do the right thing!
PLEASE help us help Smiley and Todd!! It would be extremely unfair for this poor dog to be euthanized after all the challenges he has overcome and for Todd to lose Smiley after losing his own job to save him!!
ACS has Smiley on antibiotics and pain meds right now but we cannot fix his mouth or get him treated for HW until funds are raised. Thank you for any amount you can give!!
