Russell was rescued on 10/11/2013 from an animal control facility in North Carolina. He had been at the facility for more than a month, but was infested with fleas and was severely lethargic. He could only stand for short periods of time and was underweight.
My sister Emily, a boxer lover, rescued Russell. I'm the media manager of Animal Rescue, Inc. in New Freedom, PA and am assisting her in raising funds to help Russell.
We hoped that, after receiving a much-needed medical evaluation, flea treatment, deworming and nutritious food, we would see a change in Russell, and so would start the beginning of his new, happy life.
However, today, one day after his rescue, Russell suffered a seizure and began walking in circles and staring straight ahead.
Russell was rushed to an Emergency Veterinary Clinic where he's receiving muscle-relaxing medications, fluids and barbiturates.
We have a dream for Russell, that this poor Boxer can have a better life where he is loved and receives the forever home he so truly deserves.
But we can't do that without your help.
Friends, Family and Animal Lovers of this Community -- please consider donating to help Russell. He's in dire need of a brain scan to determine if he has a brain tumor, or some other issue. The $3,000 we're asking for will cover his scan, blood work and any other unforeseen medical expenses.
Any amount will help. Russell needs you.
