Save Arthur

On Saturday April 14th 2018 ARP rescued a litter of puppies.  One puppy, who we named Arthur, was limping and very sick. He was itching badly and would not use his left hind leg. He was given a bath as all our puppies get when they first arrive and it was then that two large infected open wounds were found. We contacted our veterinary clinic and got him in quickly. Upon examination it was discovered he had a broken leg and that the two severely infected open wounds on the same leg were causing sepsis in this poor puppy, he also had mange and an upper respiratory infection as well. Due to the severity of the infection he was hospitalized for I.V antibiotics and kept in intensive care. Upon x-ray of his broken leg it was decided since it was broken through several growth plates and the infected wounds were on the same leg; it would be in his best interest and improve his overall health if his leg was amputated.

 His much needed care came at a high cost. He is responding well to the antibiotics and his mange and upper respiratory infection have been treated as well.  He has improved enough that he will be undergoing the amputation this Friday April 20th in hopes that the infected wounds and broken leg will no longer cause him pain or be a danger to his young life. Baby Arthur is a puppy and deserves a chance at life. We are doing our best to give that to him. But we can’t do this without your help. We are asking for your help in covering the cost of his much needed treatment. You can donate here on go fund me; or go to and donate to our PayPal account. In the notes please make it to Arthur’s medical coverage.29241564_15240809200_r.jpeg
