Attacked in Prospect Park

Moose did not survive through surgery. I'm absolutely shattered, angry, and heartbroken. Moose was my life and my world. I am working hard through incredible grief to respond to everyone—each and every single message helps get me through this time. Please know I appreciate each and every donation and all the incredibly kind, comforting words.

He is at the emergency veterinarians getting stabilized because he appears septic. The cost of the surgery alone is almost $14,000 before they know what's going on inside. 

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Early Wednesday morning, my dog and I were attacked by a man between the Picnic House and the Villa in Prospect Park. 

Thank god for a nearby woman that screamed and bikers that jumped off their bikes. My dog, Moose, had to be rushed to the vet for emergency dental surgery and x-rays to check for damage to his jaw. One tooth was completely shattered and had to be extracted, the tooth next to it was chipped.

 A massive thanks to Dr. Silverman, his son, Dr. Nick Silverman, and the entire Prospect Park Animal Clinic staff, who took him in immediately.

The experience was genuinely horrific. We live across from the park and consider it our second home and a sanctuary. I will spend all my time snuggling my pup and giving him all the (soft) treats. Any and all donations towards Moose's vet bills are incredibly appreciated.
