With days to go, Low Riders of the West Small Dog Rescue, rescued him from his pending death. He was taken to the Vet where he was given shots and a quick checkup. Griffin was now on his way to his warm foster home in Colorado. Upon arriving at his foster home he was welcomed with love and happiness. After just a couple hours, his foster mom noticed blood in his stool and recalled that transport said he was vomiting some the day before transport. His foster mom took him to her vet who recommended 24 hour care and hospitalization as he was starting to go downhill very quickly. The ER vet determined he had contracted parvo. For the next three days Griffin fought for his life and with medical attention and love from his foster mom, he was able to start recovering.
He is not fully healed and still needs additional medical attention.
Here comes the sad part, if it was not sad enough. When he was first taken to the vet, as sick as he was, the vet would not see him until a deposit of a large sum was given over. Now that he is doing better, the Veterinary Center would not release him until his medical bills were paid in full. They were unwilling to offer any kind of discount to our Rescue or even work with us on a payment plan. So his foster mom graciously put the entire amount on her credit card, which she’ll need to pay by the end of the month.
We are doing all we can to raise the funds through grants and our own pockets so we can pay his foster mom back, but we are still short.
Any goes a long way in helping Griffin continue to get the medical attention he needs and then find his furever home.
