A Miracle for Milo
Help Save a Brave Rescued Companion in Need

Meet Milo, a courageous and beloved rescue dog, part Boxer with a beautiful brindle coat. Milo found himself in a tragic situation when he got caught in the crossfire of a neighbourhood shooting, sustaining a severe gunshot wound to the throat. Milo's resilience has touched the hearts of the medical team and his family, which includes two children—a loving 12-year-old and a precious new born baby.
The family is facing unexpected medical bills to ensure Milo receives the urgent care he needs. Your support can make a difference in Milo's road to recovery and bring peace to this loving household.
Every contribution, no matter the size, will help give Milo a second chance at a happy and healthy life.

Thank you for joining us in this effort to save Milo and support his wonderful family.

Details:
The intended target was a neighbour who, heartbreakingly, lost their life in this senseless act of violence. Unfortunately, Milo's home bore the brunt of the gunfire, leaving it riddled with bullet holes. The traumatic incident has not only left Milo fighting for his life but has also deepened the sorrow for the household, who have already experienced the loss of two beloved canine companions.

Clearly, the family is caught off guard with this unexpected crisis, making it a financial struggle to cover Milo's vet bills, which are already at $6,300. He desperately needs more medical treatment to survive, which will skyrocket the already surprise expense. Without the funds for the Veterinarian and Surgery Specialist, Milo's chance of survival is in jeopardy. Your support can make a significant difference in Milo's road to recovery and alleviate the financial burden on this loving household.

How your contribution will help Milo and his family:
Veterinarian hospital bills
Future medication & CT-Scans
Rehabilitation
Bullet proofing the doors and windows
Special Doggy treats for life


"Together, let's bring Milo back to his happy place!"

Why Milo is a Miracle:
Milo was already saved once as a pup, when this family found him as a rescue and brought him to a loving home, where they worked through his trauma.
Despite the odds, Milo is a miraculous survivor - defying the severity of his injuries - he still made his way to the newborn baby's side, after being shot in the same room where she was sleeping - the family believes he was aware of the danger around on that fatal morning.

Anyone with an animal knows the bond and unconditional love of a K9 companion.

The family is currently displaced, while evidence is gathered and bullets are removed by forensics. The thought of going back is daunting, although they recognize this is a rare occurrence, ideally the family would like to eventually move, as returning to the scene of the crime is triggering too much trauma for the young girl, and we are not yet sure how Milo will react, as he is still in hospital.

Thank you for taking the time to read about Milo's tragic day that brought us here to GoFundMe.

Blessings to all and stay safe
