Help Blue Run Again!

On the afternoon of January 29th, Blue The Dog was hit by a car and rushed to the closest vet.  The vet quickly assessed Blue and advised he be taken to the emergency animal hospital.  He is now at the emergency hospital fighting for his life.

Blue remains in critical condition and the doctors are doing everything they can to keep him stable.  He’s heavily sedated so he can’t feel any pain, but continues to perk up anytime Richard or his foster Mom, Geri come into the room for a visit.  His tail wag and smile give us hope! 

Blue has internal bleeding, most likely from the liver.  His lungs are damaged and severely bruised.  His right hind leg has multiple fractures including significant joint damage.  It is still unclear if the doctors will be able to save his leg.   The top priority is to get Blue stable and from there, the doctors will advise on a course of action.

As you can imagine, Richard is absolutely devastated.  If you know Richard, you’ve either met or heard of Blue The Dog.  To say that these two have a special bond would be an understatement.  Richard needs all the support and love he can get so he can focus on getting Blue through what is sure to be the biggest battle of his life. 

As of Tuesday morning, January 30th, the medical bills for Blue have totalled up to over $7,000  and will continue to grow as Blue continues to fight for his life. 
***(Update: Blue's medical bills are $11,180 as of Friday, February 2nd)***

Richard isn’t one to ask for help, but right now he needs his village to help lift him up.   ANYTHING you can do to support these two would be greatly appreciated.

We were able to get the information of the driver who struck Blue and we are in the process of contacting them.  We will post any updates as they become available.
