Help Victim of Dog Attack

$3,295 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 26 people in 10 months
Created August 17, 2018
My brother was viscously attacked by a ferocious dog on July 27, 2018.  Since that time, he has been unable to work.  The dog was attacking him for close to four minutes.  His life was saved by the graciousness of two men walking by who pulled him over the fence.  The dog was still attached to his leg until one of the men was able to put a stick in the dog's mouth.  My brother has wounds, several are very deep and wide, to his hand, both calves, and his thigh.    

The wounds required numerous trips to the hospital for treatment.  The owner's of the dog have concealed him somewhere.  Because there is no record of a current rabies vaccination for the dog, my brother had to start the rabies protocol this week.  Now, the wounds on his legs are infected, and he has to continue again bandage both legs, which continues to interfere with his ability to work.  He is self-employed, so has had no income for nearly a month.  In addition to lost income, he has had out of pocket medical expenses for bandages, ointments, prescriptions, and doctor's visits.  He may have to be hospitalized if these wounds don't heal.  

The owners of the dog are renting the property where the attack occurred, and do not have renter's insurance, so there aren't any civil remedies available to him.  Also, the dog owners have shown no remorse to my brother and one of them actually said, "I hope he enjoys the shots in his stomach," meaning the rabies shots.  

Please help him cover some of his lost income and medical expenses.  All donations, no matter how small, will help.

It's been four weeks since the dog attacked my brother. Yesterday, he finally received good news that the wounds are no longer infected and there is no damage to muscles or blood flow. I want to again thank everyone who helped him get through this ordeal and lift a major stressor for him by helping with the co-pays and other expenses because he has been unable to work. I am hoping he can return to work next week, probably on a limited basis though. As far as the goal of $20,000.00, I never expected to reach that or that he would need that much, but GoFundMe requires a goal limited. Your kindness and graciousness is truly appreciated by Mark and his family. Thanks again.
