Funds for Mackie Pit Bull Attacked

$300 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 6 people in 8 months
Towson, Maryland- On Friday 01/19/2018 around 7:40p-8:00p my wife and daughter were going on a regular nightly walk with our mini schnauzers Mackie and Rosie while I was on my way back home from work. Shortly after their walk, two unleashed pit bulls approached them and attacked them. Neither my wife and daughter were bit. Except, for my wife some scratches to her body and soreness on her arms and body due to the struggle. Unfortunately, our dog, Mackie is in bad condition with deep wounds from the bites that damaged his muscles and nerves and dislocated his hip with a 50% chance of full recovery.

Our dog was rushed to the Pet-Er and has been hospitalized since Friday night and his bill is already at $4,100. The owner of the pit bulls who is a single parent working two jobs and going to school has been paying Mackie's medical bills, however, we are trying to find other solutions to alleviate the costly treatment.

It is an unexpected expense that we didn't cause. We are asking for any monetary donations, so that we can continue our dog's treatment. Per the Pet-Er doctor Mackie will be required to stay hospitalized for a few more days to determine how serious his health condition is, which can cost at least $1,000 daily and further treatment for his wounds and hip. The money not used will be donated forward to an animal rescue and care center which name will be announce on my Facebook with visuals of me giving a check to the rescue center and thanking everyone of you for your support.

Our dogs have been with us since puppies for about 7 years. They are part of our family and everyday life, growing together side by side with our children, who are 12 and 8 years old. Our dogs are the ones that when we come home are so excited to see us and they have been the most loyal to us.

We are a working family just like every American who is trying to make it. And we are in an unfortunate situation that is requiring the help of others. Every little bit that you can contribute from $1 or more if you can help. We will be forever grateful.

Either you can or can't help financially please help by sharing this link with family and friends.

God Bless you all!

Unfortunately Mackie was put to sleep today 01/23/2018 at 2:40p. We are heartbroken right now. Mackie needed 24/7 attention and neither the owner of the pit bulls nor us could afford it. He was in so much pain and it was hard seeing him like that. We had him since he was a puppy. The money collected was used to put him to sleep.

Thank you all for your support! God Bless you all!

Thank you everyone who has donated. Mackie is still in full recovery mode. We were able to transfer him over from the Pet-Er to an Animal Hospital. Still a long way to go and more treatment to get done. Please even a small donation of $1 help to the cause.
God Bless you all!

On Friday 01/19/2018 my wife and daughter were going on a regular nightly walk with our mini schnauzers Mackie and Rosie. Shortly, two unleashed pit bulls approached them and attacked them. Neither my wife and daughter were hurt. Except, for my wife suffering a minor bite and a few scratches and just soreness in the neck and arm area. Unfortunately, our baby dog,  Mackie was brutally hurt with deep wounds from the bites that damaged his muscles  and  dislocated his hip.  

This incident has resulted with a hospitalization and treatment  that continues to get costly. Our dog has been hospitalized since Friday night and his bill is already at $4,100. The owner of the pit bulls who is a single parent working two jobs and going to school has been paying Mackie's medical bills, however, we are trying to cooperate with each other and find solutions to alleviate the costly treatment.

We love animals and understand that accidents happen all the time. We are asking for any monetary donations, so that we can continue Mackie's treatment. He will require to stay hospitalized for a few more days, which can cost up $1,000 daily and further treatment for his hip.

Our dogs have been with us since puppies for about 7 years. They are part of our family and everyday life, growing together side by side with our children, who are 12 and 8 years old. Our dogs are the ones that when we come home are so excited to see us and they have been the most loyal to us.

We have never asked for any types of assistance for our dogs. We are a working family just like every American who is trying to make it. And  we are in an unfortunate situation that is requiring the help of others.  Every little bit that you can contribute will help. We thank you and appreciate that you also care and love animals and we will be forever grateful.
