After a barbeque we hosted on Saturday, June 3rd, a dear friend and her son and dog, Maddrox, were walking to their car to leave the park. 3 very aggressive dogs in a yard next to the park ran up to the fence, pushing between the fence bars, and grabbed Maddrox, a 12 year old Rottweiler, into their yard.  He was injured very seriously and was rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital.  After hours of surgery, he was kept overnight for observation.  He survived his injuries and was allowed to go home.  Needless to say, this young family had to pay $3,000 while at the hospital and additional bills will come to over $1,000.  If you can help, anything will be most appreciated.  Thank you!

From Cherie,

Just an update on Maddrox: He saw the vet today and they said everything is looking great as far as infection wise. There is one spot along the main cut on the neck that looks iffy, but we are going to give a few more days to see if it starts to caught up in the healing! Everyones generosity and positive messages are helping our family through this time of need. Also, my son woke up and walked right past Maddrox without being fearful! It's a big step in our book!!

Ugh - been doing research regarding suing the owners for your damages. Unfortunately there is not yet a law on the Colorado books that would allow you to sue for any more than the "fair market value" of a pet. One was introduced back in 2013 but does not appear to have passed. Call me and we can talk about it. Unfortunately this gofundme is probably the only way to re-coop any money.

I wish I could give more, but vet techs don't earn much. I helped care for this sweet boy and he's worth every penny :-)
