Hi folks! That boy is Dag, and he was found by my husband at his workplace. As you can see, after wariness at first, he was super happy to receive a little love- but Dag is in sore need of help- he’s starving, and has an injured back leg that needs medical attention right away. We’re trying to contact local shelters, but sadly these places are always full since we live in an area where, unfortunately, pets are often considered disposable. 

We don’t know his story yet, but our immediate concernis getting him the help he needs- the rest can be sorted out as we go along, like getting him scanned for a microchip and maybe finding his owners.

I’ve set the goal at $2k simply because there is concern that his injured rear leg may need to come off, but we won’t know until he’s examined- and he’s clearly going to need some long term care. In the end, anything that can be donated is a benefit, and if we end up with more than what the actual costs are, the remainder will be donatedto our local non-profit shelter, because poor Dag here isn’t the only abandoned pet that needs help.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, by us and by Dag!

Hi, all! Just to give a little update, Dag is doing pretty good, though he and the Pooch Prime, Boomer, are currently working out who fits where, while the cats are just super offended Dag keeps wanting to lick them in the face. We’ve talked to the vet, and it looks like the surgery to fix his hip will possibly be in the $1000.00 range, not including the preliminary visit for X-rays and such- so I’m thinking that the operation and post op care will likely be around $1500, all said and done.

We’re committed to making sure it gets done, and we thank all of you who have donated!

We were able to get Dag to the vet this afternoon for a preliminary checkup. Looks like his hip was dislocated, and left like that for some time, given how the muscles in that leg have atrophied. He still definitely needs surgery, but the good news is that he could possibly regain full use of his leg in time.

We are currently in the process of contacting the various shelters and seeking folks to foster him- which may very likely end up being us, so long as we can get everyone introduced and getting along.

We will be taking Dag to https://cherokeeanimalcare.com/ if people who wish to donate would be more comfortable contacting the veterinarian directly.
