A Good Samaritan found this Shepard in Madera (March 30th, 2018) on rd 30 1/2 and Ave 11... not far from the community college. I was able to pick him up soon after and rushed him to the vet. He has scabies, need his tail amputated, skin and bones, and (after we left the vet) I noticed his back legs look injured. I am getting him the vet care he needs but need the communities help to cover his vet bills. The first trip to the vet was $539.26. That doesn’t include having his tail amputated or what’s going on with his back legs. He will need a lot of TLC but I can’t wait to see him healthy again. This dog is only a year old and already looks like he is 10.

Update after 2nd vet visit: we took X-rays and found out he has a fractured pelvis. Vet is going to do a FHO on the worst hip for now. He also is a cryptorchid so to fix him it will cost more.

Update: king gained enough weight for surgery. He had a FHO, tail amputation, and crip neuter. He will go in soon to get staples out. He is doing really good.

A little bit about me: My name is Megan Bowe, I live in Madera, California. I am the person financially responsible for caring for King. I rescue other dogs as well, I am working on becoming a non profit rescue but still in the paperwork process. All donations go directly into a bank account I set up for the rescue animals in my care. Donations given through gofundme will be set aside for King and if he has any money left over once he is healed it will be used for any other animals we are caring for in the future.
