Meet Watkins. He is an abandoned, critically ill puppy found in Grundy, Va. Buchanan Co. Humane Society and Appalachian Animal Health Clinic are taking care of him.
He is in critical condition and needs your support.
No contribution is too small!
Watkins in the news:
Have I mentioned we have a foster kitten? Watkins has met him and thankfully wasn't interested in putting him in Mocha's water bowl. The kitten is much quicker than my ability to lunge for my cell phone to get a picture of him with Watkins...but the two seem like they are going to be friends so I expect that a picture of them will be coming soon. Hope your Saturday is as exciting as ours!
Stephanie and Watkins"
I am the President of Buchanan Co. Humane Society who is in charge of Watkins' care. We are so very grateful to everyone for their support and prayers. I will post an update on his Facebook page in just a few minutes. Thanks to Lisa Jones for helping set up this page! Watkins and I both appreciate you ALL!
Stephanie, I don't have words to express how happy I am that people like you exist to help dogs such as Watkins, you are amazing. I follow Watkins progress everyday, Ive cried many times over him but your updates have also brought so much joy, I have donated and rounded up all my friends to do the same. Ive posted his beautiful face on my own basset hounds instagram page and spread his story to fellow basset owners, many of them have also donated. I will continue to donate for him and should he pull through I will keep on donating for his rehabilitation xx
I donated last week and am really saddened to see Watkins' condition deteriorating. As a basset owner its heartbreaking to look at this poor boy. Can anyone clear up what exactly caused him to lose all his fur and become swollen etc? I have looked on this page and others but can't seem to find anything. I understand that he was abused but what could cause such horrific injuries? What happened to him?
