Thank you to everyone that made Jacob's surgery possible!
Jacob was pulled from the shelter just in the nick of time by a very loving lady who held him until a foster family could be arranged. His foster mom drove 6 hours (one way) to pick up this very handsome boy. He is estimated to be around 9 to12 months old. Within one week of being with his foster family he attached himself to a foster sibling who was just beginning to show “little man” the ropes and teach him manners. At only 43 pounds and gaining Jacob has the sweetest disposition and is an absolute joy to have around. He even leaves the outside cat and the little dog alone! In just a weeks time he learned a lot and made friends all over town on evening walks. He has not met a stranger he did not like. He even attended his first barrel race and was a hit with everyone. Jacob even talked about rescue and how great everyone from ABMC Rescue was; after all it did save him from death row. Jacob promised his new friends that he would return the following day. Unfortunately Jacob did not get to go and is trying to recover from a very tragic accident that happened early Saturday morning.
Jacob was in a severe accident while outside with his foster siblings and was rushed to a local vet. Due to the weekend and a veterinary conference doctors in the area seemed to be few and far between. Needing immediate medical attention his foster mom decided to take him to a local vet referred to her by a friend. The doctor found that Jacobs’s leg was broken, both the radius and ulna. The doctor suggested that we see an Orthopedic Surgeon which will be a very costly visit with surgery. The doctor put a cast on his little leg concerned about the time it would take to get to the Orthopedic. Due to his age, activity level and what the future holds for Jacob the doctor felt this was the best decision.
Jacob was able to come home immediately and start the first recovery. The doctor let him go home early but knew by the involvement of his foster mom that he would be better at home then at the kennel until Monday. He is resting somewhat comfortably at home and is waiting on the next doctor’s visit.
Supporters of ABMC Rescue know we work very hard to maximise the number of dogs we help with the funds entrusted to us by supporters. This emergency surgical procedure was not part of our anticipated expenses, But, Jacob is only 9-12 mos old and it is unthinkable to not provide the care Jacob needs.
Orthopedic Surgery will be $2500.
