Went to Alhambra yesterday attempting to find a highly neglected stray Pit Bull that was found by a teacher and assumed to originally be hit by a car. He had been living in the yards of the local community, yet sadly showing up each morning with more wounds on his body. I was tagged in a picture of his that was posted on Facebook. Someone had apparently called animal control so the goal was to beat them to him. Once onsite and after about 30 minutes of prompting he was drawn out by his teacher friend and a hamburger patty. He was really scared, but within a few minutes of being on the leash had realized that he was in the presence of some new friends. This awesome boy has wounds and scaring up and down his body. More concerning, he has the flesh on his stomach and penis totally infected and peeling backwards. After a few x-rays it was also discovered that he has a dislocated back hip (he limps around). To put it plainly, he needs lots of help. Not just networking for a legitimate rescue or a foster, but for funds to help cover his inevitable vet bills going forward. Can we as a community please mobilize to assist this dog? Here is a few of the videos I took from yesterday… The first is of the process of getting him to come out from under his car that he was sleeping under. The second is his ride in my car. The third is graphic, as it shows the wounds on his under-belly. To donate towards his vet care please click HERE. These funds will also be put towards his potential hospital boarding (until a suitable foster can be found), to advertise for alignment with a reputable rescue, or any other things that he may need along the way. Surgery on his hip could also be in his foreseeable future, that’s yet to be determined and really primarily depends on his new vet’s opinion. Hayley and Diana have arranged for his hospital stay, and I’ll be dropping him up there in a few short hours. Please network and consider helping Fitzgerald!
