AU$2,695.00raised of $3,000.00 goal
On April 2, Chief was brought into Animal Services with wounds due to being shot with two arrows through his body—one that went completely through his chest and abdomen, and the second through his left wrist. While Animal Services did everything they could to keep Chief comfortable, the shelter does not have the medical equipment that was necessary to save his life. Luckily, Animal Services staff contacted a local private veterinary clinic, which agreed to help Chief. Chief underwent emergency surgery later that afternoon, and veterinarians were able to surgically remove the arrows shot into his body and save his life.
Chief still requires long-term care, as his leg is in a cast for three more weeks while he heals. During his treatment, it was also found that Chief tested positive for heartworms, and requires the medical treatment for heartworm disease.
A substantial amount of Chief’s surgery costs were covered thanks to the dedication from Animal Services and the local clinic’s veterinarians, but still requires some raised funds to finish covering the cost of his surgery and treatment. With the help of these donations, Chief’s bill at the private clinic can be paid and can continue the work needed to save his life. Chief will be up for adoption once recovered and is seeking a forever home. Chief is a very sweet dog who is great with kids, dogs, and cats.
