Meet Henderson. He was found laying on the street…. someone called animal control and he was brought to the shelter. The shelter did the best they could for him with limited budget and staff but it was clear he was not going to survive another night without serious medical attention. As soon as we saw his photo we knew we had to help. He is severely emaciated. He weighs just 18 lbs – just half of what a healthy dog his age should weigh.
We rushed him to an emergency vet where he was immediately hooked up to ivs. We ran a respiratory panel, blood work, X-rays and fecal tests. We are waiting on the results. In the meantime he is receiving the best of care and resting comfortably.
