The Story

One week, seven days, one hundred and sixty eight hours, ten thousand and eighty minutes...that's how long Gavin laid in pain on the road after being hit by a car. Gavin was nothing. No one stopped, no one took a minute to help him out of the road or take him to a vet. For one week no one did anything to help him. Finally, after watching him suffer for so long a call was made to Animal Control. The animal control officer was in shock that so many houses and so many people watched him suffer and did nothing. She took him to the shelter where is luck began to change for the better! The caring shelter staff immediately rushed him to the vet where it was discovered he had broken his front left leg, had nerve damage to his front right leg, and injured his back right hip. The small shelter was left without options. They had to euthanize the sweet boy who fought so hard to live or pray for a miracle.  Luckily, before making that decision they reached out to us at ARF-SEPA. We are a small foster-based rescue in Media, PA. We didn't have the funding, but we couldn't let Gavin die. We agreed to take him into our rescue, and with that we took on some hefty medical bills. Gavin's bills from the shelter include emergency visits, a FHO surgery, amputation and splinting/casting of his front broken leg. Along with all of that he needs pain medication and antibiotics and weekly vet visits to keep him on track the right track for a few more weeks while in our care in PA. So far his bills have totaled $5,500 and we expect to spend another $500 in weekly visits. This boy in beyond sweet, and truly inspiring to meet! Everyone who meets him falls in love, and we are so grateful to have been given the opportunity to save his life. We are hoping that everyone will share and consider helping with his medical bills, so we can keep saying yes, and keep helping amazing dogs like Gavin!
