The Story

Before our eyes, a little dog went from death's door, to wagging his tail and bringing joy wherever he goes.  Hit by a car, left in the road to die, lonely, scared and in pain.  A kind lady stopped, thinking she was moving a body out of the road to avoid mutilation, when he raised his head.  He was rushed for treatment, given the best of care, went through surgery and lots of medical care, and people lined up to help pay the bill.   He is recuperating, he wags his tail and bounces around, and will be good as new very soon.  He is a little miracle.

I just had a very nice visit with Trooper, and Marley (& family).  Trooper is the little dog who was hit by a car on June 2nd, and left in the road to die. Marley is the lady who stopped and saved his life.   He has gone through a lot to include surgery, but he is doing absolutely GREAT.  His tail wags so fast it is a blur.  He is polite and well behaved and SO cute.  He is trying to run and do everything, the vets say he should be careful another month or so, but he is making a fantastic recovery.  We were able to raise all of the funding needed to get him through surgery and treatment. 

Thank you again to everyone who shared his information or helped in some way.  Church Of The Angels will be sending you a final note and update to donors.

I am adding a couple of new pictures, and folks can check back here for any updates, the link is good for about 6 months.

I am updating this page and since I am going to update the "front page", I will paste here what it said. 

His posting information said "FOUND DOG: Terrier Mix on Patton near Toftoy. 15-20 lb, friendly, neutered, no collar, no microchip. Hit by a car this morning and taken to Animal Emergency Clinic.  Please share. He has a chance if his owners can get down there."  This is in Huntsville Alabama.

One lady stopped.  She blocked traffic but some construction workers stopped to help, and she rescued a bloody, broken, hurting dog left to die in the road, taking him to get help.  Someone had run over him and kept going.  Amazing efforts to save him followed, from the vets, to people spreading the word, people donating to help, to construction workers who worked in rescue mode, and mostly to the one lady who stopped.  And a life is being saved.

We are trying to raise funds so that he can continue to get the medical attention he needs. 

He is NOT in need of foster care or adoption at this point, however he will still need help with funding.  Thanks to many people stepping up to help, he was given the emergency medical treatment he needed.  He has since moved from the ER clinic, to the animal hospital, to days in the hospital and nights at the home of the lady who found him and took him to get help, and now loves him.  He is receiving excellent care.  He has some broken bones to include a broken pelvis, which has required surgery. He is receiving pain medications and has been resting as best he can.  The estimate for the surgery is approximately $1500, to include his normal aftercare if there are no problems. This is in addition to the nearly $2000 from his Emergency Animal Hospital care and his care and treatments at the Animal Hospital.  Please consider a donation to help him.

Trooper continues to recuperate nicely.  He is much more active, trying to do more, getting stronger.  Everything is healing well, the next step for him is suture removal, planned for this weekend.

No new photos to post but I will share as I get them.
