I found a stray dog who's ... (severe abuse, need help)

I found a large breed dog this morning who has been viciously abused. Somebody had bound his genitals up with a zip tie and rubber band. I have rushed him to High Desert Animal Hospital and desperately need donations of any amount to help pay for his surgery. He was hemorrhaging and needed surgery immediately.

Am I allowed to ask for direct donations to be sent to the vet from my fellow Cafemoms? I am desperate to get this dog help but a $500 bill is completely out of the question for me right now. And yes, I am trying to contact animal agencies and have been lucky to get $100 funding so far. And few dollars will help.

  • First off I am so glad you found this poor dog and got him some help.

    Second I am not sure if you can ask for money here.

    Third I would call your local news channel. If you could get them to mention it I bet people would help. Heck he may even find a good home that way. If you are not going to take him in that is.

  • I think I would ask for extra donations to find the original owner and zip tie THEIR genitals.

  • what a beautiful dog how can people be so cruel that is just wrong; we are financially strapped right now ourselves or I would help. I agree with the others on calling your local news channel; and also agree with pookiekins answer. Good luck and God Bless hopefully you will get what help is needed and will find a good home for him

  • I know that where I am from, if you mention that this is not your dog, but one you have found, they can give you a discount or something, I would call the news stations, newspaper and anyone I could think of. Thank you for helping this sweet dog, I know people can be cruel, we have 3 dogs and All but one had been abandoned or dumped.
