Update 8/12/17: Adopted!
On August 7, a 3-legged dog was picked up and taken to the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, Texas. The dog, whose name is unknown, is clearly terrified.
Someone paid to have this dog’s leg amputated – someone cared enough to get him expensive surgery. It would seem that this dog has an owner somewhere – but where? Volunteers at the animal control agency are hopeful that someone will recognize this stray and come forward to take him home.
Please share this information and help reunited this frightened dog with his rightful owner.
Update 8/11 – We are happy to say that Survivor has left with adopter today!! Thank you so much for all your help!!Update 8/8 – It looks like Survivor has an adoption hold and a backup rescue hold!!! Please keep sharing till he is out of the building as sometimes they can fall through We can't help but call this three-legged boy "Survivor," because it is clear he has been through so much. We don't need to know his story to know he has had a hard life. He was picked up by animal patrol on 8/7 from 77039. We hope he has a loving family looking for him, but based on his condition, that is a high hope. If his family does not come within 72 hours, we want to have a plan in place to get him out AS SOON as his mandatory stray holding period is up. To do that, we need a committed local foster and donations for his vet care, then we will work to find a rescue. If you are local and can open your home to Survivor, comment below and a volunteer will be in touch. $235 in donations received If you cannot foster, please consider donating. 100% goes to the rescue that saves him, and if he isn't rescued, donations are refunded in full. Just say it is for Survivor in the notes!Paypal.me/pupitforwardhttp://petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=HRRS.a490175A490175Harris County Animal Shelter612 Canino Rd.
