An emaciated and grievously injured German shepherd was found in a ditch in South Carolina and efforts are underway to raise funds to help get him the veterinary care that he desperately needs. The dog, dubbed Achilles, was taken to Paws and Claws Veterinary in Columbia and he is being treated for malnutrition, and a gunshot wound to his shoulder.

On Saturday, Healing Species introduced Achilles to its Facebook followers:

We need help, all the help we can get to save this precious guy. Achilles was found in a ditch with a broken shoulder due to being shot and completely emaciated. We are with him at Paws and Claws right this moment getting him the help he needs. All prayers needed!!

As Achilles undergoes life-saving care, those fighting on his behalf are asking for two things…donations, and help finding who did this to him.

    Just another prime example of the cruelty inflicted on innocent defenseless animals by frigging cowards who have no respect, consideration or compassion for those who have no voice. NO animal deserves to be treated like this – and NO hunk of maggot shit human should every get away with abusing an animal. I hope Achilles recovers completely and gets the safe loving home he so obviously never had. And to the human trash who did this – there is revenge on your plate – you may never see it coming but it is just around the corner.

    Sharing for donations. Even if they find who hurt him, fat chance anything will be done. They will just say he was chasing livestock, maybe.

    I am so sick of MONSTERS in this world that prey on animals…..
    Anyone who has no compassion for an animal….has no heart and no soul.
    Period. No exceptions, no excuses.
