In San Bernardino, California, a Good Samaritan reported a dog in serious condition lying helpless on the sidewalk on Saturday morning. It wasn’t long before Dream Fetchers: Project Rescue arrived at the location to help.
Sadly, the dog had been wandering the neighborhood for days in extreme pain and ignored by passersby.
Volunteers transported the dog to Camino Pet Hospital:
“On the way to the vet Calypso [named by the vet] never blinked. At one point Jim was afraid he had died. Obviously he was in severe shock,” the rescue organization posted on their social media page.
Once Calypso arrived at the veterinarian hospital he was stabilized with intravenous fluids, pain medications and antibiotics. His diagnosis was heartbreaking; what must this dog have endured? Someone had been shooting at him with a pellet gun – six pellets were discovered in his x-rays. He also suffered from multiple bite wounds from either other dogs or possibly coyotes.
Veterinarians also speculate he had been hit by a car. He suffers from a minor fracture to his rear leg that will probably heal without surgery, but he also has a major, compound fracture on his front leg which will require surgical repair or possibly amputation.
“As of 12/13/2020 at 6:00PM Calypso has reached $5000.00 in donations. We expect his costs to be more than $5000.00, but do not know for sure yet. If total donations exceed the total amount Calypso ends up needing, the extra amount will be used to help other animals in need with the rescue that saved Calypso, Dream Fetchers: Project Rescue, which is a 501c3 public charity.”
