A dog is recovering after someone threw him from an overpass in Portland, Oregon, earlier this month. The dog, named Hank, somehow survived after someone hurled him from Interstate 5 at Marine drive – fortunately, a good Samaritan was nearby and was able to come to the injured dog’s aid, reports Fox 12 News.
It was April Eells’ mom who spotted Hank on the day his life was nearly ended – she tells Fox News that her mom “called her in a panic” after finding the injured pit bull. Eells works at a veterinary clinic in Tualatin, and an exam there reveal extensive injuries, including broken bones and torn ligaments. Eells was able to find another veterinary hospital to perform surgery on Hank, and allow the family time to raise funds.
KOMO News reports that the family has been doing their utmost to raise funds to help Hank get all of the care that he needs to make a full recovery – nearly $7,000 has been raised on GoFundMe, and a car wash was held for the recuperating pooch as well. The efforts to raise money have nearly covered the cost of Hank’s needed surgeries, reports Fox News.
Hank is in good hands – not only is he getting the veterinary care that he needs, he is now part of a family who is dedicated to keeping him healthy and happy for the remainder of his life. Eells’ parents are making him a permanent part of their family.
