An animal shelter in Kentucky recently took in an injured puppy who had been at another overcrowded animal control agency. The Kentucky Humane Society brought in the five-month-old puppy, dubbed MacGregor, earlier this month.

The animal welfare agency said:

This poor boy suffered blunt force trauma to his front paws that resulted in broken metacarpal bones in both his right and his left paws.

Noting that the breaks are “very unusual injuries,” and acknowledging that they are unsure what caused them. Though the shelter is unsure of what happened, they do know that they are committed to giving MacGregor the help that he needs to recover. The shelter explained:

MacGregor went to see a specialist on Friday for a consultation to determine what the next steps would be to help him. Unfortunately, our sweet MacGregor is going to need a specialized surgery to mend his broken bones. This is a major surgery that requires a lot of resources, and KHS’ minimum quote for the surgery is $5,000.

The hefty price tag is beyond the capability of the shelter, which has reached out to their followers for help.

This surgery is more than KHS’ monthly budget for offsite veterinary care, but we believe MacGregor is worth saving. This handsome boy has quickly stolen all of our hearts at KHS! Despite the pain he is in, he has the best personality and loves giving kisses to all of the staff and volunteers who visit with him.
