URGENT: Hit by a car and almost euthanized

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Name: Mango
  • Sex: Male
  • Age: Young

$1,300.00 raised of $8,000.00

This poor 9 month old puppy was on the verge of being put to sleep after being abandoned on the streets and getting hit by a car.

An ER Vet in San Antonio just called us about this poor puppy. This 9 month old shepherd was just hit by a car and brought in by a good Samaritan who witnessed the crash. If we did not agree to rescue him he would be put to sleep! ARGH! You can't call me and ask me if we can save this dog or he will be put to sleep! Who on earth says no to that!

His microchip was traced back to owners who abandoned this nine month old puppy three months ago. The ER vet personally called begging for our help, as they didn't want to euthanize him. He is in shock, has labored breathing, some internal bleeding and his front limb is dangling. The estimate is $3000 to hospitalize and probably $1000-$2000 for surgery of his leg in a few days. 

Overall, his prognosis is looking good with treatment but we need you! We cannot say no to these cases, but we cannot do it without your help. I am begging you to help make Mango's rescue possible!


Updates

  • We are so slow to update, but Mango is stable and has been transferred to our vet! He should be receiving surgery tomorrow or Tuesday and will begin the long road to recovery. Thank you to all who donated for his care!!

  • Mango Update!

    Mango did very well throughout the night on oxygen and his internal bleeding seems to have stopped which means hopefully no more blood transfusions! If everything continues to go well throughout the morning we will try taking him off the oxygen and seeing how he does.

    Due to significant muscle trauma, his urine is a very deep brown color which means the contents of the urine can potentially cause a Kidney issue so they are monitoring his kidney function.

    Unfortunately it turns out that along with the compound fracture of his elbow, he also has a small fracture in his opposite shoulder. The bone isn't displaced so it should be an easier fix, but he will require even more care and therapy than originally intended after the surgery.

    We are currently waiting to hear back from the surgeon at our normal vet as well as the vet where he is now and will choose where he has the surgery once we speak with both surgeons.

    Thank you for being with us on this crazy ride, and make sure to tell a friend about why #MangoMatters today!
