Randy arrived at New Hope on Feb. 3, 2021, after we were contacted by a front-line rescuer about an injured dog who had a fractured leg with the bone sticking out. We made arrangements to immediately go out and pick Randy up. He was taken directly to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine emergency department. It appeared that his injury was an old fracture and he was now fighting an infection.
He was examined and stabilized. On Feb. 4, he was taken to Orchard Veterinary Care, where he had his leg amputated later that day.
Randy spent 30 days in his foster home, healing from his surgery. Once he was cleared for adoption on March 4, he was added to Petfinder as an adoptable dog.
Randy found his loving forever home on March 15 and has been adopted by an amazing family.
We were thrilled to be recipients of the Emergency Medical Grant from the Petfinder Foundation. 100% of the grant went towards Randy’s extensive medical costs.
