Help save Murph's life!
When the rescuers at Pooch Savers saw Murph suffering in a South Texas shelter, they bolted into action. The Brittany Spaniel mix's leg was mangled, infected, and sadly needed to be amputated immediately. "The wound was so infected and so bad it exposed the bone," Scott B. with the rescue tells Waggle. "We were petrified."
The shelter didn't give Pooch Savers Rescue a lot of information about Murph's injury. The nonprofit group had no idea the extent of medical care the dog would need when they agreed to save him, including a blood transfusion. "The shelter said Murph needed an immediate rescue, or he was at high risk for euthanasia since the shelter doesn’t have the means to take care of a dog like him," Lisa B. with the rescue tells Waggle. "Little Murph stayed strong enough to get out of the shelter and into our rescue, all the while being in excruciating pain, anemic, and he had a lot of fleas that were biting him."
The rescue raced him to the Emergency Animal Hospital of Collin County West for medical care. The group wasn't banking on taking in a dog with such severe needs and is hoping donations from giving animal lovers will help them cover Murph's veterinary bills. "This was a sudden and unexpected major expense and has precluded us from rescuing other dogs with medical needs," Lisa says. "We need funds to cover the vet bill."
Amazingly, though Murph is still in bad shape, he's been so good during all his procedures. "We know that he’s intelligent, happy, adaptable, and a very sweet boy. He loves affection and giving kisses. As soon as you approach him, he rolls over, so you can rub his belly. He wags his tail every time we walk in the room," Lisa adds. The rescue says Murph is special because he is a fighter and is worth every penny.
The Waggle Foundation seeks to ensure that the lives of pets are not cut short because a pet guardian is without the necessary funds to cover the cost of medical treatment, and works in partnership with the general public, media, influencers and brands to raise critical funding and awareness.
Our mission is to eradicate the economic euthanasia of pets who might otherwise live out their natural lives, sharing cherished time with their beloved families. The Foundation works to grow a community of like-minded people and organizations devoted to this goal; helps nonprofits to participate in concert; provides direct financial support for veterinary care; and works to inspire and educate responsible pet parents to circumvent this tragic outcome.
