About the Campaign

Brought in to the shelter with this injury!

Shelter staff asked for help, and now the rescuer’s need donations.

Amputation required, and there are some complications.

He was brought in to the animal shelter in Bakersfield, CA in this condition. Unfortunately we do not know more than that. Some of the shelter staff say they think he was injured in a dog fight or animal attack, and then chewed the rest of the flesh off of his bone.

This video shows a graphic injury:

But, when we look at the injury, it looks to “perfect” to us, and we wonder if a person did this, or did part of this to him. It’s a weird one. A graphic picture that clearly shows his leg wound is at the bottom of this post, scroll down to see it.

He was transported from Bakersfield to Irvine August 29th, arriving at Camino Vet Hospital in the evening. The transporter had to bandage him as the shelter provided no bandaging or care. UPDATE: We received the wrong information. In fact Bakersfield animal shelter provided the bandaging AND they gave Hero pain medications and other medicinal treatment. We apologize to Bakersfield animal shelter for this error! We will have much more detailed information later on Friday the 30th, once the rescue gets to the vet and is able to take photos and consult with the doctor in detail.

Vet Info

We now have the official estimate for Hero’s surgery, the high end is over $2100.00, so we have changed his funding goal to this amount:

    What the hell kind of shelter provides no care to an animal in this condition. That is truly disturbing. The people running that shelter should all be fired and the city of Bakersfield should hire people that actually care about the welfare of the animals that end up there.

      Carri, in fact Hero was bandaged at the shelter, we originally received the wrong information about that. The shelter did properly care for him!

    Some humans should not be allowed to live, letting this poor animal get this way, or worse doing it to him.

    The cut looks too perfect to be the result of a dog fight or attack. Looks like someone sliced it with a machete/knife.

    It looks like a perfect cut to me not a dog bite or that he did it himself. I think some moron cut his leg off it’s to clean off a cut. VERY HEART BREAKING
