Charlie is a Golden Retriever puppy whose life was saved thanks to the supporters of our ResQFund. At just 6 months old, he was found as a stray in Rahway and brought to our Newark shelter. His rear leg was very bruised and swollen to nearly double it's normal size. Charlie walked with a pronounced limp and it was obvious he needed immediate medical attention.
He was brought to an offsite, emergency veterinary hospital where x-rays discovered that his femur was completely broken in two. We can't imagine the pain this precious boy was in or the fear he must have felt as he roamed the streets but we knew he was in excellent hands at our emergency veterinary clinic.
Charlie received emergency surgery and rehabilitative care to save his leg. His expenses exceeded $10,000, and his care was covered entirely by our generous ResQFund supporters. We will likely never know what Charlie had experienced during his first 6 months of life, but together, with the help of our ResQFund supporters, his future is bright in the arms of his new adoptive family.
