Need a Christmas miracle!

Tahoe – Hit by Car! Needs a Christmas miracle !

Elizabethtown, NC

A Shelter Friend was called by Animal Control to let us know that a beautiful retriever has been hit by car. We asked the Vet to try to help him. When we x-rayed the story got even more disturbing. Not only did was he hit by car but someone has shot this poor boy as well. Look at all that buckshot ! He is in ICU needing funds to care for him and prayers to give him the strength to fight.

Please donate to help us pay his vet bills and give him every chance to survive. our website donate button you may also call the Elizabethtown Vet hospital 910-862-3000 but will not have receptionist till Friday due to holidays. A Shelter Friend cannot keep taking on medical emergencies without your help. The County Kill Shelter does not have funding and would euthanize immediately.


This poor baby looks just like our dog Zeke! Can you imagine this poor creature has been hit by a car and shot by buckshot? 

Will be donating the last bit of money I have for Christmas and seeing if I can pick him up on my way back home. Elizabethtown is between here and home. I’d be able to spend 24/7 with him giving him round-the-clock care, help him with physical therapy, and will be able to take him to our local vet.

If you can donate, anything at all, please do.

Tahoe needs a Christmas miracle.
