This handsome boy is Hamilton, and he’s in desperate need of our help.
On Sunday, March 6th, witnesses watched as Hamilton was attacked by a neighborhood dog. He was surrendered into our care on Wednesday evening, and we were able to have him evaluated first thing this morning at one of the local veterinarians we work with.
Unfortunately, Hamilton’s jaw is broken on the left side, and will most likely require a plate in order for the bone to heal correctly. His tongue is almost completely severed as well, and will need to be surgically repaired. Due to the location of the bone fracture we have been referred to a specialist, and our staff is on their way now for a consultation with their surgical team
Despite the overwhelming pain Hamilton has undoubtedly endured for days now, he is extremely affectionate and seeks attention and love from everyone he meets.
