Help the Adams County Animal Shelter raise funds for Baby Boy Blue’s surgery!

This poor little dog had been running the streets of Commerce City for several months before he was caught and brought to the shelter by a good Samaritan. He had been seen dodging traffic and scavenging from garbage cans. We believe he was hit by a car and that is how his jaw became broken.He’s obviously had a rough start since he is only about a year old. The shelter felt we had to give this poor little guy a chance. Blue had serious surgery to fix his broken jaw on 11/15/12. The surgery cost $1400. The medical budget for each animal is only $50. We are relying on donations from the public to cover the cost. Every little bit helps, even just a few dollars.

 

Blue is now in foster care with our shelter manager recovering from his surgery. His jaw is wired shut and he has to wear a muzzle to hold it in place. It will take about 8 weeks for him to heal. We will have to see how his recovery goes before we decide if he will be placed up for adoption or go to rescue.

Please help if you can! The generosity of our patrons enables the shelter to help save dogs (and cats too) like Baby Boy Blue. Thank you for caring.
