Hank needs surgery; can you help to end his pain?
Handsome Hank is a dream dog. He’s a year or two old Boxer/English bull dog mix with perhaps a smidge of Bull Mastiff or American Staffordshire terrier thrown in for good measure. He loves people dearly and seems to do well with other dogs, too. But despite being a crazy cool and wonderful dog, when Hank’s owners moved out of Ohatchee earlier this year, they just left him behind.
A Good Samaritan found Hank wandering around in Anniston and how he got there from Ohatchee remains a mystery. He was limping and she didn’t know if he had been injured or hit by a car. She contacted area shelters but it seemed everyone was full. When she reached out to the Calhoun County Humane Society (CCHS), however, they took one look at Hank and knew they had to do something to help. They suggested some rescue organizations for her to contact and said, if nothing works out let us know. Well, nothing worked out and Hank came to CCHS two months ago.
It turns out Hank needs something called Femoral Head Osteotomy or FHO, in order to fix his left rear leg. FHO fixes several hip conditions including hip dysplasia and a fractured or dislocated hip. It is an effective surgery but very expensive. CCHS needs to raise $3,500 to pay for Hank’s surgery and post-surgery care and medicine. It’s a huge lift, but Hank is a young, strong, otherwise healthy dog who could be someone’s best friend for many years. We’re asking for your help. Please give what you can so Hank can get the medical care he needs.
