Right off the bat, odds were stocked against Toby, a sweet Pit bull mix who used to live in the mean streets of South Carolina. At a tender age of 6 months, Toby is the recipient of life-threatening injuries: a damaged eye, crushed nasal passages and missing teeth.
As if his injuries weren’t bad enough, he had to battle hunger and the elements. He also had kennel cough.
Thankfully, the compassionate people at Anderson Shelter in South Carolina did not turn a blind eye to Toby’s predicament. They rescued him off the streets and gave him love, which is probably the first time he has felt kindness in his life.
Toby’s eye is so damaged it had to be removed. BUT the severity of his injuries as a whole made it complicated for surgery to be performed.
Moreover, he had to undergo MRI/CT scan to determine the extent of his injuries. The scans alone were very expensive.
Toby was transported to WISE Animal Rescue for further help. Right now, Toby is taking very strong pain meds and antibiotics to improve his breathing problems and ease his overall pain.
But the good news is that Toby can lead a long happy life and YOU can be a part of that! Turn to the next page to see how you can help Toby!!
