Kane wandered into a homeowner’s garage. After several unsuccessful attempts to shoo Kane out of the garage, the homeowner called Animal Control to come and get him. Upon Kane’s arrival at the shelter and seeing the condition Kane was in, the rescue coordinator contacted the rescue group A Chance To Bloom for help. It was evident, Kane was going to die if someone didn’t take action right away to save him.
The obvious signs indicated Kane suffered from a disturbingly bad case of mange. So much so, he had eaten three legs to the bone trying to find relieve from the itch and that were now severely infected. He was extremely malnourished with spine and pelvic bones protruding to the point of causing raw spots on his skin, and so little muscle mass it was difficult for him to move. It appeared from the look in Kane’s eyes, he had given up hope.
A trip to the vet also found Kane was anemic from worms, heart worm positive and had a broken tail. In spite of it all, Kane showered everyone in the vet’s office with his sweet and loving demeanor.
Only a few days following vaccinations, de-worming, antibiotics, spray gel for his wounds, medicated baths every other day, and lots of supplements to boost his body’s immune system, Kane began to brighten and his skin started to show signs of improvement. The vet commented that with the right care, Kane stood the chance to be a very handsome and strong boy. But that care was going to come at a great cost.
Kane will need to undergo more treatment and medicine to get healthy enough to endure neutering and heart worm treatment. Legacy Animal Foundation has agreed to cover these costs so those who took him in could care for him without the worry of how to pay for it.
The caring, tireless efforts of A Chance To Bloom with the generous donations given to Legacy Animal Foundation have bestowed a hope within this precious boy–the hope he thought he’d lost. Kane now has a chance to bloom!
