Theo needs your help to heal

posted on Tuesday, April 18, 2023 in News


Our Miracle Medical Team was ready and waiting when an ARL Animal Services officer rushed in carrying a thin, badly injured 8-week-old puppy in his arms.

Theo’s back leg was broken … but what was even more concerning was the soiled wrapping of what looked like paper towels, scotch tape and electrical tape around his back foot. Even gently touching the area caused him to cry out in pain.


Our veterinarian quickly administered pain medications and placed Theo under sedation to allow us to help him. As we removed the wrapping, the severity of his injury became clear: His foot was missing entirely and the stump that was left was bloody and raw.

Even more shocking, his injuries were not recent. From the condition of his leg and wound, our veterinarian estimated his leg had been broken for at least a month, and the trauma to Theo’s foot had happened weeks ago.
