We met with Channel 2 Action News today at Peachtree Hills Animal Hospital to share the story of Ben, one of our ALR rescue dogs who is recovering at the clinic. We found Ben last week on the Fulton County Animal Shelter Facebook page and immediately took action to get him care. Ben’s wounds likely came from being drug across the road, and the vet at Peachtree Hills told us that the deep wound on his face is from road burn that scrapped off the skin to the bone.
Ben is doing well and receiving a lot of love and care at the vet, however he will need to have his face scraped daily and future surgeries, much like a burn victim, to help him heal. The cost can be in the thousands of dollars. Atlanta Lab Rescue is going to make sure the Ben receives all the care that he needs, and his spirit and the love that he has for everyone around him makes what we do, even when it is hard and the funds are low, worth every effort. Our dogs are so resilient, and as you can tell from the news clip he sure has a happy tail regardless of what he has been through!
