Good Samaritans Open Home to Injured Rottweiler
In mid-April, Good Samaritans Stephanie and David found an injured stray Rottweiler in Avondale and took him to an Emergency Animal Clinic. Our Emergency Animal Medical Technicians™ picked up the Rottie and transferred him to our Second Chance Animal Hospital™, where our vets discovered he had a badly fractured leg that required a complicated surgery to re-set the leg. All the while, David and Stephanie had begun growing attached to the 5-year-old pup, now known as King, and would call often to check in on his progress. When King was ready to go into foster care to recover from his injuries, David and Stephanie volunteered to open their home and care for King through our Homeward Bound program. Homeward Bound allows individuals to foster a pet who is healing from injury or needs respite from the shelter, and then provides them the opportunity to adopt that pet once the furry friend is ready to find a loving home. King will need another 8-12 weeks in foster care before his leg is completely healed. Once King has fully recovered, Stephanie and David hope to make the lovable Rottie part of their forever family.
