We need your help... dog "hit by car" turned out to have been maliciously wounded!
This handsome young man was found and brought to an emergency vet center by a good samaritan believed to be hit by a car. After a thorough exam it was determined that he was not hit by a car, but instead suffered from an inexcusable act of malicious cruelty. The photos are too graphic to post, this darling soul was sliced open on his neck and abdomen. Through the quick action of the veterinarians and staff he was quickly stabilized and has a good prognosis of a full recovery.
Ring Dog Rescue is asking the public to help with his medical expenses, the emergency veterinarian is not making a dime off of this case, we are only needing to cover the cost. This precious man will need several weeks of recovery, antibiotics and potentially 2 surgeries to remove dead skin and keep the wounds closed. We are working with authorities to gain information to prosecute the unknown individuals who did this.
Please help us help him!

By giving these animals something to do and to look forward to, it will help them show better when potential adopters visit, calm them with an activity and over all enrich their stay.
Together as a community we can make a difference in a sheltered dogs life!
Open Your Hearts
Tucker is a 25-year-old with Cystic Fibrosis. He's been in MCV's ICU for over 20 days and waiting for acceptance by Duke University for a double lung transplant.
Tucker shares his life with his two soulmates, Kane and Kandi. He's so connected to them that, as his health deteriorated, MCV allowed Kandi to visit him. (See the pictures of this visit.) After reconnecting with one of his dogs, Tucker's health improved. Recently, Tucker's health took a turn for the worse.
Last week, Tucker's family asked Ring Dog Rescue for help. Because their time is spent at the hospital, at work, and raising money for Tucker's medical expenses, they needed someone who would care of Kane and Kandi. We realized the bond between Tucker and his dogs, and we agreed to help. We've assured them that his dogs will be cared for and loved with all of our bully hearts.
Now, we turn to you to help us raise money for Kane and Kandi's care. Remember, all donations are tax deductible and that every dollar helps.
