Vick is one very lucky boy! He was reported to us by an Australian lady who had seen him running down the beach. We were fortunately in the area so went straight the, located and rescued him. People were throwing rocks to chase him away because he smelt so bad. He has a treatable skin condition that has been left for some time. His neck was being severed by the thin string tied around it.
We scooped him up, much to his disgust! And took him to Sunset Vet for surgery, where they did a great job cleaning it up and sewing him back together.
We are thrilled to announce that the compassionate lady who reported him will fund raise to cover his initial vet bill! However he is likely to require a significant amount of future rehabilitation as he’s not just physically injured, he is severely traumatized.
