Benny is a 6 month old golden retriever mix puppy, whose eyes brought tears to ours. He was emaciated, covered in dirt, dried blood, urine, and feces, and he would barely lift his head to look at us. He was run over by a car and waited at the shelter for a week for his owner to come get him. But they never came. And he ran out of time. And his spirit was broken.
Mutt Misfits pulled him immediately and not even 24 hours later, he was in the hospital fighting for his life. He had nearly become septic from an infection in his legs and lungs, had a fever of 105, and developed a life-threatening case of pneumonia. Keep in mind that he was also suffering from a broken femur, completely dislocated hip, and severely bruised shoulder with a one inch gash. Benny stayed in the hospital for weeks trying to recover from everything going and his rescue knew his bills would be adding up. With CUDDLY's help, Benny was able to raise over $8,000 AND all the wishlist gifts in the above photo to help him heal and get ready for his forever home.
Well, we want to send a buge congratulations to Benny and his foster family, who made things official this weekend and adopted him. Benny has been through so much in his short life and we are so glad that he pulled through and landed such a fantastic forever family we also want to say thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for all of the support, prayers, shares, supplies, and donations towards his care. You all played such an important role in his survival, we can't thank you all enough!
