Meet Huckelberry,
In early June, Huckeberry found himself caught in a bear trap in Arkansas. There was only one way he could survive by chewing his foot off and going for help which he did. Animal control found him and gave him very little hope of survival but they took him to Dr. Dreary in Arkansas to see if she could help. On June 13, Dr. Dreary did a partial amputation on his leg, applied daily bandages and repaired the damage to his other rear foot. Huckleberry is 10 years old. The Humane society called FOCHP because they heard we had good luck with finding homes for 3 legged dogs. We posted him on our Website and were ecstatic when we received an offer to foster him until he finds a home. So on August 7th he started his Journey to CA. Once he arrived, Huckleberry met his new best friend Dr. Kathy. She recognized he would be a prime candidate for a prosthetic leg and led us to Ortho Pets in Colorado that helps animals just like Huckleberry. We called them and they said if we got X rays, they could make the prosthetic without even seeing him. Dr. Kathy took the necessary X rays which are on their way to Colorado. The cost for the prosthetic is about $1,600 and we are very hopeful we can raise the money and give Huckelberry back his leg. He still uses the stump and tries to walk on it, so the prosthetic will be perfect. We need the FOCHP Faithful to help this noble boy. You can help him walk for the rest of his life. And Huckleberry thanks you. Donations can be made on our website by clicking on the donation button.
