Our friend Matthew, who you all know, found this boy on the road in Bakersfield after being hit by a car. We had him examined at San Joaquin vet and he has a badly broken pelvis. It didn’t appear to have any other issues but the pelvis, that was until this morning. It turns out our boy has a completely broken front right leg (his radius and ulna). A specialist is coming up to evaluate him tomorrow and we’ll know more. What we do know are 3 things: that this dog is a CHAMP WITH A HUGE HEART, that he needs a name, and that we NEED TO RAISE MONEY FOR POSSIBLY TWO SURGERIES. Lets spread the word and work our magic! Mutt militia to the rescue!!!

While Hercules is on the mend we are accepting applications for fostering and for adoptions
