Help for Huckleberry
Meet Huckleberry Hound! Huck is about 3 years old and has lived life until OBHR on a chain next to another dog fighting for food. The property owners agreed to give Huck (no name just the dog) to local animal control who was going to turn him over to KY Basset Rescue. They did not have room for immediate placement but we did and they offered to help with the transfer. Before AC could get him they were informed he was dead. Killed by coyotes. He later turned up as a stray at a local shelter. We believe he was set loose to avoid prosecution.
With the help of volunteers in KY and OH, Huckleberry now has a name and a foster home and is getting much needed vet care! He is horribly underweight, only 35 pounds, and the vet will not neuter him until his is at least 45 pounds. He has a lot of parasites and is on a round of meds to help clear them up!
One vet trip and Huck already has $300 of vet bills, $50 more than what his adoption fee will be! He will need several more vet trips and parasite screenings, probably more meds to get things cleared up, and then a neutering. He will not be available for adoption for at least one month, possibly longer depending on his progress. By the time he is adopted we are anticipating close to $1000 in vetting.
