Carmellous’ mom noticed something was wrong, and suspected he had a broken leg. Due to Covid-19, the family had fallen on hard times. They were able to work out an agreement with Valley Save a pet to have him seen. It turned out that Carmellous had been shot with buckshot, which had shattered his leg. The vets determined amputation would be this boy’s best chance of survival. As his family was getting ready to bring him home, they realized they were lacking many of the essentials needed to care for him. We were able to come together as a group to not only help Carmellous remain comfortable during his recovery, but also to assist his humans with many various needs.
