ApolloSome stories must be told and Apollo's is one of those. Currently his tale is one of sadness and abuse, but soon we hope it will be one of strength, triumph and love.
Apollo came to us with severe burns on most of his body. His skin was sloughing off and the wounds were so bad his muscle was exposed in some areas. The pain must have been unimaginable. His eyes were also burned and developed ulcers which required cornea surgery to prevent rupturing. Our team suspects the burns are from very hot liquid or chemicals.
Despite the trauma Apollo has endured at the hands of humans, he is sweet, loving and trusting. We don't have a joyful story to share yet, but we are doing everything in our power to ensure this deserving young dog realizes his happy ending.
If you recently gave a gift toward Apollos care, thank you so much for responding rapidly and generously. Your donation to our Fund for the Animals will help pay for the many months of bandage changes, pain medications, anesthesia and so much for this sweet dog and all our homeless pets who are recovering from homelessness, neglect and abuse.
