Hit and Run In

Beamer was surrendered to the shelter after being hit by a car. Abandoned by his family, he now faced an uncertain future. What would happen to an injured dog in the shelter with extensive tissue damage on his right leg? ACDC stepped in and brought him for treatment. Due to the extent of the injury, closing the wound was difficult. The vet said if Beamer’s wound doesn’t remain closed, he may require additional surgery.

This sweet and playful schnauzer mix received laser therapy to the affected leg, and more sessions may be necessary. Beamer requires follow-up visits to the vet to assess his progress.

He is currently in foster care, where his guardian reports that he has begun to use his front leg. Beamer would be a wonderful addition to any family. However, it is ACDC’s policy not to adopt out injured animals, but to treat them until they’re ready to go to their forever homes. Of course this costs money. If you’d like to sponsor Beamer’s treatments, please click here.

This little guy is expected to recover well.
