Hearts are breaking everywhere for a sweet German Shepherd named Kal who was hit by a car in South Texas on Thursday, July 13, 2017. He had wandered onto a highway with his dog friend, who tragically died at the scene of the accident. Kal was left with serious injuries including a punctured lung and a gruesome eye injury that had his left eye out of its socket.
Upon examination, it was discovered Kal was heartworm positive and had tick disease, which caused his blood count to be low. To combat this, he was given a blood transfusion before surgery to remove his damaged eye.
Luckily, this beautiful canine survived surgery and is being watched carefully at the hospital. Kal certainly has a fighting spirit, and we hope he regains strength and his condition continues to improve.
Kal’s medical bills have already totaled several thousand dollars, and he still has a long road to recovery. If you are touched by Kal’s story, please consider making a donation to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.
