Vincent, a senior Poodle-mix, suffered for at least THREE WEEKS with a zip tie tightly embedded in his leg. Thankfully, a good Samaritan contacted The Arrow Fund, a non-profit organization based in Louisville, Kentucky. Despite being close to reaching capacity at their facility, they couldn’t turn away Vincent due to the severity of the case.

Vincent is currently at The Arrow Fund veterinary partners office and has been sedated. As of right now, it’s unknown if the team will be able to save Vincent’s leg. 

Not only is this sweet boy heavily matted and filthy, but Vincent’s pain must be unimaginable.

The Arrow Fund has taken in five distressing animal cases recently, including Vincent’s, and is in dire need of monetary donations. If you’d like to help The Arrow Fund cover medical expenses, click here
