The Arrow Fund is asking for your help to save the life of a puppy named Hemingway.

This Aussie pup was brought into a shelter as an owner surrender. This lethargic, lifeless, little boy is in a pitiful state, sick with an upper respiratory infection. And despite testing negative for Parvo at the shelter, Hemingway tested positive for it overnight. He is riddled with fleas on top of everything else. This poor little boy is really suffering!

The shelter was going to euthanize Hemingway within minutes of receiving him because of lack of resources, but luckily The Arrow Fund stepped in to save him despite being full themselves.

 

Hemingway is fighting for his life at the Crestwood Veterinary Hospital, still in a very critical state despite his numbers looking a little better since his arrival. Please keep Hemingway in your thoughts and donate to help pay for this life-saving treatment if you can. This pup deserves all the love and affection he can get. Get well soon, Hemingway! There is a forever home out there waiting for you when you are better.

We know it can’t be helped sometimes when a pet guardian has to give up their animals, but seeing this beautiful little boy suffering is just another reminder of why it is so important to be sure we are able to take care of our pets. There are resources available to assist you if you are struggling, and our shelters are already overcrowded, with more than 6.5 million animals entering those shelters every year. As in the case of Hemingway, a lack of resources and dogs being too ill to easily treat, means around 1.5 million of those pets end up being euthanized. We have to become a nation of animal adopters if we are ever going to turn the tide on this.

The Arrow Fund works tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate severe cases of animal abuse and neglect. If you are interested in finding out more about that work, or are able to assist in any way, please get in touch.
