Hurt dog found on Arborcrest Drive, Decatur
The dog did not have a collar and is not microchipped. If you recognize this dog, please direct his owners to http://dekalbanimalservices.com/
UPDATE: here's his DCAS profile
Since the owner has not been found yet, a fundraiser has been set up to help cover vet costs, see https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/fpRU8?psid=64149191971240c7b171d21ca1a7943d&fb_ref=share__61TYu1
UPDATE 3: "Rescue pending" status posted on DCAS, meaning, a rescue group has stepped forward to get this dog out of the pokey and provide an environment where he can recover and then be adopted. YAY!
UPDATE 4: Per a Facebook update, vets determined that this dog was shot at some point and a bullet fragment migrated to his spine, causing hind-leg paralysis; he will be evaluated at UGA. He also appears to have been on his own for a while. The New England Humane Society (Facebook, web), based in northern Rhode Island and with established relationship with rural Georgia shelters, has agreed to take him in for rehoming. For years, a number of rescue volunteers and organizations have been relocating dogs and cats from states with a surplus of unwanted animals to areas where there is high demand for adoptable pets. "Lovell" (as he is being called by DCAS) faces mounting vet bills ($800 so far); if you would like to contribute, you may do so via his Fundrazr page.
