Abused Dog Alex needs our help!

Hello World Family,
Falcon and Dove hope you had a great weekend. We were having a wonderful time, until we heard this sad story. This dog really needs help from everyone who can. I have obtained this information from the Washington Humane Society. Please, Alexamder.

Thank you, Falcon and Dove Family! We know you are fierce friends of animals!

When the WAHS cruelty investigator picked up the poor dog, it was the first step in the right direction for an innocent animal who is now recovering from a history of brutality at the hands of his owner.

Named Alexander by staff, he finally felt good enough to eat some wet food from a small bowl held by manager, Lorie Schooley who received the call about the dog at 8am, August 3rd.

One of Alex's hips has been knocked out of the socket and the other hip bone has been broken from the leg. He also has open infected wounds. More examinations will reveal how much can be repaired by veterinary specialists. In the meantime, Alex is resting in the safety of the shelter while police and Humane Officers file the appropriate charges against the owner.

Surgery by specialists can run into thousands of dollars. We are asking for your help to finance this sad and unexpected financial burden which is above and beyond the basics our shelter can provide.

Please share the load for Alex by making a contribution towards his medical bills as we try to make the rest of his life a happy one.

Make your tax-deductible donation* check payable to WAHS and write “Alex” in the memo line.
*All donations in excess of what is necessary for Alex will be used for our other deserving shelter cats and dogs.
