Shepherd, a 9-month-old pit bull-type puppy, was left for dead – abandoned in a ditch where he laid helpless for another 8 to 10 hours unable to lift his head, let alone walk.

When Humane Law Enforcement Officers (HLE) with the Humane Rescue Alliance found Shepherd, he was severely emaciated, hypothermic, and suffering from skin infections. He had open pressure sores that developed from lying on his protruding bones. Worst of all, he was unresponsive.

“Had we waited any longer, I don’t think he would have made it,” said HRA Officer Thomas Ingle.

Over the next 11 weeks, Shepherd made tremendous progress -- safely gaining weight and regaining strength and mobility in his hind legs. Eventually he was healthy enough to be adopted and found the perfect family.

Now named ‘Tig,’ he spends his days going on walks, playing, and snuggling with his new canine brother and sister.

When Shepherd was initially presented to the hospital, he was fighting for his life and in grave condition, and we were right there along with him helping him every step of the way.

Shepherd is an amazing example, but he is just one example of the countless lives we save every year. The work we do at HRA truly saves lives, and we wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of our community and our generous donors.
