Nugget was was found laying in someone's yard covered in blood. He had over 30+ bite marks on his head, paws, and body. His tongue was torn and is still healing.We thought Nugget was on the road to recovery until he was diagnosed this past week with Babesia - an infectious disease common in dogs rescued from dogfighting operations. He required tests, hospitalization and a blood transfusion.
Despite all he has endured, Nugget is a happy boy who loves everyone he meets, wagging his tail and giving you kisses if you let him. (Nugget is also fond of his toys and carries them to bed with him :)
The estimated cost for Nugget's care is $1,500. If we reach or surpass our goal for Nugget's care, the rest of the donations will go towards the NCHS general fund to help out both cats and dogs. As always thank you for your continued support!
