This is Odin, and his owner rescued him off the streets of Mexico when he was left in a box as a 5-week-old puppy. Odin and his owner have a very strong bond; his owner told the Foundation in his application for assistance that Odin is his best friend and the pair does everything together.
Odin was involved in a terrible rollover accident with his owner earlier this year. He was rushed to Animal Medical Center of Wyoming immediately following the accident, while his owner landed in the ICU at CCMH in Gillette.
Odin had to wear brace on both legs because one of his front legs had multiple fractures, while the other one was put into a brace support his paws during the recovery of his broken leg.
Odin’s owner had lost his job earlier in the year, and the injuries he sustained due to the accident were extensive -- meaning he’d be facing multiple medical bills in the near future. The Foundation has agreed to help pay for a portion of Odin’s medical bills including wrap changes for his injuries. Odin’s owner has set up a Go Fund Me account to pay for the remainder of Odin’s medical bills.
The Foundation would like take a minute to remind everyone who drives with their pets to drive safely. When pets are not restrained in a vehicle, they can become a deadly distraction for drivers. Further, unrestrained pets can become hazards during and after an accident as well. Check out these three tips to help keep you and your pet safe during your next ride:
