Say hello to Bentley, an 8 year-old black lab/hound mix. Poor Bentley is also terrified of loud noises, including fireworks.
On July 3, 2018, Bentley’s mom leg him outside to potty. And so it always seems to happen this way with dogs who are scared of fireworks—someone lit a very loud firework and scared Bentley so bad that he escaped from his safe yard! His mom was beside herself, Bentley was all alone and lost during the worst time possible. He escaped around 4 pm and at 8 am the next day he made it home—with a very deep cut on his stomach. So, it was off to the vet for Bentley!
His mom was able to pay for the vet bill for the stitches, but a few days later Bentley ripped open his stitches, and this time she couldn't afford the emergency vet visit. Being a single mom who doesn't receive child support for her children, she could not pay for this follow up visit. She applied to Fur Kids Foundation for help, and we were able to assist.
Bentley is on his way to recovery, and is happy that this Fourth of July has come and gone.
