9/05/19 Update: We received an update yesterday about Hercules. He is doing fantastic since his amputation, feels amazing, and is embracing being a tripawd! Thank you to everyone who donated and sent good vibes for this handsome guy. You all gave him a new lease on life.
8/26/19 Update: Thank you doesn't come close to expressing our gratitude. Thanks to your tremendous support, we have raised more than enough funds to help cover Hercules' surgery and to cover his costs of aftercare -- we received more than $1,600! Hercules is in good hands because of you. This community it amazing. We are so humbled by all of your donations and support. Thank you so much.
We'd like to reintroduce you to Hercules, the handsome pit bull. If you remember: Hercules was hit by a vehicle, and his family followed a veterinarian’s advice to try to help his broken leg heal instead of pay for an amputation, which was way over their budget. In the meantime, his family ran into other issues, and Hercules' leg started to get worse.
Hercules Needs Your Help!
Today, Hercules needs help more than ever. While his parents are away getting better, Hercules has begun to self mutilate his foot, but he’s not in pain—yet. Hercules needs surgery to get his leg amputated, and Fur Kids Foundation needs your help to get it done.
How you can help Hercules
Fur Kids Foundation is giving $500 toward his surgery, which is estimated to cost close to $1,500. Will you donate $5 to help Hercules get the surgery he needs? You can donate on this post or on PayPal. Please let us know your donation is for Hercules in the comments. Donations are tax-deductible.
His surgery is slated for next week, and we promise to keep everyone updated on how he does. Make sure you're following us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
How Fur Kids Foundation helps local families
Any money raised over the amount of the surgery costs will be used to pay for the cost of Hercules' aftercare needs. After that, the funds will be used to help other families in Campbell County, Wyoming with pets in need of emergency veterinary assistance.
