"Wallace," as he has been named, was hit by a car earlier this week and left to fend for himself.
Unfortunately, the shelter, like many others across the country operates on very limited funding, and staff has only been able to administer pain medications thus far.
The good news is ECADR has been given permission to bring Wallace into their organization and he will be picked up on Sunday, and given the medical treatment he needs.
The bad news is it will be very costly.
ECADR is asking for donations to help with Wallace's medical costs, and their tireless director, Linda Cribb, has set up a page where folks can make a donation for the injured pug.
Sadly, dogs and cats are hit everyday by cars, and even sadder still, most drivers never bother to stop or even call local animal control officers to aid the lost or stray animal.
On a personal note, this reporter has adopted four dogs from ECADR, and all but one were 'special needs' dogs. One had medical issues, and two others showed the telltale signs of abuse.
ECADR is a wonderful group which operates on a shoestring budget and unlike other breed-centric rescue groups, takes in mix-breed dogs. They have a network of selfless individuals who foster, transport and find homes for the young and healthy, as well as for the old and sick.
If you can do so, please make a donation to help Wallace today...
