Rodger needs your help more than ever
We will never forget the day Rodger arrived to the shelter after surviving being hit by a car. We took one look at Rodger and knew he needed emergency medical help, so he was rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital minutes after arriving to the shelter.
Rodger sustained a multitude of injuries from the accident, the most critical being the degloving of the skin on his lower mandible. The excruciating pain this dog must have been in, but he still remained well tempered and friendly to vet staff during treatment. Rodger underwent a massive surgery to reattach the skin to the tissue of his jaw, we were told by the vet there were too many stitches to even keep track. Other injuries sustained from the accident are a broken jaw and nerve damage to one of his eye. Rodger was lucky those were the extent of his injuries.
