URGENT: Courage needs a Christmas miracle!

We are bringing in a special Christmas dog into rescue who has been injured and was on the critical list in the south.

His name is Courage.

Courage has significant wounds to all four of his paws and his legs as well as some head wounds. It looks like he was either hit by a car, thrown from a car, or dumped out of a truck while it was moving. These are best guesses just based upon his injuries. 

Courage is in a significant amount of pain. However, he remains gentle and friendly. Fortunately, MAGSR has a phenomenal vet working with Courage already. He is getting x-rays completed, wound care, antibiotics, and pain medication. Over the next few days we will have a better idea of the full extent of Courage's medical needs. However, no matter what the prognosis MAGSR will be by his side every step of the way. Although Courage will receive all of the love and care he needs to recover, MAGSR needs help making his Christmas wish come true.

Please consider donating to his care so that MAGSR can continue to help dogs like Courage this holiday season. Your decision to support MAGSR helps every dog you see on our website!

You can make a One-Time Donation or Contribute Every Month so MAGSR can help dogs like Courage.
