LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Ala. – A dog found in northwest Alabama has a tragic story, but an opportunity for you to help him.
Late in the night on Wednesday, October 6, Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office Deputies found a dog in Waterloo. According to Animal Control Director Cheryl Jones, the dog, later named Frank, was found chained to a pole with severe injuries.
Initially, Frank was taken to a local vet who recommended he be euthanized due to how severe his injuries were.
However, Jones wanted a second opinion and the vet referred Frank to the Mississippi State University Animal Health Center.
Doctors at Mississippi State told Jones Wednesday that Frank’s injuries were treatable, however, the recovery will be long and cost around $20,000, possibly involving skin grafts.
Jones said Chloe’s Fund will help pay for the surgery and encouraged the community to donate to the fund via PayPal to email@example.com.
Check donations can also be mailed to or delivered in-person at the Florence-Lauderdale Animal Shelter, located at 3240 Roberson Road, Florence, AL 35630. Cash donations will also be accepted in person.
