PTIS students at Hand to Paw and Care for Dogs nurse injured dog back to health
After 5 long and trying months of rehabilitation at the Care
for Dogs shelter to save his severed back paw, Jame is reunited with his family
today! Jame had a 75% chance of having his paw saved with the only solution
being amputation of his entire back leg! Well he was a real fighter and a true
testament to the inner strength of a dog!
The 9000 baht paw:-) All medical costs for Jame’s care was raised by Hand to Paw
students through bake sales and dress up days as well as a generous donation
from the USA. It goes without mentioning all the extra care and cost, food,
daily wound dressing, meds, drives to the vet…that was provided by the Care for
Kisses and cuddles all around with the happy reunion. The family also gave me a
whopping giant hug as they were completely amazed at his recovery! Until this
day it remains unknown who severed Jame’s paw with a machete.
