Update champ got adopted today. Now headed home to a loving family that will take care of him forever. Donations appreciated to cover vet bills to get him healthy. ***August 25, 2020 the shelter responded to a case where an eleven month old boxer was in need of our services. He was named Champ by the rescue group. The family was unable to take proper care of the dog and could not afford to feed him. We immediately took him in and placed him with Tail Waggin Rescue. It ...has been touch and go, he has had multiple procedures and surgeries to remove foreign objects from his stomach in an attempt to save his life. He is finally putting on weight and able to eat and elimate properly. If not for the quick response from Animal Services, Tail Waggin Rescue/Patti Guinn and great Vet support, this little man would have died. If you which to donate for his huge vet bills, please contact the rescue. It truly takes a village to save them all. https://www.facebook.com/Tail-Waggin-All-Breed-Rescue-722126371193932/?update
