A Thanksgiving Rescue
An Oakland police officer found this injured Shepherd mix on the side of the road late on Thanksgiving night. It appeared that he had been hit by a car and left to die. The OPD officer immediately rushed the pooch to an emergency animal hospital, where the veterinarians on duty determined that he had two badly broken legs. Friends of Oakland Animal Services (FOAS) was contacted, and agreed to help cover the pup's medical expenses, including his x-rays. When German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California stepped in and offered to provide foster care and find him an adoptive home, the lucky boy's fortune turned yet again. What a wonderful expample of human kindness at work, with folks willing to pitch in on Thanksgiving night in order to save a deserving dog's life!
