You’d never know Marvel was injured from the look in his eyes or the wag of his tail.
All the 5-month-old puppy wants is belly rubs and ear scratches. Even as our medical staff stretched him out on the x-ray table to get scans of his two broken front legs, Marvel wagged his tail.
Our staff, however, knew the severity of his injuries. We knew the broken bones weren’t just an average injury; they were life-threatening.
Marvel, an orphaned German shepherd mix, needs your help. He needs the help of his community — YOU. Struck by a car while wandering as a stray on a nearby reservation, Marvel found his way to our shelter – after making a brief pit stop at Washoe County Regional Animal Services.
Marvel’s first surgery was rough on the little guy — and required he spend a week at the emergency veterinary specialist, where he will remain until he has been medically cleared. After that, he faces a challenging road to recovery.
Lifesaving isn’t without cost – and Marvel’s medical treatment is expected to reach more than $10,000, putting a strain on shelter resources. We are asking for help toward Marvel’s care and to give him the carefree life he deserves.
