Some 'Jackwagon' dumped another dog at my house. He has cancer and a large tumor that makes it very difficult to eat. I called the vet in Rolla and they will look at him for $30 and said its possible they could remove the tumor for around $300. I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to help with the cost of helping this guy? I can pay for the initial consultation and take care of him afterwards but I could sure use some help with the $300.

I talked to the one here in Crocker they said he's too old and they would probably have to put him down. They did find out he was chipped and called the owner (Jackwagon that dumped him here) in Waynesville who claimed he hasn't seen the dog in a year. He's loosing weight I don't know what to do?

Sad to say, Mark but if he is that old, putting him to sleep may be the best thing in this case. It wouldn't hurt to try Kim Fuhr, she may have an idea or be able to help.

Go with Kim, she saved a German shepherd with a traumatic amputation and collapsed hip,
He lives across the street from me, sucker can move! Scares the poo out of the meter guy, they reamputated at the hip and that three legged dog has a new lease on life.

Cancers generally are a different story, I know a woman who does greyhound rescue. Her puppy was diagnosed early, operations chemo even radiation kept the dog sick until it died a horrible death but she refused to put her down... Over

7,000 bucks in two years.....

If the dog has a chip in it and they traced the owner I would think he is responsible for the dog, has anyone contacted law enforcement over this?
I would think the people at the Crocker shelter should be the ones to talk to either the sheriff or prosecutor.

Legally, the owner should assume possession and all responsibilities....
Call the Sheriff to return the dog and call the humane society to do a report and ask for follow on visits...

Good point Rudy.

Oh my God! That poor dog needs to be put out of it's misery. It's hungry and obviouly in pain. Even if you took it to the vet and got it taken care of, you're only delaying the inevitable. If you can't afford the vet, I'll help you put it down if you want me to, and I'll help dig a grave. I don't like having to put them down, But I really don't like seeing animals suffer.
