Jake's Second Chance with MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue
Jake, born in April 2021, was signed over to an all breed rescue 12 hours after he was brutally attacked by two other dogs he lived with. Owners went out for the evening leaving the dogs to free roam unattended. Jake had been attacked before in the past by the same dogs but this was on another level resulting in expensive medical care that the owners could not afford thus he was surrendered. MABTR was contacted due to the extent of his injuries and long term care.
Jake spent a week at the vet clinic that took him in over a weekend. Bandages were changed daily, drainage tub for under his front arm pit, iv fluids and medication plus lots of love. Unfortunately we could not save his leg as his skin started to die thus we made the decision which turned out to be the right one. Immediately after surgery he was walking where before he did not want to move.
MABTR's total medical bill for Jake came to $1900 (which includes a discount). The MABTR adoption fee was $400 which is based on age, not our investment in medical care.
