Hope For Paws was notified about a scared and hurt dog that desperately needed assistance. A kind-hearted individual, Mike Badger, had been providing food for the homeless dog on a regular basis. Once he found out about Hope For Paws, he realized they were the perfect team to contact for help.
The team at Hope For Paws, while searching for a lost dog named Badger, discovered that he wasn’t in his usual hiding spot. Instead, they found him sleeping against a wall in an industrial area with a busy street and parking lot nearby. Concerned for his safety, the team knew they had to approach him with caution but act quickly. Upon seeing the rescuers, Badger was extremely frightened and ran away. After a short chase through the parking lot, the team was able to safely capture him using a snare.
The tiny furry creature let out a cry of fear and struggled to break free from the trap, unaware that he was about to receive help from some kind-hearted individuals. Gradually, he relaxed and even ate some food that the rescuers offered him. They named him Masik and took him to the vet for a thorough check-up. Masik’s body was covered in tangled, dirty fur and infested with fleas. The matted fur was so severe that they had to give him a strong anesthetic to shave it all off.
Masik, a dog rescued by Hope For Paws, has undergone successful surgery to fix his crushed pelvis. The surgery was performed by Dr. Antonio Pedraza and Masik is now healing at a foster home with L.A. Animal Rescue. Masik is doing much better, but he still needs a loving forever home. If you are interested in adopting Masik, please contact L.A. Animal Rescue at www.LAAR.org.
