Get well soon, Churchill!

Get well soon, Churchill!

A true companion is loving all the time, and is a brother that is born for when there is distress.  Prov 17:17

Look what came in the e-mail today! (An’ don’ it feel good?)! BullTwitt Crew, this is for all of you who stepped up and continue to step up, not only for Churchill, but for all shelter animals and all the countless other Churchill’s out there.  Everybody can’t have a blog *sigh*

Good afternoon ThatOne,

I am happy to report Churchill is doing much better–so much so that he has started hydrotherapy for his injuries and his kidney levels are almost normal. We were concerned about his lack of appetite for the week following the attack on this poor dog…now he eats like a horse and seems to enjoy going outside to do his business (perhaps because it helps him get out of the kennel for a bit!)

Churchill was burned by a local teen who had made a Molotov cocktail using a bottle of perfume. Churchill lived in the home in which the teen also lived. That teenage boy was arrested and charges are pending. Our animal cruelty investigators are working with the local police department and Arson investigators to complete this investigation and we’re hopeful charges will be pressed soon.

Animal Care Services is a shelter but we are also a department of the City of San Antonio. We have custody of Churchill and he eventually will be put up for adoption….unfortunately, he is underweight and has heartworms in addition to the horrible burns he received on his rump, genitals and abdomen. More than 50% of his body was burned and his entire body was singed.

Your support is incredible….when you work in a shelter and see what we see daily…the way people mistreat their companion animals… it’s easy to become jaded and assume no one cares.

Thanks for proving me wrong!
