Could anyone spare a few dollars for a guy down on his luck? Lucky has not always been so lucky. His former owner, now charged with animal cruelty, let a collar become deeply and painfully embedded in Lucky's neck. Ouch! Lee Caswell, owner of Nick of Time Rescue pulls and vets some very sick and needy animals from the Clayton County Animal Control, now a heartstick shelter. She often does this with very little donations and could use a little help. She is not non-profit although she would like to be one day. She also has some other animals that have required a lot of vet care. Another animal needing vet donations is an emaciated cat. She cares and vets them at her expense and sends them to other rescues for little or no charge. She pulls many that face death by heartstick as well as those that aare very sick and needy. Please consider donating to her and her animals so she can continuing rescuing these animals.
Donations can be sent via paypal to nickoftimerescue@ yahoo.com
Thanks for your help.

Attached are the graphic pictures of Lucky's embedded collar wounds. These were taken AFTER the maggots had been cleaned out and the ragged edges scrubbed down by a vet. The infection smelled like a rotting animal and the pain had to be almost unbearable. He was picked up by animal control from him home where his owner knew his collar was embedded in his neck and his only defense was to say he didn't know it was 'that bad.' His now former owner has been charged with animal cruelty and will have his day in court. Lucky (named by the animal control inmate that cared for him during his stay at Clayton) has been rescued and is safe and now just has to heal from his horrific wounds and go on to be adopted by a loving family. He will require several more trips to the vet for additional care. Any financial help would be greatly appreciated for this deserving boy as his vet bills continue.
