Apollo is a rescue from Muscoy, San Bernardino. He was owned by a man living in a trailer. The owner of Apollo did not provide him with enough food. Thus, Apollo used to roam around searching for food in trash or in yards of neighbors. On February 16, 2021, while Apollo was extremely hungry, he crawled under the fence of a house owned by the neighbor of Apollo's owner and jumped on an ice box full of meat that was ready to be grilled and started eating from it. When the man saw Apollo eating from his meat, he kicked Apollo in his stomach causing him hernia that lead to his intestines falling as shown in the photos posted. The man proceeded to hit Apollo on his head causing it to swell and made one of his eyes almost give up.
When the daughter of the man grilling the meat seen her dad doing this, she took the dog away from her dad and went on google to find a phone number of a shelter or a rescue to help Apollo. After contacting so many rescues, the girl could get in contact with PetEmber Animal Rescue and we immediately sent our volunteers to take possession of the dog, hear the story of Apollo from the girl, and afterwards taking Apollo for an emergency check-up. The girl has mentioned that Apollo was always coming to their house to search for food. She directed our volunteers to his owner and helped us get a written consent from his owner to take possession of Apollo and fundraise for his surgery.
Our experienced veterinarian said that Apollo needs an urgent surgery for his hernia. But this surgery cannot be done without him being treated from the swelling and blood clots he has under his skin. Now, Apollo requires around $1600 of medical Bills. He did not deserve what happened to him. And the man who hurt him is being reported and will face charges of Animal abuse.
We are urging everyone seeing this post to intervene and donate for Apollo. He needs to be saved. Apollo did not deserve to be kicked in his stomach when all he needed is to find food. Help us stop brutality of abusers against innocent animals.
