A fundraising campaign is underway to fund medical treatment for a 10-month-old Labrador mix dumped and left for dead after being used for dog baiting.
The Doghouse Sanctuary in Banbridge has been raising money for the dog – which they have named Oscar – after he was found yesterday (Sunday).
This evening the big-hearted volunteers at the Sanctuary report that Oscar is still in a critical condition.
They provided an update on his condition via Facebook, reporting: “He is receiving everything the vets can give him. He knows we are there as he follows us with his eyes.”
The Doghouse Sanctuary was contacted yesterday after the Labrador mix was found dumped.
They reported: “This dog has been used as a bait dog for fighting and is the worst case of cruelty and injuries that our vet has witnessed in 24 years as a vet.”
The sanctuary posted graphic pictures, saying they felt the need to share and make them public to highlight poor Oscar’s suffering.
Oscar had been left in a condition similar to being in a coma.
The Doghouse Sanctuary is very grateful for the support and help to date.
“We would like to give a massive thank-you to all of you who donated to help Oscar and in particular a huge thank-you to Massimo from Iveagh Veterinary Practice for his immense effort to save Oscar,” they posted.
The sanctuary also made an appeal to all: “We desperately need your help to raise emergency funds for his vet care.”

And keep up with the vital work of those who have made it their mission to save Oscar.
