    This is Crash. He was brought to us after being dragged from a moving pick-up truck. He has sustained permanent tissue damage to all four extremities but is showing amazing resilience! His treatment and recovery are extensive and costly.

    We are starting a special fund to ensure he has every resource available to him. Your donations will be greatly appreciated! Please help Crash!

    To donate to Crash's Fund please call Alaqua Animal Refuge at 850-880-6399 or donate online at index.htm (please indicate it is for Crash's Fund) or you can mail a check to:

    Alaqua Animal Refuge
    c/o Crash's Fund
    914 Whitfield Rd
    Freeport, FL 32439

    Thanks!

    The eyes are the windows of the soul.

    His eyes tell the story....and it's heart breaking. Besides money is there another way to help?

    What's going to happen to the person who dragged him behind the pickup truck?

    He was dropped off by strangers who claimed to have found him on the side of the road in that condition.

    ....let me guess--they were driving a pick-up?

    I wanna believe that it really was unintentional and the folks just didn't have the cash to fix the pup up and tried to do the right thing...bless them and you for helping the pup.

    The DeFuniak Herald wil run an article on Crash tomorrow. Hopefully AAR will receive enough to cover his therapy and treatments. Thanks for posting his story.

    Thanks for all the support! Crash is doing great! I visited him today and he just thumped his tail to say he is happy and recovering well! He has received such an outpouring of support. Thanks to all have donated! Pics tomorrow.

    Healing nicely. It will take some time for him to be 100%. Will keep you posted!

    FYI, the article in the NWF Daily News said we had a team of veterinarians. Not true. The real story is that we have ONE amazing Bethany onsite who works tirelessly to care for all our animals. She could use some awesome vet-inclined help!
