They signed him over to the Campbell County pound, where the sweet-natured pooch proceeded to steal the hearts of the members Friends of Campbell County Animal Control. Despite agonizing pain from his torn ligaments and dislocated hip, Mack, a 65-pound, 3-year-old shepherd-border collie mix, is a great dog.
Concerned folks in Campbell County took to Facebook seeking help for Mack, and the volunteers at Angels of Assisi stepped up.
“He’s very gentle and affectionate,” said Jess Kraybill, a spokeswoman for Angels of Assisi.
Mack is now in a Roanoke-area foster home, recovering from knee surgery and awaiting a much-needed surgery to fix his hip. His medical costs could exceed $3,000, and Angels is seeking donations to help Mack’s cause.
Once he’s properly healed from all his injuries, he will be eligible for adoption.
For more information or to send a few bucks Mack’s way, call 344-8707, mail a donation to 415 West Campbell Ave., Roanoke, 24016 or visit angelsofassisi.org.
