Waylon the Beagle has had a rough time. We don’t know much about his earlier life but he had certainly fallen on some hard times. He probably had a home at one time because he is sweet and gentle and very well behaved. He gets along well with other dogs too. Waylon came to ARF recently, after a stay in a shelter in West Virginia. Waylon arrived there as a stray in very bad shape, with injuries possibly from being hit by a car. Poor little Waylon needed surgery to put his intestines back together and back where they belong—inside his body. He was also neutered, given all his vaccinations and had some dental work done because he had a few broken teeth.
When he recovered enough to travel, he came to ARF in the hope of finding a nice home. Upon examination by our vet, Waylon was found to have two hernias, a double hernia on his left side and a single hernia on his right side. One was extremely severe and needed immediate attention. His surgery was scheduled and after some time in the hospital, he is now “on the mend” back at ARF and ready to find his forever home.
Our adoption fee doesn’t come close to covering the cost of Waylon’s recent surgery. We at ARF would never hesitate to help Waylon or any other animal in need of serious and expensive medical care but we are asking if you, perhaps, could help us out. Any amount you can contribute to “Waylon’s Fund” would be greatly appreciated. Please send your tax-deductible donations to us at 54 Simmons Lane, Beacon, NY 12508 and mark it for WAYLON’S FUND. Thank you so much!
