Marvel has been adopted!
Marvel, the lab mix that came to us just after Christmas as a gun shot victim, has been adopted.
Marvel’s condition improved quickly, and he should not have any long lasting ill effects from the many bullets there were visible on his x-rays. Thanks to Cari for stepping up to foster this great dog. You literally saved his life!
Also a big thanks to Meredith and Justin, who were deeply touched by Marvel’s story and decided to give this wonderful dog a loving furever home. Another success story!

Update – Marvel
Lab mix shot multiple times on Christmas Day.
Marvel is completely riddled with buckshot . This is just one radiograph , they are throughout his body. Marvel is still being observed 24 hours a day at Blue Pearl. His breathing is especially being watched. Marvel has free air in the chest and prominent bruising in his lungs. He is stiff and painful as you can imagine. When standing he is wobbly from nerve damage. There is a pocket of fluid building under his armpit . He also is not able to properly place his front right foot , most likely from nerve damage as well. Exploratory surgery is still a possiblity, especially if additional fluid builds up or if pellets shift and cause additional problems. We have been told Marvel is not out of the woods . We are keeping him comfortable , he is on IV antibiotics and pain medications. Please keep Marvel close to your heart , he needs us all….
Our thanks to Dr. Kim Lucy and all of the staff at Blue Pearl.
Our bill for Marvel and the many other cases that we have will be quite high .Donations would be greatly appreciated .
Donations may be made on our website at www.thearrowfund.org and checks may be sent to The Arrow Fund P.O.Box 1127 Prospect, Kentucky 40059.
Fosters are also needed and foster applications are on our website as well. We have not yet received any foster applications and are still looking for a foster for this boy.
As I said before, abuse knows no season. It happens at any time. Please consider being a champion for The Arrow Fund , please help us any way that you can. These victims of severe abuse matter … they all matter.
Peace to you all and thank you for your support !
