Against All Odds: Ziggy’s Remarkable Recovery

Last month, one of our partners sent us an urgent plea: they needed our help to save Ziggy, a sweet dog cruelly shot in the face by a heartless human. Thanks to the incredible support of generous donors like you, we were able to raise the necessary funds to ensure that Ziggy could receive the critical care he needed.

We rushed the funds to the veterinary team, allowing them to immediately conduct blood tests, x-rays and administer strong antibiotics to fight off infection and painkillers to ease his suffering.

The odds were undeniably stacked against Ziggy, but we refused to give up on him. The dedicated veterinary team provided round-the-clock care, leaving no stone unturned to help Ziggy regain enough strength for a crucial and life-saving surgery. 

The operation, lasting 2.5 hours, was successful, and Ziggy is now on the road to recovery. He is still receiving treatment for Leishmania and Ehrlichia, and the team is hopeful that they will be able to save Ziggy’s vision in one eye. 

Despite everything he’s endured, he is still loving and trusting and enjoys showering his caring medical team with affectionate cuddles and kisses.

Ziggy’s substantial facial wound couldn’t be closed conventionally, so he underwent a life-changing skin graft procedure. This transformative surgery will aid in his healing process.

While a second surgery is in the cards for Ziggy in the coming weeks, the veterinary team is optimistic that, with time to heal, he will go on to lead a healthy and joyous life. We can’t wait until Ziggy is fully recovered and able to find a loving home.
