Forest came to North Shore Animal League America in heartbreaking condition. He had been severely neglected and then abandoned in a vacant parking lot.
His coat was filthy and matted, leaving his ears and skin infected. Both of his front legs have orthopedic problems including dislocated elbows. One paw had actually been strangled when his unkempt hair was allowed to wrap around it. He also had dental disease. And Forest is blind in both eyes. We cleaned him, shaved his coat to an appropriate length, treated his wounds and dental issues, and he was fitted with a front-limb cart so he can move comfortably. He was then put into our Foster Care Program to rest and recover. One thing is for sure: Forest will have everything he needs to lead a happy, healthy life because of his Sponsors. Thank you!
