In a very poor rural county in Northern Mississippi the stray dogs are often shot, or thrown into outdoor concrete kennels with only open ended barrels for warmth. In this area temperatures have remained below freezing for the past week, and at night get as low as 8 degrees, yet there were 6 dogs, freezing to death in this kennel. The sheriff of this town announced that he would shoot the dogs after the New Year if they hadn't frozen to death first. We heard about this nightmare of a situation and sent one of our volunteers down there to save as many as she could.

Thats where we found Turner. This 18 month old lab/pit mix was shivering in his kennel, his water frozen solid, his food gone. But when he saw people coming to save him, he immediately started wagging his entire butt and jumping on his cage. Regardless of the hardship Turner faced in his early life this boy is a dream dog. He was exceptional in the car on the way to the vet, played with the cats and other dogs while at the vet, and gave everyone kisses who came his way. As soon as our volunteer met this amazing dog we committed to doing whatever it took to save his life.

Unfortunately Turner has ocular dermatoid under his left eye lid. This is a mass made up of skin and hair that he's probably had since birth. If we don't take him to a surgeon ASAP to get it removed Turner will more than likely go blind, and he will always be in tremendous pain. We have a top surgeon who is willing to do his surgery for $1,500 and getting Turner pain free is worth every penny. 

Please donate to this happy boy's surgery. He spent weeks in an outdoor kennel in below freezing weather and survived. We can help him survive this.
