BRUNO GETS HELP FROM THE ANIMAL FAIRY
Animal Fairy Charities Helps Bruno with Medical Expenses
and to Find His Forever Home
MILWAUKEE, WI – Animal Fairy Charities (AFC) brings awareness of Bruno’s story to help raise needed funds for the extensive care and recovery he desperately needs. Bruno, a critically injured and abandoned puppy from Chicago, is in Milwaukee for the therapy required to save his life, allow him to recover the feeling and use of his lower extremities and enable him to walk.
Due to acute injuries suffered after his birth, Bruno was unable to use his back legs and completely unable to walk, pulling himself around using only his front legs. Because his owners didn’t want the expense of time or money to care for him, they took him away from his mother prematurely and discarded him in an alley. At approximately four weeks of age, he found himself completely alone and his new home, a garbage dump. When Bruno was discovered, he was taken to Chicago Animal Control, where a volunteer took his picture and posted it on Facebook in a plea to find a rescue. Through the mass public attention he gained, Bruno was taken in by www.castawaypetrescue.org, a 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer-based rescue, which cares for and provides medical treatment to homeless dogs. Bruno’s Facebook fans grew to 5,000 in a short time and he is currently in a loving foster home, which is trying to give him a chance at life. Despite his severe disabilities, his inability to urinate, and the vet initially delivering solemn news for his recovery or rehabilitation, his foster family and the rescue community are determined not to give up on him. His foster dad made him a wheelchair, and through daily therapy treatments, such as acupuncture and care from a vet who specializes in problems like Bruno’s, he is responding, and can now urinate and wag his tail. With extensive treatment, he is expected to make a full recovery and walk one day, however, the therapy he needs is expensive, and he needs your help.
"I was lucky enough to meet Bruno while filming a segment for Animal Advocate Television (AATV) www.animaladvocatetv.com," says Lopez. "This guy is currently with a foster mom with Castaway Pet Rescue, Inc. but will need a forever home. It is still undetermined if Bruno will ever be able to regain his strength in his lower body that would enable him to walk and/or have feeling in his lower extremities. AFC was so inspired by Bruno that we will be dedicating our premier 2012 season of AATV to him in an effort to raise funds for his medical care and to find Bruno his forever home.” Lopez added.
AFC is also offering prints of Bruno, courtesy of Brittany Farina , a talented and up-and-coming artist from Wisconsin in which 50% of all proceeds will be used to help with his medical costs.
