WOODBURY – A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for Skippy the Pup, a 15-lb. dog who was severely injured earlier this month in what was described as “an unprovoked vicious attack by a larger dog.”
According to the campaign, Skippy clung to life as Woodbury Animal Control Officer Judy Umstead, upon arriving at the scene, rushed him to the Watertown Animal Hospital.
Skippy suffered extensive life threatening injuries, and has since endured countless surgeries. The GoFundMe campaign was set up to help cover extensive costs associated with Skippy’s ongoing veterinary expenses and what will be countless hours ahead of rehabilitation due to the massive injuries to not only muscle but ligaments and tendons, as well as kidney care.
Once Skippy is well enough to be released from Watertown Animal Hospital, he will be going to a new forever home.
According to the campaign, the Town of Woodbury has exhausted its veterinary care budget, which is why the campaign-starter is looking to raise $6,000 to help pay for Skippy’s medical care.
