Rescuers Help Homeless Woman’s Dog With Terribly Swollen Face

Warning: The following article contains graphic content that may be upsetting to some viewers. 

Last Wednesday, a volunteer at the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter in Riverside, California, met a homeless dog who was in dire need of help…

Sol Figueiredo posted on Pit A Boo’s Facebook page, “Meet Bobo; he is a 9-year-old Pit Bull I met today outside the Goodwill in Riverside. My heart stopped when I saw his sweet face. His mommy is homeless and has been doing her best to keep him comfortable, but she needs our help. An organization that helps pets of homeless helped with a vet visit, but the vet just gave him antibiotics and steroids. No other diagnostic testing. The steroids actually made his lymph nodes swell up into golf balls. Right now his mom is giving him Motrin for the pain and a supplement called Sovereign Silver.”

According to Pet Rescue Report, Bobo’s homeless owner doesn’t want to euthanize her dog and claims that he doesn’t cry out in pain, is active, and eats, despite his horrible condition. Animal advocates couldn’t stand to see Bobo in such terrible condition, so they posted his story on You Caring and already raised almost $6,000 for Bobo’s medical care. 

“We need donations to get him to a vet as soon as possible to get him diagnosed. If this is a case of hospice, we can at least get him prescribed something stronger than Motrin to keep him comfortable. He will need to be hospitalized for a couple days for testing, possibly need surgery, the possibilities are endless for what he may need. We are starting the goal at $3000, we may need more. If you are financially blessed please consider donating. Please share Bobo so we can get him the help he desperately needs,” Bobo’s YouCaring page said. 

When Pit A Boo returned to the area looking for Bobo to give his owner the great news that the funds have been raised to transfer Bobo to an emergency veterinarian facility, but neither could be located. 

Let’s hope that Pit A Boo can find Bobo and his owner as soon as possible!
