Oklahoma soldier, rescue groups come together to help dog heal
OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma soldier came to the rescue of an injured German Shepherd and now other animal rescue groups are joining in the effort.
“Trooper”, a 4-year-old German Shepherd, was found in freezing temperatures on I-40 outside of Oklahoma City, between McLoud and Harrah.
His rescuer, CPT Canada Cortesio, said the German Shepherd, “just happened to have his head raised up just right and I caught a glimpse.”
Cortesio took “Trooper” to the Animal Emergency Center.
It is apparent “Trooper” has been hit by a car and his shattered pelvis needs a very expensive surgery in order for him to walk again, approximately $4,000.
The Bella Foundation and Safe Haven Animal Rescue have set up a fund to help raise money for his surgery.
Rescuers are also searching for Trooper’s owners, and hope to reunite them soon.
