ANIMAL charity Rain Rescue is appealing for donations to help an amputee dog - after the abandoned pet developed an infection and needed costly medical treatment.
The organisation, which is based in Rotherham but which looks after unwanted animals from across South Yorkshire, had to take Brock to the emergency vets.
He had developed an infection in the stump of a leg which had to be amputated after a road accident in Barnsley, and needed treatment including being put on a drip.
Louise Gadsby, from Hillsborough, and a volunteer at Rain Rescue, said: “He was shivering, cold, sick and frightened and it was absolutely heartbreaking. Luckily, he is doing a lot better now.
“We still have a special appeal for help with his vet care as he will not be adopted until he is fit and well.”
■ People can help cover the cost of Brock’s ongoing care by texting Brok00 and then any amount between £1 and £10 to 70070, or can call into the charity’s shop on Northern Avenue, Arbourthorne, Sheffield.
