Fixing Kix! We Need Your Help.

Kix came to us through a good samaritan who found him wandering as a stray. He was only 10 weeks old. His skull had been fractured in several places with infected wounds, likely from having his head bitten by a larger dog when he was still a tiny puppy. The wounds had already started to heal, which means nothing can be done to correct his deformity. He has gone through a tough time, battling infection with a series of antiobiotics and warm wet compresses to drain the wounds. The alternative was to drill a hole through his skull and sinus bone to attempt to drain the green discharge, which could have killed him.

Kix is already doing so much better but he needs further medical treatment. A stent will be placed in the nasolacrimal duct draining tears from the eye. It appears to have been damaged from the original injury and subsequent infection. Again, some of the damage is likely to be permanent. We would like to raise $750 towards Kix’s treatment and continued care. Paws is a 501(c)(3) non profit and all proceeds will go towards Kix.

Paws Animal Rescue is our business name but we are registered as the Pierre-Fort Pierre Area Humane Society Inc., so all donations through Paypal go directly to us. Kix is currently on medical hold and not available for adoption. Thank you all in advance for your much-needed and valued support.

      Hi Maddi, we are not sure exactly when it will be. Feel free to send in an adoption application or fill one out online to get a head start. We will likely get a lot of apps for Kix and will evaluate the best home for his needs. Thank you. 🙂
