After being spotted by a motorist lying in a swamp in Laplace, Louisiana, a dog was rescued by a Louisiana State Trooper and an employee of Cajun Pride Swamp Tours. Now, the pair are setting a GoFundMe page for the dog, hoping to be able to get him the medical attention he needs.
Both Captain Brandon from the swamp tours and the trooper slogged through a half-a-mile of marshy swamp just to get to the dog. When they finally got close enough, it was clear that the dog had a leg injury, but otherwise seemed to be alright and actually thankful for the help.
According to the GoFundMe page set up for him, he was then taken to a local animal shelter for treatment. He is set today to be transferred to a facility better equipped to handle his injury and other medical needs. The hope is to eventually get him to the Jefferson APCA, where he will hopefully find a good forever home.
The fundraiser page is asking for $2,500 to help cover medical expenses. So far, about $1,900 of the goal has been reached. Please, if you are able, please consider donating to this very worthy cause.
