A stray dog was discovered roaming the desert, alone and struggling, after being blinded by porcupine quills. Thankfully, Willy received the help he needed from compassionate individuals who rescued him. In a rural eastern Utah area, a woman stumbled upon the poor pooch in dire condition. Dehydrated, malnourished, and infested with fleas, Willy also suffered from severe injuries to both eyes, likely caused by untreated porcupine quills that had been embedded for an extended period of time. The Community Animal Welfare Society (CAWS) reported his condition. However, with proper care, Willy is now on the road to recovery.
Willy, a helpless dog, was discovered in the vast Utah desert, experiencing excruciating pain and thirst. Upon seeing his pitiful state, Community Animal Welfare Society (CAWS), the oldest animal rescue group in Utah, was deeply concerned. In a Facebook post, CAWS expressed their distress over Willy’s condition, revealing that he had been wandering around aimlessly and was now blind. The volunteer team of CAWS promptly sprung into action to provide aid to this homeless and desperate dog.
Willy was found with porcupine quills all over his body. However, the Community Animal Welfare Society (CAWS) found that Willy was grateful to be saved. CAWS said that there was good news despite the bad news. Willy was a very sweet, kind, and patient puppy who always wagged his tail when they talked to him. CAWS was able to raise enough money for his surgery with the help of their generous supporters. Sadly, the doctors were unable to save Willy’s eyes due to the large amount of quills that had to be removed from his eyes, face, and feet.
Willy has greatly improved since his eye surgery, thanks to the efforts of the Community Animal Welfare Society (CAWS).
Oh dear, Willy is not doing well!
Willy is currently receiving treatment and rehabilitation under the care of Tiffany Henline, an experienced CAWS foster parent. According to the group’s Facebook post, Willy is recovering well from his surgery and has settled into his temporary home with ease. He is now a happy boy who is feeling much better. After Willy is completely healed, he will be available for adoption. If you are interested in adopting him or supporting Community Animal Welfare Society, please visit their website.
