DON QUIXOTE – A1033816
**GONE 4/21/15 ** – NEEDS PLACEMENT BY 6PM TODAY!!!
Don Quixote is one brave fellow. Poor guy was found on the street after having been hit by a car. Our transport team took him in as carefully as they could as little Don was in quite a bit of pain. He was not able to move his hind limbs and our medical staff suspect a fracture to the pelvis. Even through all this pain Don Quixote still manages to return the love when we give it. He only allows minimal handling due to the pain, but still accepts a little head rub and scratching. Come help this young fellow from MACC quickly and bring him to a hospital so he can get the medical attention he need today!
