Thursday, February 10, 2011 ABMC Rescue had to decide if Raccoon could be helped. Surrendered to a shelter, where he was a frequent visitor, his latest escape had resulted in his being hit by a vehicle and they were not willing to pay what repairing his injuries would cost. Thanks to donations from a number of our supporters, that covered part of the expense, we were able to commit the funds needed for Raccoon to have his surgery.

Raccoon has had his surgery and is healing very well in his temporary foster home. However, ABMC Rescue is having difficulty finding a permanent foster home for Raccoon.

If you are in the California area and are willing to foster Raccoon visit our foster page to read about Raccoon and file a foster application. We must have a *new* foster home no later then mid-March.

He recently had his staples removed and the prognosis is good. His temporary foster home reports March 2011: “His weight is good, no more vet visits scheduled at this time, there is some moderate at-home PT but he should just keep improving his use of both legs and should get stronger and he should gradually become more mobile”
