“The little guy was burned up pretty good. Even when we grabbed him, he was very distressed. I was concerned whether he would live.” – Capt. Gregg Gordon, West Palm Beach Fire Rescue
Smokey, a sweet 2-year-old dog, was chained to a tree, trapped in a brush fire. West Palm Beach Fire Rescue found him, cut the chain and saved his life.
Smokey is very lucky to be alive but he suffered very serious burns to his body. The cost of his emergency 24-hour care, special medical treatment using a hyperbaric chamber and other care will likely exceed $4,000.
When Smokey’s special treatment is complete, Capt. Gordon and his family plan to take Smokey home to foster where he will complete his recovery and healing.
