This poor baby was brought to the Stevens-Swan Humane Society as a stray with a badly broken leg. He is currently in surgery, and donations are desperately needed for his recovery.

Even though this guy must be in a ton of pain, look at the relief in his eyes for having food, medical care, and loving attention.

Stevens-Swan Humane Society tells us that Bear was found as a stray with a badly broken leg. No owners have come forward, so now he has been transferred to SSHS. He is currently at the vet having surgery to save his leg. Bear will need pins and plates put in his leg, and it will be a costly procedure. We are hoping to raise $3000 to cover the cost of surgery Xrays, bloodwork, and necessary medications. Bear will be going into foster for eight weeks after surgery, and he is not available for adoption at this time. Bear is only one year old and deserves to live a long, happy life.
