The "Rollo" Cause
Organized by: Aimee Meche
We rescued Rollo when he was only 1 1/2 weeks old. We hand raised him in our laps. He is now 9 months old. This past Sunday we had kid day at the house. I had to run to the store to pick up the pizza's and get icee's. While I was gone my neighbor over 300 ft. away shot at our Rollo,hitting him in his knee,blowing it completely off and the bullet ripped under his front leg leaving A 4" long and 2" deep wound. He has been totally mutilated. Rollo was in the field next to my house,whigh belongs to my inlaws. They had no problem with him being there. As everyone knows Rollo is a loving pup. All he wants to do is roll over and have someone rub his belly,hence the name "Rollo". He is the victim of animal cruelty. A extreme act of animal cruelty. After he was shot it took him less than 30 seconds to limp to our front porch,which tells me it was done very close to the house and yard where the kids were playing. This evil man not only mutilated our pup, he also fired a gun in the direction of small children. Thank the Lord none of them was shot. But they did suffer, the shot scared them to death and then they watched Rollo fight to get to the porch. He was loosing so much blood. Rollo is my 4yr.old son's puppy. To hear him say "mommy please don't let him kill my boy puppy ". It tears me up everytime I think of him saying that. My son was distraught. He cried and cried. All I could think of was how am I going to save his boy puppy. I called the police, and the officer was extremely nice, and respectful. I know it tore him up inside when he saw Rollo and my son walked up to him and said "they shot my boy puppy". He went to the neighbors house and after a few minutes he returned letting us know the neighbor denied shooting him. We all know that was a lie. We live in the country and there is no way it could have been anyone else. So with no proof we are at a stump. So now I turn to all the animal lovers, and good people for help. I'm presently trying to get my disability, so I can't afford a vet. I'm asking everyone who is able to help to please help Rollo. He needs to get to a vet soon. I am doing the best I can to help him. And thanks to friends and family they have donated medical supplies to help me tend to him. He has such a good spirit and is fighting with us. He wants to live. He deserves to live,to live a happy dog life. My son deserves to have his boy puppy continue to grow and play with him. They have there bond,and would hate for it to get broke. Please help us help save Rollo. Anything you could do would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance, and my God bless you all.
