Gilbert – isn’t he adorable?


This is Gilbert at 11 weeks old.  He was turned into ACT V after suffering from a dog attack which caused bite wounds and multiple broken bones.  He is a healthy, happy puppy overall, but needed surgery to set the breaks.  He has turned out to be a little booger who has so far found a way around every “cone of shame” contraption that they’ve put on him, requiring multiple fixes to stitches, bandages, and the external hardware that is part of what is holding his bones in place while they mend.  Yes, I am particularly sympathetic having previously owned a dog who was a Hou(n)dini of cone escape.

He’s healing great now thanks to ACT V, but he could definitely use some sponsors to help pay for his medical expenses.

 If you can spare a few dollars, every bit helps, and if you fill in “Gilbert” in the SPONSOR a pet field of the online donation form, all the money will go directly to his care.  You can also send a check to the address listed here and designate the donation to Gilbert’s care.  ACT V is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit.
