Bobby Ray was brought to our office on March 24th by a kind samaritan, Maureen, and Silver Spring Police Officer Miller. He suffered several traumatic injuries (presumably from being hit by a car) including a spinal cord injury, lung contusions, and a fractured elbow, in addition to being malnourished. Bobby Ray had a guarded prognosis initially, but after just a few days of intensive treatment, his condition dramatically improved! Bobby Ray continues to heal and gain weight daily and he successfully underwent surgery to fix his broken elbow earlier this week. Dr. Richards and the WMVH team are dedicated to providing him the veterinary care he requires.
Bobby Ray's photo was shared on Find Toby in PA's Facebook page in hopes of locating his owners. There was an overwhelming response from this community to collect donations to cover the costs of his medical care. Bobby Rahal dealership also made a very generous donation of $2,000 and so far over $4,000 has been raised! WMVH appreciates every single donation that has been made to Bobby Ray! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Donations can be made at any Member's 1st Federal Credit Union location (mention Bobby Ray/Willow Mill Veterinary Hospital) or at the WIllow Mill Veterinary Hospital.
