Trapper’s Tail


Recently, we were reminded of how resilient animals can be and how many of our choices as humans can negatively impact them without us ever realizing it.
Trapper was picked up by Henderson County Animal Enforcement after being found injured on Highway 9. His leg had a significant injury to it that appeared to be caused by a coyote or bear trap due to the severity of his injury, he was taken straight away to Western Carolina Regional Animal Hospital where it was determined his leg needed to be amputated. Now that Trapper’s surgery has been completed, he is living a life of luxury in a foster home while he recovers. Life with 3 legs is all sunshine and rainbows for Trapper, he loves people and other dogs. He even gets to go to work with his foster mom to help do his part as a therapy dog, here is what his foster has to say about him:
“Trapper is one tough cookie! I can’t imagine what this poor boy went through but he is resilient while keeping a gentle, calm, and loving demeanor. He is healing and accommodating his limb loss every day – the little stinker can already do steps! He is loving a fresh start and I am happy to be a part of his journey.”
Trapper’s bill prior to surgery was estimated to be $5,000 and he will have several follow-up visits to make sure all is healing well. We are always happy to help animals in need, and we are beyond excited to watch Trapper’s journey, please consider donating towards the medical needs of Trapper or other animals that may enter our care, a little can go a long way! He is not yet available for adoption but you can email adopt@blueridgehumane.org if you have any questions about Trapper or how to adopt.
