From Lucinda Herring in Langley:
I hit a chocolate lab male dog, not neutered, older, on Coles Road
(tonight) Monday the 23rd. I never saw him but felt the impact and
heard him yelling and found him. Please, if you know of anyone who
owns such a dog, please get in touch with me. I drove him to Dr.
Moody in Coupeville after hours (an equine vet who is the only
emergency after hours vet on the island) The dog possibly has a broken
leg or hip and needs x rays. He is stable and not in a life
threatening situation, but obviously in pain and needs attention. He
is comfortable tonight, but it is crucial that we find the owner
immediately. He has a blue collar and was tethered to a wire and
metal rope that rusted through and broke. That is why he was loose.
He is not microchipped and has no tags. Please send this around to
anyone who may know the owner of this dog. He is very sweet and
loving, and has obviously been loved.
I don't want to have to send him to WAIF or Animal Control, and he
will need immediate vet assistance for his leg. Please send out the
word to as many people as you can.
Thank you, Lucinda
