Hit and Run Leaves Older Dog in Need of Medical Treatment


“Sam” has been in Foster care for a week now after several days of treatment at West Chester Veterinary Medical Center and he is doing very well! We would like to thank everyone who donated to support Sam and the CCSPCA. Without your contributions we couldn’t save animals like Sam and the thousands of others we care for every year.

The individual who witnessed the incident rushed the dog to West Chester Veterinary Medical Center to be seen by a veterinarian. The dog was hypothermic and unable to stand upon arrival; extensive medical treatment was required at the Emergency Center. He is currently receiving IV fluids and the staff will continue to monitor his condition.

The dog, fondly named “Sam” after the Good Samaritan who brought him to the vet, is a neutered male and estimated to be approximately ten years old. He was wearing a spiked leather collar without tags. He does not have a microchip. If anyone recognizes this dog and knows who he belongs to, please call the Chester County SPCA at 610-692-6113.

The Chester County SPCA is responsible for all of Sam’s medical expenses and will continue his care at the Animal Health Center if an owner does not come forward. Please make a donation to help Sam recover from his injuries!
