I found Lazarus lying on the side of the road on 9/27/01 at 5:30 in the afternoon. From neighbors we've learned that he had been there for at least 10 hours and a minimum of 500 people passed him as he lay there needing help so badly.

This poor guy was hit by a vehicle which snapped both his femurs. In addition, he was suffering from anemia, had blood in his abdomen, had a toxic liver, has survived distemper, had been attacked viciously by another dog, and was covered with mange on over 70% of his body.

Lazarus is only six months old.

We were urged to consider euthanasia, but considering what a fighter this pup was, we couldn't give up unless he was ready to therefore we made sure he was free of pain and then prepared for a long battle. Over the weekend, Lazarus has been eating well, his blood counts have risen, and his liver is improving. The vets did a mild treatment for the mange and we are preparing for surgery tomorrow afternoon. (Oct. 2)

If this dog makes it through the surgery then we are planning on months of rehabilitation and long efforts to build trust. At this time we have raised almost five hundred dollars for his treatment but it likely end up costing between 4 and 5 thousand dollars so we are requesting donations for the Lazarus fund. One hundred percent of these donations will go directly to his care.

New Hope Sanctuary for the Animals is a rescue, haven, and adoption organization for abused, tortured, and abandoned innocent animals and pets. We are based on the Christian principles that God intended humans to follow as guardians of His creation.  We are a not-for-profit welfare, protection, rescue, rights organization dedicated to the compassionate care of stray and abandoned cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, litters, and farm animals (chickens, pigs, etc.).  We encourage people to adopt and provide kind and loving care for a cat, dog, kitten, puppy, or litter, as well as to   promote humane population control through spaying and neutering.  We are involved in direct action in rescuing and placing animals within a network of animal groups across the nation, and in increasing public awareness and education about the abuse, torture, factory farming, slaughtering, butchering and the murder of innocents, and the need to spay and neuter.  Through the media, special events, and publications we   promote anticruelty, love, compassion, mercy, respect, and kindness towards all animals, animal theology, and compassionate alternatives to animal products.
