At just two months old, little Hotch allegedly suffered mistreatment by the person he loved the most... the person who was supposed to keep him safe. On Thursday, December 29th, Hotch's femur was shattered due to blunt force trauma. He couldn't get up; remaining motionless on the ground, confused and in pain.
Eastlake Police were notified after a Good Samaritan reported the suspected abuse. Hotch was brought to LHS and we had to act fast. He was then given radiographs and emergency surgery.
We are thankful that Eastlake Police involved us when they did, and Hotch began his road to recovery. This is only the start of his healing journey...
Hotch will be getting radiographs every 2 weeks until his femur is healed. After this, another operation will be required, as the plate will most likely need to be removed since he is a growing puppy. Hotch will be on pain medication throughout the process and will need special care, as he will be on cage rest. His recovery will take 4-6 weeks.
Hotch is the poster child for a 'golden retriever'- He is loving, sweet, bashful, and ready to start his new life with a loving family.
Following the surgery, this sweet pup will spend weeks recovering in his foster home until he is ready to find his forever home.
Please donate today towards Hotch's treatment and giving this little boy the wonderful life he deserves. Hotch is counting on us, and we cannot help him without you.

Tank came to LHS as part of an animal cruelty investigation. Upon examination, it was found that he was most likely part of a dog fighting ring. Tank suffered from severe trauma to his left eye, a swollen and infected front leg and bite marks all over his body
A good samaritan brought Lucy to LHS back in December of 2019 after she was hit by a car. She suffered multiple abrasions and trauma all over her body and it was determined that her front leg was paralyzed. Due to her paralysis, she underwent surgery to amputate her leg.
Emaciated and suffering, Sparky was found by a Good Samaritan and brought to Lake Humane Society for immediate medical attention. His body condition score was rated a 2 out of 9...with 1 being the worst score an animal can have.
