Comox SPCA asking public to give Marshall a helping paw

Marshall came into SPCA care with painful sores and lesions covering most of his body.

The BC SPCA’s Comox Valley & District Branch is seeking the public’s help to cover medical costs for a puppy called Marshall.

Marshall came into SPCA care with painful sores and lesions covering most of his body and will need treatment for mange. He is underweight and in his weakened state, he developed a secondary infection.

“Marshall will need a lot of care and love to become a normal, healthy puppy,” says SPCA Comox Valley & District branch manager Emily Priestley.

Marshall will need at least six weeks recovering in an SPCA foster home before he is ready to be adopted. His total cost of care is expected to reach $1,630.

If you can help Marshall and other animals in need at the Comox Valley & District SPCA, visit spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or visit the branch at 1668 Ryan Road East, Comox, 250-339-7722.
