Turtle Update! Fundraiser raises $6,000 for bait dog’s medical care

Hallmark Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce that its recent fundraiser to help a severely wounded dog named Turtle was a great success. Organizers raised more than $6,000 to support the Animal Rescue League of Boston and its care of Turtle.

Believed to have been used as a bait dog, Turtle was discovered abandoned by the side of the road with severe bite wounds and bone fractures last month. The Animal Rescue League of Boston’s rescue team rushed her to Veterinary Emergency Treatment & Specialties in Walpole, where she received the emergency care she needed. Thankfully, she is now doing very well. While her road back to health will take time, her doctors expect a full recovery. She is currently being cared for at the home of her veterinarian.

“Turtle remains the sweet, gentle girl she was when we found her,” said Jennifer Woolscroft, communications director for the Animal Rescue League of Boston.

“I’m so amazed by the wonderful dedication and care that the Animal Rescue League provides to animals in dire need,” said Leslie Mann of Hallmark Sotheby’s International Realty. “We are deeply touched by the outpouring of support from residents in our own community, and across the country, who heard about Turtle’s story and reached out to help. A special thanks to our generous sponsors, Merry Perry Design of QuincySpynergy Cycling Studio of Wellesley, and Winslow, Evans & Crocker of Boston, for helping us raise much needed funds for this wonderful cause.”

The $6,000 raised will be used to help pay for Turtle’s medical expenses, which exceeds $10,000. The organization continues to accept donations on her behalf at
