HERCULES HERO FUND

Donate Now and Become A Hercules Hero!

TOTAL RAISED (AS OF  9/29/17): $10,765.46




Calling all human mortals looking to lend a helping hand and become immortalized in the eyes of a precious pup in need!! Give a huge and heavenly hello to our 1 year old boy, HERCULES!! Our very own zero from the Long Beach Shelter has quickly become a Boston Buddies hero indeed but is also one handsome humble little hero in serious need. A perfectly imperfect mess, Hercules came in to the shelter as a stray in bad shape at best; his ears have been painfully cropped by previous foolish mortals, he was completely blind in one eye due to an injury left untreated, and he also had an umbilical hernia (the eye was removed and hernia repaired when he was neutered). And the lightning bolt to top of this perfect storm, Hercules suffers from congenital deformities in both of his front legs. 3D images from a CT scan show that both of Hercules paws are disconnected from his leg bones and that both leg bones are curved in an “s” shape – first bending outward and then bending inward. The orthopedic surgeon plans to fuse Hercules’ paws to his legs and then cut the curved bones and put in place a plate to straighten them out. Sounds like a massive mess for us mortals, but bless our human souls because Herc is certainly on a roll!!

The Muses, goddesses of the arts, put it perfectly in Disney’s Hercules:

“Who put the glad in gladiator, HERCULES!

Whose daring deeds are great theater?  Hercules!

Is he bold? No one braver! Is he sweet? Our fav’rite flavor!

Hercules, Hercules …”

No physical disability can diminish Hercules deep determination and no foolish mortal of the past can strip him of his superhuman sweet soul! Hercules is doing great in his foster home, learning the ways of the pack, how to respect his elders, and even use the doggy door. He gets around the house with the help of PawFriction, a product that helps him gain/maintain traction on surfaces, and we’ll tell ya he is one fast fellow! Once he undergoes surgery he should be soaring around town just as swift as Pegasus!! Super playful, insanely snuggly, and endlessly sweet—Hercules is certainly a heavenly treat!!

Between visits to the general vet, the ophthalmologist, and the orthopedic surgeon, medical expenses to help Hercules go the distance have already reached $3,100 and will steadily rise to the highest peak of Mt. Olympus by the time our hero is fully healed and rehabilitated. This is why we come to you merciful mortals, heroes happy and hoping to help, and ask for your support in donating to the HERCULES HERO FUND!! We are so humbly seeking donations to reach our goal of $15,000 to help Hercules find where he belongs for furever, happy, and HEALTHY!

BUT WAIT!  Hercules has worked his charms on a special admirer who has agreed to match all donations raised dollar for dollar up to $15,000!  That means every dollar you donate becomes two dollars for Boston Buddies! 

Check back to this page often – we will be posting the names of Hercules Heroes!  Also check out Hercules’ Facebook Photo Album on the Boston Buddies Facebook page where we will be posting photos and updates!

YOU can make a difference, YOU can be a real hero, no gift is too small – and don’t forget – your gift will be matched dollar for dollar.

Funds raised for the Hercules Hero Fund will first be used to pay for the medical care for Hercules.  Any funds raised in excess of those needed to support Hercules will be used to support the rescue efforts of Boston Buddies, which provides veterinary care, fostering and placement of abandoned and owner surrendered Boston Terriers.

Hercules went shopping for some doggie pheromones to help him relax during his recovery. He still wants to run and play and the doctor says that is a no no right now.

Hercules is trying his best to stay quiet and let his eye heal.  He can hardly wait to get the all clear to play and not have to wear the cone anymore!
