The Rossmoyne Animal Emergency Trauma Center in Cumberland County is seeking help for a dog who was severely injured in a fire.

On Saturday, March 1, Cody, was trapped in a house in Aspers,  Adams County, as it burnt to the ground.  Everything in the home was lost, including Cody's littermate.

Cody was found by fireman several hours after the fire. Cody had severe damage to his entire respiratory system. His mouth, nasal passages, trachea, and lungs were also harmed. His eyes were also cloudy and dry.

Cody also suffered a large burn covering the entire right side of his body.

He remains in the care of Rossmoyne Animal Emergency Trauma Center. Veterinarians say his lungs and airway are improving, but his burn wounds and eyes are worsening.

The Center has donated time, medications, blood tests, xrays, and equipment to help the dog. But the center is seeking help for the family, who cannot afford treatments for Cody.

If you would like to help, the center has set up an Emergency Fund at Members 1st Federal Credit Union under Rossmoyne Animal Emergency Trauma Center. The center asks you to note Cody on all donations. You may also drop off donations at the hospital or mail them. Rossmoyne Animal Hospital sets up fund for dog injured in fire
