The plight of Greg – the staffy-cross left brain damaged after he ingested marijuana – has generated thousands of dollars for the Wollongong Animal Rescue Network.
The Mercury shared Greg’s story – one of a dog left blind, deaf and disorientated by seizures that carers say are the result of cannabis consumption – at the weekend.
Coupled with a social media appeal for financial help, WARN has received about $3000 in donations. Founder Naomi John said Greg was on the mend, largely thanks to an increase in medication.
“We’ve just got to wait a couple of weeks and we’ll be able to get him desexed, and hopefully have him up for adoption,” Ms John said.
Donations are a vital part of the WARN’s ongoing care for animals in need.
“We have adoption fees but they don’t cover our costs,” Ms John said.
