Dog rescued from South Jersey hose is recovering

MEDFORD, NJ —Dylan, the dog who made local headlines when he was trapped and then rescued from a Medford drainpipe, appears to be on the way to a full recovery, his caregiver says to Patch.

The last time Patch was shown a picture of Dylan, he had casts on his legs. We’re told staff at Mount Laurel Animal Hospital are working to bring down the dog’s 104-degree fever, giving him painkillers and an IV, cleaning his wounds, taking X-rays and treating a blood infection. .

A photo of Dylan taken on Wednesday (which is featured in this story) shows that although Dylan still looks tired, his casts are gone.

Shellinda Fisher-Hardie, Dylan’s caregiver and founder of Jericho’s Wish Animal Rescue, told Patch on Thursday “he’s doing so well.”

The Paypal and Vimeo accounts that were set up to cover Dylan’s medical bills brought in nearly $4,600, according to Fisher-Hardie.

These donations will sufficiently cover Dylan’s medical expenses, she said. So she will donate the rest to Southern New Jersey Humane Tracking & Trapping and the Taunton Fire Company, she said.

“All of this has restored my faith in humanity,” Fisher-Hardie wrote on her organization’s Facebook page. “Thank you from the heart.”
