Upon arriving at the South Florida SPCA Rescue Ranch, Tiny Tim underwent an immediate veterinary assessment.
“The best day of this pony’s life was when he arrived at the South Florida SPCA,” said Dr. Richard Templeton, the attending veterinarian.
The pony’s wounds were cleaned and treated, revealing a subluxated and possibly broken ankle. X-rays will determine the full extent of the injury, and inquiries for prosthetics are already underway.
Despite his ordeal, Tiny Tim, estimated to be around 8 years old, is now receiving proper care at the South Florida SPCA Rescue Ranch.
SPCA officials said the horse will need surgery and will likely transition to a sanctuary for horses just like him.
South Florida SPCA will be accepting donations to help take care of Tiny Tim and help pay for his medical bills and surgery. For more information, click here.
