NAUGATUCK — Naugatuck Animal Control is seeking donations to help offset medical expenses for an abandoned Rottweiler.

The dog, which is about 2 years old, was found abandoned on Andrew Mountain Road by a resident, according to animal control. The dog, which has been named Bud, has been with animal control since Nov. 23.

Bud’s ailments included a fever, an ear infection, broken paw and mites. The dog received treatment at Naugatuck Animal Hospital on Dec. 19 and the bill came to just over $2,200. His overall medical expenses are estimated to cost at least $3,000.

If donations exceed the medical costs, any leftover funds will be used for other dogs.

People can donate by mailing checks to the Naugatuck Police Department, 211 Spring St., Naugatuck, CT 06770, ATTN: Naugatuck Animal Control. Checks can be made out to the Borough of Naugatuck with “Animal Control” in the memo line.
