"We strongly believe that our pets choose us for a reason, and even though Timba came to us on April 4th and died on April 4th and in between his injury happened thus the creation of K-911's Animal Ambulance was born because of our Timba boy and his legacy he left behind to help out his fellow furry friends will always be remembered."
It was the summer of 2007 when I was walking my own dog named Timba down by the St Laurent River where I played fetch with him. He was a Lab-Golden retriever mix, 7 yrs old and he was a great family dog. This one time while playing fetch, Timba came out of the water holding his paw up in the air and still holding on to his toy...
I then noticed his paw and leg were bleeding and saw the cut from his leg to his paw. I immediately took off my t-shirt and wrapped it around his leg and paw to try and stop the bleeding. I was concerned seeing that I was about a kilometer from my home, and I remembered I had my cell on me so I called a taxi immediately and then I carried Timba in my arms to Boul. LaSalle.
When the taxi driver saw the blood though the t-shirt on Timba's leg, he refused to help us and drove off. I called a family member who came and we took him to the emergency veterinary facility where they treated him. He ended up having 8 stitches.
