“I 𝙥𝙖𝙣𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙙 and sᴄʀᴇᴀᴍᴇᴅ. Then my dad just came running, and I just told him, ‘Dad, he has an arrow in his ʜᴇᴀᴅ!'” Stacee told KENS5 News.
The family immediately called the 𝙎𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙛𝙛’𝙨 office and drove Boomer to the animal hospital. The vet told them that Boomer was fortunate as the arrow had ʀɪᴄᴏᴄʜᴇᴛᴇᴅ off his sᴋᴜʟʟ and gone straight through to the other side. It had, however, 𝙛𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚𝙙 his ᴏʀʙɪᴛᴀʟ ʙᴏɴᴇ and ɴᴀsᴀʟ ᴄᴀᴠɪᴛʏ.

“We did not expect this to ʙʟᴏᴡ up the way it did, but we are so glad to let you know that it helped us start an ɪɴᴠᴇsᴛɪɢᴀᴛɪᴏɴ to bring to light the person that did this to Boomer and to cover ALL of Boomer’s medical bills,” she continued. “We can’t thank you, guys, enough.”
