Initially, Frank was taken to a local vet who recommended that he be euthanized due to the severity of his injuries.

However, Jones wanted a second opinion and the vet referred Frank to the Mississippi State University Animal Health Center.

Mississippi state medics told Jones on Wednesday that Frank’s injuries were treatable, however, recovery will take a long time and cost around $ 20,000, possibly involving skin grafts.

Jones said the Chloe’s Fund will help pay for the surgery and encouraged the community to donate to the fund through PayPal at
