Dr. Bob Zepecki, the veterinarian caring for "Jack," said thousands of dollars in donations are needed to pay for surgery that could cost more than $5,000.

The arrow miraculously missed Jack's brain, eyes, and major nerve endings, and struck the only place that wouldn't leave any permanent damage.

“After all of that, somehow he is still alive," Zepecki told FOX16 in Little Rock. "All his sensory nerves are intact and that's the miracle, the miraculous part of all this."

The shaft of the arrow has been removed, but can't stay there forever, Zepecki said.

The vet said he hoped to raise enough money by Tuesday to perform surgery on Thursday.
