We will never know what exactly happened to her but this is the condition in which HOPE was found by the side of the river, far away from any residencial development. An area where anything could happen to a lone helpless dog.
Hope´s injuries are consistent with multiple cars crashing against her little body and dragging her through the pavement, but there is more… there are areas that have clearly been torn by animal jaws. Her legs are covered in bites.
Hope was nearly dead when we got her…. but the moment we put her in the car, her little tail started to wag. She was then rushed to a nearby hospital in order to perform emergency stabilising procedures.
She knew… she knew we would stop at nothing to save her life..
Hope´s injuries defy description. I have been rescuing injured animals for over a decade and hers are the worst traumatic injuries I have ever seen.
Hope has multiple fractures as well as extensive areas of muscle mass and connective tissue loss. Infection is quickly spreading, her blood levels are terrible. We need to wait one or two days until she is stabilised, but if we wait too long, she will die of septic shock.
PLEASE WATCH CAREFULLY HER RESCUE VIDEO…
This is one of the most challenging cases we´ve ever worked on, and it´s LIFE or DEATH.
This is a one-in-a-lifetime rescue. Most organisations would not hesitate and euthanize her. We are different. We know with the right medical team on her side, Hope will survive.
JOIN TEAM HOPE… Please help us save her life… PLEASE DONATE towards her SURGERY AND LIFE-SAVING TREATMENT!
P.S. After her surgeries and rehabilitation is over Hope is going to need an amazing home, a new beginning in life. Please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe you are that family.
