Caci: Transformation of beaten dog will leave you speechless
In April 2017, we launched a campaign to raise the funds for Caci, a precious pitty who had been beaten and left to die on the streets of Puerto Rico. Caci was rushed to the emergency hospital for life-saving treatment. She appeared to have suffered severe head trauma and rescuers were told that sadly her 2 babies were thrown away in a box!
New York Bully Crew was asked by Pit Bulls Rescue Survivors Inc. in Puerto Rico if they could help with emergency medical treatment. NYBC could not turn their backs on her. She was alone and in pain! Who does this to an animal?!
Caci was in bad shape. Her eyes were swollen shut. Her head had nearly doubled in size do to swelling. Doctors and emergency staff were doing everything possible to save her.
But Caci and her rescuers did not give up! The swelling on the left side of Caci’s head started to decrease due to the placement of the drains. The right side continued to be swollen. This was an hour by hour case because of all the possible variables that might have caused this condition.
Laser therapy began for Caci to help the swelling and promote healing. Caci had necrotic, dead tissue along her throat area that needed to debride. She also had a high burden of parasites and a bacterial infection for which she started treatment. The necrotic tissue had started to slough off of her throat area and she still needed to be treated for other issues but her future was finally starting to look bright!
Caci started to recover both emotionally and physically but she still had months of healing to do.
Once the swelling dminished substantially and she was stable enough for transport, Caci made her way up to New York Bully Crew for continued treatment and TCL. After months of treatment and care, Caci was adopted!
Today, Caci lives with her new family in New Jersey. Caci does not even look like the dog she was when rescuers rushed her to the hospital.
Thanks to all of you who purchased the animal-saving shirts, bracelets and totes to help save Caci. She certainly had a huge family around the nation fighting for her.
