Chickie: She was ran over by a car then left alone to die!
This is a graphic story and case. Each year 1.2 million dogs are killed on the roads in the United States. Chickie Milky was almost one of those tragic statistics. She was found clinging to life after being a victim of a hit and run.
Chickie Milky is a stray, and she has no one to help her or be a loving parent to her. She is a victim of a hit and run outside of a busy gas station. When Animal Control arrived to pick her up, they found her lying and bleeding out, wrapped up in a blue blanket. Her only comfort. She is petrified and her injuries are horrific.
Because her injuries were critical the shelter reached out to Second Chance Rescue NYC to take her. She would surely be euthanized without help. She has sustained fractures, road rash, head trauma, and severe wounds. We do not know the extent of her internal injuries until emergency staff are able to perform more tests. She needs to be stabilized for that.
UPDATE: Chickie is stable is being prepped for surgery to remove her mangled leg. She has a horrible distal tibial fracture on the back leg, that is the worst of all of her injuries. So sadly she will be getting her leg amputated to save her life. She is only one year old and 30 pounds so she has the strength to make it. Please continue to help us fund her surgery.
UPDATE: Chickie made it through surgery and is doing well. She is one brave girl and continues to surprise hospital staff how trusting she is of us humans, even when we fail her. She did have her leg amputated but Chickie is a strong pup with the will power to heal and live a normal life. Please continue to support Chickie's care and surgery bills for Second Chance Rescue NYC! They need our help now more than ever!
