A shelter contacted Second Chance Rescue to ask if they would be able to save a few dogs. The shelter sent rescuers several photos to choose which of the few dogs they would be able to rescue. When rescuers at Second Chance Rescue have 8 pairs of eyes staring from behind a photograph asking to be helped, they could not take just a few. Many of the dogs rescued by Second Chance Rescue have medical issues that need to be addressed.
Millie, one of the dogs rescued, is beyond critical. When we heard what had happened to her, rescuers were all shocked.Her owner's husband murdered her and buried her in the yard where Millie was chained with several other dogs. He is now in jail. This is an active case, we aren't privy to anymore information than what the rescue has disclosed.
Her health was declining fast at the shelter, and Second Chance Rescue knew they needed to rush her to the hospital. She is very sick and would likely die without intervention. We do not yet know what Millie has been through, but given what happened to her owner, we know her life to this point has likely not been good.
She had been at the shelter for 3 weeks with her health rapidly declining. She was pooping blood & vomiting - faster than the shelter could keep cleaning it. Her belly is very distended. The shelter got her to a local vet for basic diagnostics and fluids but she is getting worse very fast. But, Second Chance Rescue needed to act quickly and that they did.
Last night, a miracle happened for Millie, she went #2. I don't think anyone in the history of rescue has ever been so happy to see a dog take a poop. The entire hospital erupted in glee, they took photos of this prodigious event & sent them over instantly. Millie is 2 yrs old, heartworm positive & weighs only 27 lbs. She has a long ways to go before she makes a full recovery.
This will take a village to save Millie and the other dogs rescued. Second Chance Rescue needs your help today to save the 8 dogs.
