Alexa was hit by a car after dodging semi's! Bullets were found in Xrays.

 

This is a sick and twister story. The more we learn about this case the more I lose hope in humanity. The Claxton ACO/Sheriff asked if a rescue could step up to save a dog who was in a lot of pain. STARS Ga stepped up to take her in. She has been rushed to their vet for emergency treatment.

Apparently Alexa was hit by a pick up truck, while dodging semi trucks and who ever hit her just kept driving. The worst part is she was also shot multiple times.

Almost every bone in her rear is fractured. Her pelvis, fibula, femur and one side is worse than the other. Her hip is out of socket at one side and the emergency vet MIGHT be able to put back in place. Rescuers have no idea at this point if her bladder has been compromised or not. X-rays also showed that she has been shot. Yes you read that right. Doctors found bullets in her body...

Alexa will be staying at the emergency clinic for observation, pain drip and more test. She remains in critical condition but doctors will not stop until she is stable. She will not be able to undergo the multiple surgeries needed until she is stable. She is sedated and on heavy doses of pain medications to manage the pain.


UPDATE 1-28-17: Alexa is still being kept comfortable on the pain drip. She is eating well and sleeping a lot. Below are the recommended procedures and the estimate. "It looks as though she has a right ilial and acetabular fracture and aleft hip luxation. The ilial fracture can potentially be repaired; however, the acetabular fracture is comminuted, so we will need toperform an FHO on that hip. The left hip can be stabilized with atoggle. FHO is also an option. I would recommend attempting to toggle the left hip as this will give him better or more consistent function of this leg so that he can compensate for the other side that has more severe injuries. The other pelvic injuries do not require surgical repair". Estimate for this surgery would be around $4000-$4500.

We need your help to raise the funds needed so STAR can give her the care she deserves. They took on this case with no idea how horrible this has turned out to be! Her bill will be in the thousands but we are here to help! Everything you see on this page from a t-shirt, hoodie, tote or bracelet all trigger a donation in honor of saving tiny Alexa. They need are help so they can continue to save animals like her. Please, if you can, purchase on of her items. I know she can make it through this to overcome her abuse!
