Arcadia eye is hanging from her face after being violently hit by a car.
I know this is beyond hard to see but we cannot sit by and do nothing. Arcadia has spent the last week of her life in fear, in pain, in turmoil and in agony. Last Saturday night Arcadia was left by her owners outside to fend for herself while they decided to go away for the weekend. Yes you read correctly ... Without even a second thought they just left Arcadia alone. Sadly Arcadia wandered onto the highway and got violently hit by a car.
The witness stated that Arcadia went flying into the air about 5 feet after the hit and landed on the ground unable to move with her eye popping out. For 3 hours Arcadia waited, with the witness who found her, for help and finally we were able to move her to the Emergency Vet in the middle of the night, whereby she was stabilized as she was in shock.
X-rays were taken which showed that Arcadia had a broken pelvis and her eye was obviously out of its socket. The following day Arcadia was stable enough for surgery. She had surgery to remove her eye at the Emergency Hospital. Her broken pelvis now needs to be examined by a specialist to decide if surgery is required.
This will cost thousands of dollars to repair in addition to what has already been spent on her care by Rescue Dogs Rock. To say they need our help is an understatement. Please, if you can, help us raise the funds needed for this baby girl. I know this is hard to see but we must think about Arcadia and we are focused on nothing else other than saving her life.
