Arielle was found have seizures underneath a car!
On the eve of the house Senate passing a bill to make animal cruelty a federal felony I present to you this heartbreaking case. This little girl just came into Second Chance Rescue NYC in critical condition. She was found by a good Samaritan under a car struggling and in need of help.
The video and photos are heartbreaking but important for us to share her story and raise the support rescuers need! It appears she had a seizure and her body temperature is very low, she is also vomiting. Because she was in need of emergency care that the shelter could not provide Second Chance Rescue NYC immediately stepped in to save her!
Sadly she is only 5 years old and starting to go limp. They don't know how long this wee little girl has been suffering on her own, she is critical right now.
Today she has a name for the first time in her life. Tiny Arielle is at the Emergency Vet BluePearl and rescuers are desperately trying to stabilize her. Doctors are trying to diagnose her at the same time!
UPDATE 10/24/19: The Dr. immediately hit Arielle with everything she had in the hospital and ran diagnostics as well. Bloodwork was PERFECT and x-rays showed she had a TON of bones in her stomach, Arielle was also showing neurological deficits, they were not sure if she had head trauma at that moment. Now Arielle is up all on her own. This is the type of care that save a dog's life but her journey is just beginning.
UPDATE 10/25/19: When Second Chance Rescue NYC received the news about how well Arielle is doing, they literally had to make sure the Dr. was speaking of the same dog, Jennifer, president SCRNYC, said "Wait, Arielle? The White Fluffer who just came in?" He said "Yeah, she's rocking it out". She's alive and doing extremely well and once again, lucky to be alive. It's a great week at Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs. Arielle, you are such a strong puppy!!!
This type of care cost Second Chance Rescue hundreds if not thousands of dollars. We are here to help and sponsor some of her care.
You can sponsor her vet bills with the custom design “Never Stop Saving Animals” t-shirts, totes, water bottles and more to help raise the funds to cover Arielle’s care. Please consider one for yourself or a friend to support SCR.
