****END UPDATE ****
What breaks your heart apart and wide open? All it took was one look at this puppy sitting at the shelter so defeated and broken. She is struggling and fading fast. How could rescuers not help her and let this 7-month-old puppy just fade away into nothing. Second Chance Rescue NYC called their partners Dallas Dog R.R.R. to tag team with them to get her the heck outta the shelter and into a vet now!
One of her legs is completely broken at the femur, She is extremely weak and in guarded condition. She cannot walk. You can see every bone protruding out -- that's how emaciated she is. Her Sacroptic mange is one of the worst rescuers have ever seen and she has various painful infections. She is suffering in pain and they are trying to end that as quickly as possible. But we need your help!
Rescuers have named her Calliope, The Greek Muse of heroic poetry. This poor little pupcake, upon the surgeons reviewing her xrays yesterday, it was determined that little Calliope was hit by a car due to the severity of the multiple fractures at the hip and the growth plate. It boggles my mind that this 7 month old angel pup had to be picked up off the Hot cement streets by animal control and ended up in high kill shelter after being hit by a vehicle. She sat there looking defeated and ashamed.
The surgery can't come soon enough, she is in a lot of pain but still remains sweet...it is a very sad sight to see. We ask for your prayers of healing strength to get her through today and to conquer all of the obstacles ahead. You're a little fighter baby and we love you so much.
We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue NYC to help raise the funds needed for Calliope's recovery. We created this campaign to raise the funds needed to save this baby. Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save Calliope's life!
