Ginger was nearly decapitated from an embedded chain her owner left her in.
Warning. This is a horrendous case of abuse. Our friends at Troy Animal Rescue received an urgent request to save a dog from an animal cruelty case in Enterprise, AL. The owner was forced to surrender her due to the obvious signs of neglect and abuse seen by animal control. She was taken an emergency vet where she was stabilized. The Police Department is currently investigating the case and charges are likely to come against the owner. Due to the nature of criminal cases, we won’t be able to comment further - as we do not want to hinder any law enforcement efforts.
About 10 minutes ago, this sweet girl left Colony Vet headed toward Troy Animal Clinic for extensive care. Her name is Ginger and she was close to becoming decapitated from one of the worst embedded collar cases they have seen. Although her wounds are deep and painful, she wags her tail and looks for love. It is heartbreaking. As deep and surrounded by infection as this wound is, it has taken months to happen. Months of constant pain. How can she still be so sweet when people inflicted such cruelty into her? To say we need your help is an understatement.
Embedded chains take months to get this bad and months to heal. Ginger will be in TARP high medical needs program for several months. During these months, they will incur an enormous amount of vetting bills - including a major one today from her first visit.
Ginger spent the night at Troy Animal Clinic. Their doctor is evaluating the best course of treatment - as the wound is extremely deep. She is still wagging her tail and looking for love - even though she is hurt so badly. We will keep everyone updated on her progress. Good thoughts and prayers appreciated. The animal abuse case against her "owner" is still active so we cannot comment more but know justice will be served.
This is where we are asking for your help! Her care will cost in the thousands. That is just not the type of funds Troy Animal Project has. We have stepped in to help in our own little way. We have created the Animal Abuse Awareness shirts, hoodies, totes and bracelets you see below. We ask that if you would consider one of these items for your Christmas gift list. It's a great gift to give to family and you get to tell them they helped save Ginger's life!
