Hope Update

Today, Dr. Loch put drain tubes in Hope's front legs. Sweet girl has been having trouble with infection. Hopefully, with the pus draining, her legs will begin to heal from the inside out. This is huge for little Hope! Finish Reading Her Update here : http://dogco.org/save-hope-tarp

Posted by Hendrick & Co. on Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Union Springs, Bullock County, AL: A truck pulled up in the parking lot and a man got out. He drug a lifeless dog across the parking lot and left her there. Removing her collar before leaving her there to die. He did this in the early morning knowing the shelter was closed. WOW… coward. This was caught on a surveillance camera.

TARP writes "Her prognosis is not good and we know the vetting will be in the thousands to try to save her, but this is what we do. We give all animals a chance at life."

We can't say much about the man because this is a continuing investigation and his rescue does not want to do anything that might hurt the investigation. One note about the abuser in the video is he has been identified and has spoken to Bullock County police. They are awaiting his interview with the police department to release any further information. You know I will be the first one to let you know any new info!

I am going to start off by saying that the prognosis is not good for Hope. Hope is septic from bite wounds... left untreated for at least a week. One of her legs is basically a huge puss pocket from infection. She can't even hold up her head. She can't stand...Emergency vet staff said she follows them around with her eyes and that she wants to live. I am crying as I write this.  We are all seething with anger but we must focus on saving her life.

TARP writes "We are giving her every possible chance to beat this infection but we need your help."

Earlier today, she received a plasma transfusion. This is meant to boost her ability to fight the infection. Although her white blood cell count only came up marginally, her albumin levels came up considerably. Blood work was also run and thankfully, there are no signs of organ failure from the sepsis. She had X-rays run of her head, neck, heart, lungs, and legs. Her left front leg is the one with the major infection. Once she is stabilized, that leg will have to be amputated because the infection has literally rotted to her bone.

UPDATE 11-23-16

Hope did something amazing - she ate and drank! This is a huge win for all of us supporting her! We all can't stop smiling! If she keeps eating and drinking on her own, it will help a lot in her recovery. As of earlier tonight, Hope is on IV fluids with potassium. She is on IV antibiotics. She has a regimen of another 6 different drugs - all designed to boost her systems ability to fight the infection. She is also on morphine to make sure she is feeling no pain. Literally, any measure that can be taken to help her has been. We don't want to get hopes up but good news is good news. Just keep hoping for more.

This week is critical for Hope. We ask that all of our followers please send prayers and good thoughts to her. Please share this with your friends and ask them to send their thoughts and prayers. We want this baby girl to know that she is loved and that everyone cares about her. Please continue donating and purchase in honor of Hope! I know with your help she will survive! 


UPDATE 11-25-16 

This beautiful girl is getting stronger and stronger every day! Two kind girls dropped by and brought Hope a teddy bear to keep her company. As you can see, she loved it and was even playing which is huge. This is the first time we have seen her play! Today, she took her first few steps. I can't believe it! Slowly but surely we are hoping she will get back to walking. Taylor Crossing is doing physical therapy with her daily - as well as water therapy and laser treatments for her leg wounds. 

Dr. Loch put her under anesthesia earlier today and took care of the spot where her tooth was snatched out. It has infection in it but she cleaned it out really well and stitched it up so that should help tremendously. We truly appreciate all the thoughts, prayers and donations that have come for this sweet girl. Hope still remains in critical condition but we know she can do this! With your continued help we can save her!


UPDATE 11-26-16 - NO CHARGES FILED!

Guys I wish I had better news for you. The Union Springs Police Department will NOT pressing animal abuse charges against the man who viciously dragged Hope's lifeless body after hours at a shelter parking lot. The good news is Hope is alive and healing from her ordeal. The bad news is the there will be no justice in the eye of the law. Here is the press release from Union Springs Police :

The Union Springs Police Department wrote, " Regarding Hope...the pup left at the Bullock Co Humane Society: The Union Springs Police Department was made aware of an incident that took place on Friday, November 18, 2016 at the Bullock County Humane Society. The video that was posted to the Bullock County Humane Society Facebook page has been reviewed by investigators. The City of Union Springs takes animal cruelty very seriously and all suspected cases will be thoroughly investigated. After review of the video, speaking with management of the humane society and interviewing the individual in the video no charges will be filed at this time. The Union Springs Police Department will review any additional information that is provided in the future, and remind citizens to report animal cruelty to the Bullock County Humane Society or the Union Springs Police Department. Report to Union Springs Police Department, Investigations Division, (334)-738-3131. " *If you are going to call PLEASE be respectful!*.

It's important to realize just because the police are not pursuing charges doesn't mean we are done saving Hope's life. Although there will be no justice in the eye of the law we are still here to pick up the pieces and continue Hope's recovery.

Update 1-3-17 : Friends, I have a message from Hope's nonprofit. Please read, "I have a sad update. It was a valiant effort our vets put in trying to save Hope's leg, but that battle was lost today. On her check up today, the X-rays showed that Hope's infection in her bone has deteriorated the bone enough that there is no repair. Her leg will have to be amputated. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she will undergo surgery this week."
