Isabella is a special needs newborn found lifeless on a road in Atlanta.
This special needs puppy was found on the side of the road in Atlanta clinging to life. She appears to have some head trauma, and her body tells a very sad story of prolonged abuse and severe neglect. She has urine scalding all over her under belly, and infected pustules. She is extremely emaciated and is in critical condition.
Our partners at Second Chance Rescue stepped in to save this tiny girl’s life. Now we are here to support them in this fight. It is very hard for us to wrap our heads around the abuse that this tiny baby has endured, or to even imagine what or who could have hurt her. She is only about 8 weeks old, and appears to be a small breed, possible French bulldog or mix.
She has been placed on IV fluids, IV antibiotics, heating pads as her body temperature was not even registering when she was first admitted. She is showing signs of mental awareness and is even lifting her head slightly, and responding to stimuli! We were so worried that her head trauma might have caused permanent brain damage, but it seems that she is coming around.
Please join us in the fight to save Isabella. This is an uphill battle but we must give her the chance. We really can use your support as her medical care is going to be expensive as she needs 24/7 monitoring.
UPDATE 8-8-17: We have a positive update to share on baby Isabella! She is doing very well, and seems to have a lot more mental and cognitive awareness. She is responding appropriately to stimuli, and is eating like a champ! She is still not able to walk or stand on her own, but given her emaciated and muscle wasted state, doctors are hopeful she will just need to build up her system over time. There are no broken bones or fractures that appear on her x-rays. The staff at the hospital is so in love with her. She is getting round the clock care, as she had terrible infected pustules on her underbelly from laying in her own urine and feces for an extended period of time. The staff is providing her with multiple physical therapy sessions, to build up her strength, and position her body appropriately for movement. This is by far not an easy road for this little baby puppy, who is lucky to even be alive. She has suffered something so terrible and Inhumane, something that makes every bone in my body cringe. We still desperately need your help!
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue NYC to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give tiny Isavella a second chance. Purchase a shirt today and save this innocent victim! With your help they can give her a new life full of love and pain free!
