Juno: Newborn puppy had leg amputated from abuse!
**** UPDATE ****
Remember baby Juno? This tiny baby was rushed from the Brooklyn shelter to RDR's emergency vet clinic with a severed leg. Well we have great news. He is healing well and has fully recovered from his amputation! He is growing and gaining weight like a champ thanks to his medical foster mommy! He is a shining example of why we do what we do! Thank you to everyone who purchases our animal saving products to help save this baby! We are eternally grateful!
**** UPDATE ****
Please keep baby Juno in your thoughts and prayers! He is a new rescue from the NYC ACC where he was surrendered as a 3 day old puppy with his paw dangling, hanging by a thread. We are so happy he is in the incredible hands at Rescue Dogs Rock.Juno's wound from his hacked off leg is infected and his eating is erratic.
Rescuers and Vet staff do not know if he will survive. They are doing everything possible to save this sweet baby. He's being syringe fed every hour or so and receiving around the clock care. We hope and pray this 1 week old baby can pull thru! We LOVE you Juno! Keep fighting!
**** END UPDATE ****
Imagine rescuer's horror when they got an urgent plea midday from the NYC Animal Control Center begging for help with an urgent newborn puppy who's foot was literally dangling!
Now named Juno, this tiny baby was rushed from the Brooklyn shelter to RDR's emergency vet clinic. You can see his umbilical cord still attached. This poor tiny baby just breaks our hearts! We are as frustrated about this as you guys are.
The dangling foot was beyond repair so it was unfortunately amputated. Juno weighs about 1/2 a pound. This is a bottle fed newborn baby so he has gone home with an amazing Medical Foster for around the clock care and feedings.
Because of this horrific injury & him being a newborn, his chances of survival are 50/50 or less. But we refuse to give up on him! I hope you will join our fight in saving his life!
We have no idea where he came from or what happened to him, sadly. We will never know who did this to him but we do know we will stop at nothing to see him survive a live a long happy life fill of love! Let's join together and fight for this tiny angel!
We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to help raise the funds needed for Juno's recovery. Help us save another innocent victim. Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save this babies' life.
