Laney was an owner surrender and she cannot see.
PLEASE HELP SAVE ME.
I was dumped like this by owner at a rural shelter. I am only weeks old but I cannot see and my body is covered in infection. Keep reading to find more about my story ... http://dogco.org/save-laney-rdrPosted by Hendrick & Co. on Saturday, December 10, 2016
We received a plea to help a tiny puppy suffering with the body of a neglected senior. We immediately said we would help her! We are not sure what happened, but she is one VERY sick puppy. She could have ingested some type of poison or it could be neglect. As you can see, she's covered in infected bleeding sores. On top of that her eyes are crusted shut. She cannot not see from the infection and swelling in her eyes.
“The emergencies just keep coming. Trust us when we say we take as many as we can. It's completely overwhelming.” wrote RDR. “Today we are raising funds for a tiny 3 pound puppy who is fighting for her life.”
Rescuers have named this baby Laney. She is a very sick 3 pound puppy who was an owner surrender yesterday at a Georgia high-kill shelter. Because the owner "surrendered" her to the shelter it is up to them whether they will pursue abuse charges. Our job is to pick up the pieces and try to save this girls life. The good news is despite being covered in sores and despite being blind she is a typical puppy who wants love and to be snuggled. We will post an update when we get one, but right now we need everyone to come together for this tiny innocent baby! This will take a village to save her life.
UPDATE 12-11-16 : RDR writes, “She is still fighting for her life at our GA vet partner. Her kidney values are off & her sodium level is too high. No one can be 100% sure what happened to her before she ended up as a surrender at the shelter, but it is possible she's been poisoned by meth or some other drug. She's on an IV & heat & being watched very carefully.”
I know this update is heartbreaking but Laney needs your help today! She’s definitely a little fighter, all 3 pounds of her. Today, she's lethargic again and her medical team is working around the clock to save her. Laney is being carefully watched & we will post another update once we have one.For now, please keep this tiny angel in your thoughts and prayers and let's hope she gets a holiday miracle.
SAD UPDATE 12-11-16 : Laney just died. I am so sorry friends. Here is a message from her rescuers, “ We have just received the heartbreaking news that our tiniest angel, Laney, also got her wings tonight. She'd fought hard over these past days with ups & downs, but at the end of the day, her fragile 3 pound body could night fight off all the sickness. She was likely poisoned & vet said could have been meth or crack cocaine, we'll never know & doesn't matter now because whatever it was cost a precious puppy her life & that breaks our hearts & sickens us. Where was Laney's holiday miracle?
With tears flowing, we thank all who supported her save & brave fight to overcome the odds. We are sorry she was failed. We are sorry we got her too late. Laney, we will NEVER forget you & continue to fight on in your honor, just like Caleb, Beatrice, Guinness, Liam & all the others we got too broken & too late!
