Maybelle: 15-year-old horse mauled by dog

Maybelle: 15-year-old horse mauled by dog

 

Maybelle, a 15-year-old Tobiano Paint mare, sustained life-threatening injuries after being attacked by a dog.

Owners of Maybelle contacted St. Landry Animal Control in Louisiana on Thursday, January 4th, to report that a pit bull had attacked their horse. Animal control officers were unable to locate the dog in question. Since Maybelle's owners were unable to pay for Maybelle's veterinary care, St. Landry officials took custody of the horse and put her on a 15 day hold. If the owners fail to pay the cost of boarding and medical care, after 15 days, they forfeit ownership.

Parish officials also reached out to the Humane Society of Louisiana to see if they could pay for the emergency medical treatment, which HSL officials immediately agreed to do. Since Thursday night, Maybelle has received 'round the clock care to treat her extensive puncture and lacerations on her muzzle.

Fortunately, over the past two days, her swelling has decreased and x-rays have not revealed any broken bones.  Her prognosis for a full recovery is promising, yet guarded.

The Humane Society intends to help St. Landry Animal Control find Maybelle a great home after they continue to care for her medicial needs and the hold period is lifted.

Hendrick & Co. has created this campaign to help Maybelle and the Humane Society of Louisiana. With your help, we can give Maybelle a new beginning and put this vicious attack behind her. Every purchase today can help save Maybelle. 


Update 1/10/2018

Update from the Humane Society of Louisiana: Maybelle is improving! Less than a week ago, this beautiful 15-year-old Tobiano paint mare was viciously attacked by a dog and left with life-threatening wounds around her snout and muzzle.

Fortunately, St. Landry Animal Control seized Maybelle and immediately transferred her to an equine clinic, where she has been receiving around the clock care! Because of the Humane Society of Louisiana, Maybelle is getting the care she needs and deserves.

If after a 15 day hold period the owners are unable to pay the veterinary bill, which is highly likely, they will forfeit custody. Please notice how well she looks after a few days of proper medical care! Thank you!
