Ophelia: He shot me in the face...
He shot her in the face. Just when you think you have seen it all. There is so much evil in this world. Today is like every other day in rescue where you try and get through one obstacle at a time and then at one point you are stopped dead in your tracks.
We just received an urgent plea from Second Chance Rescue NYC to help this innocent baby who was shot in the face! Yes shot in the face! Of course we said yes! Will you join us?
Rescuers at Second Chance write "We try so hard to be responsible and not take on more than we can chew but we can't turn a blind eye to something so horrific! It is unknown at this time who shot Ophelia or why someone would want to kill her. Local authorities are investigating, but so far no leads in the case."
Here is what we do know. Ophelia had collapsed in a junkyard when bystanders realized she was bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound to her face. Animal control was alerted and got her to a vet where life saving surgery was performed immediately.
Saving Ophelia is as simple as wearing a tee! We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue NYC in creating this week's animal-saving shirt, long sleeve and hoodie design to help us raise funds needed for Ophelia's recovery. Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save this baby's life! We can't do this without you!
