Pippa was drug behind a car and suffered without help for weeks!
Friends I know this is difficult to see and read but this innocent victim needs your help. Pippa has suffered greatly at the hands of humans. And to think she is only 1 year old. Pippa is in very critical condition. We have created these animal saving shirts to help us raise the funds needed to save this baby.
Here is what we know. Pippa was drug behind a car. Pippa has multiple wounds to the chest, her underbelly and her front left leg is de-gloved. Sadly most of the foot is gone along with the back left leg being mangle. On top of everything else this baby was starved very badly at only 25 pounds. She is so severely emaciated that she has a body scale 1 out of 9 (the lowest possible before death).
Our partners at The Arrow Fund rushed her to their Emergency Vet Hospital. Pippa was in so much pain when she arrived . What a relief it must have been to have pain medications after suffering for so long! She required a blood transfusion immediately on intake. Doctors said Pippa's front leg will need to be amputated when she is stable. There is nothing they can do to save the leg. Pippa is Heartworm Positive. This is very sad. She also has a slight heart murmur so an echo cardiogram was done. No damage to the heart was found but it is not functioning as it should due to severe dehydration and being emaciated.
Rebecca writes, “The advanced medical care our animals require is very costly. We have taken on many severe cases and would appreciate your support. Pippa is a very sweet girl and we are so thankful we could say yes to help her.”
The Arrow Fund is a licensed Non Profit Organization and rely solely on donations to continue their life-saving work. They cannot do this without you.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with TAF to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save little Pippa. With your help they can save her from this unthinkable abuse and neglect. Everything from a tee to a bracelet can help this tiny baby heal both mentally and physically.
UPDATE 7-18-17: Pippa is now in her foster home with Debbie and Paul Croak after having her front leg amputated and a toe amputated on her back left leg . All other wounds were closed as well . We were so worried about this girl because of the trauma she experienced. You could tell she was still so petrified. Well we are happy to report we are now getting tail wags ! Debbie and Paul are excellent at showing the unconditional love these innocent and brutally abused animals need . Pippa also tested positive for heart worm, so she has that battle ahead as well .
