Rai was shot in the neck and thrown into a ditch.
This poor girl was shot in the neck. Rai was found in a ditch in Monroe County, AL. The bullet knocked her out and the shooter then dumped her in the ravine because they thought she was dead. She was not.
Rai has a large bullet wound in her neck and an exit wound right behind her ear. The vet did X-rays and thankfully there is no damage to her bones.
Rescuers have named her Rai. It is Japanese for “trust”. This sweet girl never once offered a growl or bite when we were examining her, x-raying her, or even when we were shaving/cleaning her wounds. She just laid there, completely trusting them.
Rai has a through and through gunshot wound. Entry was her neck and exit was right below her ear. Her Doctor was very surprised that the bullet did not hit anything major. The Doctor said we are lucky she is alive and remains in Urgent Care under 24 hour watch.
This is a huge commitment and financial undertaking. Troy Animal Rescue Project absolutely cannot help Rai without your support. Her care will cost in the thousands and that is just not the type of funds TARP has. This is a life or death situation. She will need surgery and complete rehabilitation.
To help save Rai please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. They make a beautiful gifts and give knowing you helped save this poor baby!
