Shirley's owners were giving her away from free on Craigslist with a HUGE tumor!

 

I can't believe this. Meet Shirley. Her owners were giving her away for FREE on a local swap and shop page aka Craigslist! We all know what happens to pets that are given away for free on Craigslist. Predators and abusers prowl pages like them looking for free dogs they can torture, abuse, or use as bait in dog fighting. The strange thing about Shirley is she has already seen the worst of humanity. Who could post their dog for free knowing she couldn't even walk. She had no chance.

A local animal advocate saw the photo and contacted their group. We received a plea from Midwest Animal ResQ and took one look and knew she needed our help! What we didn't know is just how destroyed this poor girl was. She had a HUGE 3 pound tumor dragging below her body.

Shirley was transported to their rescue the day before thanksgiving. The poor thing could hardly walk because of the enormous mass attached to her side. She was rushed to the Emergency Vet, they quickly assessed her and decided to stay late and perform emergency surgery. Shirley received life saving surgery early Thanksgiving morning. Without it she would have died.

The mass had massive blood supply, and the surgery was complex and took hours. She is in critical condition because of the blood loss. She required multiple blood transfusions to save her life. Emergency staff removed a mass over 3 pounds from a dog that weighs only 7 pounds. You can see in the photos this poor girl is covered in stitches. She still needs your help! 

We created this campaign page with Midwest Animal ResQ to help raise donations for Shirley's recovery. The animal-saving products you see here all help us give this girl the care she needs and pay for the surgery she has endured . Please, if you can, purchase an item, share with your friends and help us make the holidays about saving Shirley! Give a gift and save a life! With your help we can give her a second chance.
