Sophia: Someone threw battery acid on her!
Vet staff have named her Sophia. She was tortured and burned with battery acid. Yes you read that correctly someone threw battery acid on this innocent soul.
She was picked up as a stray (so we will never know who did this to her) in Philadelphia. Sophia was ultimately scheduled for euthanasia because of her condition. J & Co Rescue were able to get a 12 hour extension in order to find a safe place for her to recover. She was rushed to emergency care facility for life saving treatment.
Her entire body is infected, has new abscesses that appear every day; constantly rupturing and refilling with puss and blood. She has gaping holes after the "abscesses" rupture. Sophia is on heavy duty antibiotics to get her skin stable enough for a biopsy. The burns are on the majority of her body.
Despite the pain she is in, Sophia has the sweetest personality, with her tail wagging all the time. She allows everyone to care for her as they need to. Truly amazing...
