Starfish sat at the shetler paralyzed and covered in urine and feces.

 

Starfish was sitting in a rural shelter paralyzed, soaked in urine, feces and mud. Something happened to her over 2 weeks ago and her owners decided to dump her at the shelter now. She is in utter despair, dirty and her world has just crumbled. A shelter volunteer pleaded with over one dozen rescues to help her and none of them responded to the plea.

Days went by and Starfish was still at the shelter. Cases like hers are usually euthanized at the shelter and the only thing keeping Starfish alive is the volunteer who was pleading for her life. Second Chance Rescue saw what Starfish had been through and knew they needed to help.

Starfish is now under the care of Second Chance Rescue who had her transferred to their emergency vet treat in GA. Upon arrival she was given an intense scrub and bathing to remove the urine, feces and mud. She was placed on pain medication and had all her tests ran. Bloodwork, fecal, X-ray MRI and they are awaiting radiology for consult. Doctors do know Starfish has a vertebral body fracture at T-12. She will need to be fitted for a wheelchair while doctors wait for treatment plans.

UPDATE 1-10-19: The day rescuer Jennifer pulled Starfish from the shelter she did not think she would ever walk again. Well folks, I think I called everyone and their cousin twice removed today when I found out Starfish's rehab is working and she will walk again. Lake Hartwell Hospital team immediately started rehab with Starfish and the results are in. Josie has been working Starfish on her balancing and walking exercises, they are using the wheelchair less. She is still knuckling and the spinal fracture is healing well. This is not a dog who's body is failing her, this is a dog who is getting closer and closer to living a fuller life.

We have created the animal saving products you see below to help raise the funds needed to cover the costs of Starfish’s care. We ask that you consider purchasing one of these items and help support Second Chance Rescue NYC save her life.
