Just when we think we have seen and heard it all, we come across one more situation that we have never seen before.

On the morning of January 2, just after the New Year, a beautiful little doxie girl was found abandoned in a crate with a moving blanket in a PetSmart in Coral Gables.  She could not stand and could not walk and had visible wounds to her head and other areas.

A quick thinking Vet Tech with good connections knew to call another Vet Tech Friend at Southeast Veterinary Neurology who in turn knew to call us...could we help her?

Phone calls were made, foster space was checked, could we raise the funds for another IVDD surgery??  We had to try...we could not turn our back on her.

Cindy was dispatched to go to the PetSmart and pick up our mystery girl and named her Emmalynn, and to get her to Dr. Wong as quickly as possible.  After X-Rays and a check up, Dr. Wong saw that it was not IVDD that was causing her not to stand, but a fractured pelvis and the wound on her head looked suspiciously like a bb wound.  Since her issue was not neurological but orthopedic, Cindy was back in the car, headed from South Miami up to Ft. Lauderdale to Dr. Moore and Broward Veterinary Specialists.

After another exam by Dr. Moore it was determined that her pelvis is fractured and she is currently in severe pain, and hopefully, that is why she is not standing.  Dr. Moore agreed that the wound looked like it came from a bb gun, although no bb was found in her head.  

Tonight she rests comfortably with the team at Broward Vet Specialists, on pain meds, the wound on her head cleaned, and starting her life over as Emmalynn....Her care to heal her pelvis, clean and sew up her head, and follow up exams will run us approximately $1,500.  We have asked for so much lately, and hope you will agree that after whatever she had been through Emmalynn did not deserve to have more than one person walk away from her in her hour of need.  Will you help us fund her care and help her have the happily ever after she deserves?
