As we do, as we know our team is behind us, DRSF rallied, and had her assessed to confirm her "doxiness", organized a puller, transporter, quarantine space, vetting, and a foster home for her. As of this evening she is in the care of DRSF and described as "very weak". We still don't know what happened to her, but suspect that she may have been attacked by another dog as she was picked up as a stray in this condition. Will you help us cover her medical bills? She will need specialized vetting foster care, surgery, possibly a night in the ER, surgery, etc, etc....our community has always been there for us and we come to you again, humbly, asking for help, to help Angelia know love, care, comfort, safety, and most important, health.....
