URGENT HELP TONIGHT – DONATIONS NEEDED – PLEASE SHARE
We need to let you know about poor Avabella. It’s a really terrible case. We thought we had seen it all in rescue. However, it pain our hearts to say that this girl's case is so bad that it's left a committee member traumatised and a huge vet bill.
Avabella was dumped at the vet on closing time last night with extensive wounds and what they thought was a fractured femur. We were contacted to help and said yes and made a commitment to this girl. On further examination it was discovered that puppy Avabella had extensive gapping wound on her face, chest, back of the neck and legs that were so pussy and smelly and full of maggots. She was screaming in pain.
I know, I know.. It’s too terrible for words. How could this happen to poor Avabella. Unfortunately it gets worse…
Her four open wounds are severely infected and to be flushed out to get rid of the maggots. You can actually see through the hole into her lungs and chest cavity, and most likely she will have maggots embedded into her lungs. X-rays were ordered and on top of everything else, she has a fractured pelvis on one side and her hip ball is also fractured so her leg will need to be amputated.
The vet estimates that her injuries are TWO weeks old and that she had likely been mauled by another dog. The vet said that she should honestly be dead by now with the amount of infection running through her little body.
As you know our rescue steps in and does the best we possibly can in these situations. It’s why we were put on this planet. It’s what our team of foster carers and volunteers are known for. It’s in our bloody.
The last update is that she is fighting hard to stay alive and still manages to wag her tail despite all of the pain. We must do all we can to help. Avabella is fighting and we are going to fight with her every step of the way.
Avabella means the one who will have a beautiful life or breath of life and we need to get her every fighting chance.
Tonight we need to raise $17,000 for Avabella.
We receive no government funding so are solely in your hands for donations. It’s just how it is.
As you can imagine the bills have added up and quickly. It’s going to be a long road back but we need to make sure we have the sufficient funds to make sure we can support her.
Just $5 from each and every one of you would get us over the line. This is seriously one of the most terrible cases we have come across but if everyone just chips in the cost of a cup of coffee we will get there.
If you could please write DONE when you have donated that would be great.
Avabella is counting on you.
