PRLog - Nov. 18, 2012 - DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- A tiny 2 month-old Chihuahua was thrown from a moving car Friday. Luckily this discarded puppy had a savior; the driver behind the people who tossed the little dog saw what happened and was able to locate her and pick her up. The stunned and scared puppy was bleeding and needed immediate medical attention. The Good Samaritan took the little girl to the Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control where the Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue was able to quickly sweep-in and bring the puppy to safety on Friday; they haven’t named her but are calling her, “Baby Girl”.
"Baby Girl" before surgery
Baby Girl’s paw required immediate attention; was the most severely affected area of her body. Her paw is de-gloved, bones are broken, ligaments are exposed and it is starting to blacken. Lund Animal Hospital in Boca Raton is donating laser therapy to help save her mutilated paw. Without the treatments, this little girl would have to have her paw amputated. The Lund Animal Hospital is starting the series of the laser treatments Monday, November 19th. We are opening the event to the media to share the story and hopefully raise some funds for “Baby Girl”.
The Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue makes it their goal to save pet lives with the help of volunteers who not only do grant writing, fostering, medical treatments, fundraising, baths and bottle feedings but also open their doors which allows the group to function as one of the largest foster based no-kill rescue groups in Palm Beach County. “Baby Girl” is in the right hands to help heal her.
