Puppy injured by car, shelter searches for owner

Shelter searches for owner of ‘miracle’ puppy hit by car

A shelter in California is searching for the owner of a puppy who was severely injured after being struck by a vehicle. According to the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, the four-month-old beagle suffered a “severe” break in her leg after being struck by a hit-and-run car accident in South Pasadena.

The shelter recounted what transpired to the pup, which has since been dubbed “Miracle” by PHS staff:

Miracle was hit by a car in the intersection of Fair Oaks and Huntington. After the puppy was struck, she rolled underneath the car and landed on the sidewalk. A Good Samaritan ran to the puppy’s side, while the car drove away. This good-hearted individual rushed the injured dog to the Pasadena Humane Society where our animal control officers were waiting for her arrival after hours.

The injured puppy was diagnosed with a severe fracture in her hind leg, which requires surgery by an orthopedic specialist. Julie Bank, President/CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, stated:

“We are pulling together all our resources to ensure Miracle receives the best care possible and we need your help,” says . “We want to give her the best shot at having as normal a life as possible after such a devastating injury.”

The shelter is hopeful that Miracle’s owner can be found, and that she can be reunited with her family – thus far, nobody has come forward to claim the puppy as their own (Proof of ownership must be provided).

If an owner does not come forward, the puppy will be put up for adoption when she recovers from her injury. Interested parties can email adoptions@pasadenahumane.org and reference animal ID# A410205 for more information.

To help PHS continue to provide lifesaving care for Miracle and more animals like her, please consider making a donation to the Pasadena Humane Society at http://bit.ly/2hdTINg.

If you have any information about this puppy, her owner or the hit and run itself, please call the Pasadena Humane Society at 626.792.7151.
