A dog, apparently beaten and left to die, is currently fighting for her life. On April 2, New York Bully Crew updated Facebook followers about the disturbing situation which left the dog with a grotesquely swollen head, and barely clinging to life:
Rescue doesn’t have time off on Sunday! Caci is on her way
to the emergency hospital for treatment now. She appears to have suffered severe head trauma and we are told that sadly her babies were thrown away in a box!
We were asked by Pit Bulls Rescue Survivors Inc. in PR if we could help with emergency medical treatment and we could not turn our backs on her. She is alone and in pain! Who does this to an animal??!
Caci’s condition did not improve – in fact, the rescue group has pleaded for prayers and positive thoughts for the ailing dog. On April 4, Caci’s most recent condition was released:
There is no evidence of fracture and we are waiting for final cytology results. Caci is experiencing some intestinal discomfort today, whether it’s from the meds or stress we don’t know for sure at this time. Her eyes are still swollen shut although with the meds and care she is receiving she appears to have a little less swelling to her R eye. We are doing everything possible to help her!!
She is receiving pain meds to keep her comfortable, IV antibiotics, we are waiting for further lab tests to come back and she is receiving round the clock care.
Individuals hoping to help donate funds to help with Caci’s care can do so here.
An amazing reunion – dog returns home after four years. Read the story here.
