We have come to find out there are very few quiet days for animal rescue organizations, and Wednesday was no different for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, a non profit whose goal focuses on the needs of urgent animals and provide them emergency or specialized medical care they need and deserve. A dog with shocking injuries arrived at a partner veterinarian hospital in South Carolina.
What happened to Foxy is heartbreaking; the senior Labrador retriever is currently receiving pain medication and is being prepared for surgery. Her story begins:
“Seeing this made our hearts literally hurt,” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue organization. “Foxy is a sweet 12-year-old Lab mix who was attacked by another dog in South Carolina. She came into our vet, and there were two options – she could have been euthanized or admitted to the hospital for surgery.”
Foxy’s owner brought her to the veterinarian to be euthanized, however the hospital asked the owners to surrender her, and they would reach out to a rescue organization for help. The owners agreed.
“Foxy is being prepped for emergency surgery now because we could not say no! This is not her fault! She is an otherwise sweet, happy family dog!,” Jackie wrote on Facebook. “We understand this is graphic, but we could not let Foxy die because of this. She is an innocent victim who deserves to get help.”
Updates as to the dog’s condition will be provided as soon as possible. To help:
