An 11-week-old puppy, with two broken legs, was abandoned in the foyer of the North Shore shelter of the Animal Rescue League/Western Pennsylvania Humane Shelter on Tuesday morning, reported the organization on their Facebook page. The puppy was discovered by a clinic client and immediately taken to the ARL/WPHS clinic to be assessed by a veterinarian.
The Yorksire terrier puppy, dubbed Laney, has been transferred to Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center (PVSEC). It is suspected the puppy has two broken legs and a slow heart rate attributed to having been sedated before being abandoned at ARL/WPHS. Laney is scheduled for surgery Wednesday on both of her legs.
“This puppy’s health and safety is our top concern now that she is in our care. We ask the community for their support and to have Laney in their thoughts as she goes through a tough next few of days,” said Dan Rossi, Chief Executive Officer of the ARL/WPHS.
Pittsburgh Police are investigating the incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact the shelter at 412.321.4625. Donations to help Laney and animals cared for by ARL/WPHS can be made by clicking here.
