A severely injured puppy, possibly wounded after being struck by a vehicle, was found in a donation bin outside of the Animal Welfare League in Chicago, Illinois. On Tuesday, the shelter alerted its Facebook followers about the concerning situation:
Early this morning a puppy was found in Animal Welfare League’s donation bin which is located right out front of Animal Welfare League by the main doors. Though we are very thankful that someone brought this puppy to the right place, we have no idea when this puppy was left in the bin.
Our bin gets donations all the time and luckily this puppy who was already in critical condition was not buried under a pile of donations.
According to the shelter, the injured puppy is a three-month-old Cairn terrier – her body showed scrapes and bruises and x-ray evidence shows that she was likely hit and dragged by a car.
The puppy, dubbed “Sunshine,” remains in critical condition – she is suffering from likely head trauma and neurological issues. Anyone hoping to donate towards her care can do so at this link.
