On Friday afternoon, just as families made their final preparations to celebrate the holiday weekend, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC received an urgent call from a rural Georgia shelter pleading for help for a three-month-old puppy in critical condition after having been hit by a car and just brought in by Animal Control. According to Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue organization, who often steps forward for the most critical cases of animal abuse and cruelty, the puppy dubbed Christie suffered multiple injuries including cuts, gashes, possible fractures and a deep hole in her side.

Christie was rushed to an emergency veterinarian hospital for life saving care. It was unknown if the ten-pound puppy could even survive the transport or surgery, however the team of surgeons were able to close up the hole in her stomach before the injury became infected. In addition, Christie’s intestines and stomach had been compromised from the impact of the crash.

“Christie also sustained a fractured femur from the hit which can be seen in the x-ray,” stated Jackie on Facebook informing animal advocates the puppy’s condition is still extremely critical and the next 48 hours are likely to reveal if the defenseless little dog, who hasn’t even had a chance to live, will survive this traumatic injury. “The fracture will be surgically repaired at our GA specialty Hospital on Tuesday which will costs well over $3500, and due to the puppy losing a lot of blood and being extremely weak, she had to be transferred to a 24 hour emergency hospital where she will remain indefinitely under 24 hour care,” Jackie continued.

    Thank you Rescue Dog Rocks. I wish I could donate. I am having a hard time getting people to donate on my Go Fund Me to help with the support, rescuing dogs in need. Out of 350 people on my face book I have had only 3 people that donated. Any suggestions from you folks? Thank you.
