When a photo of the tiny face of Fiona had been posted on Saving Carson Shelter Dogs’ Facebook page, animal advocates just wanted to hug her, wrap her in their arms and assure her that everything was going to be fine. On March 6, the 14-year-old heartbroken Chihuahua arrived at the Carson Animal Care Center as a stray. A volunteer wrote:
“This sweet angel needs help now. She has some heart failure possibility and having some trouble breathing; she is being treated by the Vet. She needs a foster and rescue now to save her life.”
On Wednesday evening Fiona was rescued by Leave No Paws Behind. Although she was able to relax and sleep soundly all night, Thursday morning’s veterinary examination at the Pet Doctors of Sherman Oaks revealed serious health problems:
“All results are in and we now have a new updated estimate! Fiona REALLY NEEDS YOUR HELP as she remains in ICU! Radiologist reports show heart disease and severe Pneumonia. Now she also came in loaded with ticks and we can only deduce that this poor little girl was tossed outside and left to die. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP US CONTINUE TO HELP HER ONE DAY AT A TIME! We have received a new estimate for everything moving forward totaling $1,451.71 and we still need $1,206.00 to help her! No amount is too small and all amounts are tax deductible,” the group posted on their Facebook page.
