In a high kill Texas shelter, Yelly arrived in serious condition. She had been struck by a car; the tire and dirt marks on her body indicated she had been dragged for quite a distance.
Tragically, the shelter has no money to treat seriously injured pets – no matter how young, how beautiful or how wonderful their personalities and dispositions may be; the only alternative for the critically injured becomes humane euthanasia. But for Yelly, this would not be her fate. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC began 2019 with a miracle.
“She has open serious wounds which are from road rash from being dragged and hit by a car, and she clearly has a broken leg or shattered pelvis. The black marks all over her body are tire marks and dirt marks from being dragged quite a distance,” explained Tracey Silverstein, co-founder of the organization.
Yelly could barely get comfortable. The following photos and video are graphic and may not be suitable for all viewers:
Yelly has been transferred to an emergency veterinarian hospital. Updates to follow.
