In Alpharetta, Georgia, Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, volunteers teared up as they described the heartbreaking situation of a young mother dog surrendered to Animal Control on Thursday afternoon.
Cicely Tyson is only one-year-old and had just delivered a litter of puppies. Although she is caring for her puppies at the shelter, one look at Cicely shows her swollen eyes – the pinkish-red membranes in the corner of her eyes are painful. The condition is called “cherry eye,” and if the dog scratches or paws at her eyes, it can lead to corneal abrasions and infections.
“Have you ever cried so hard you think you can’t cry anymore?,” the organization posted on their Facebook page raising funds to care for the mother and her litter. “Let’s take a look at Cicely here. She just had her puppies. She is a year old.
And the cherry eyes?! I can’t with this one. How on earth does one being suffer so much in one year of life?
But lean in, won’t you? Look at her cleaning her babies. Caring for them through her pain…”
And at Animal Control, Cicely’s former owner didn’t care enough to help, however Angels Among Us Pet Rescue has reached out to save the family.
