Leia arrived at a rural Texas shelter on Friday afternoon. She was covered in blood and still in shock. No one is exactly sure what happened to her to have caused such serious injuries, but more than likely she had been struck by a vehicle.
“She lies lifeless on the examining table unable to move… We are sure her legs are broken in multiple places as she cannot walk,” Rescue Dogs Rock NYC posted on their social media page.
Rescuing Leia will be the non profit rescue organization’s tenth emergency rescue case this week.
“She was an end of the day euthanasia request, as the shelter cannot give Leia the medical care she needs.”
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC never want to have to refuse to help a dog in serious condition, since there are so many rescues who simply cannot afford to accept cases which ultimately can wind up costing thousands of dollars.
Leia is scheduled to be transferred to an emergency veterinary hospital. Follow her plight here.
