A Minnesota-based rescue agency is continuing its fight to save an emaciated dog who had been locked in a shed in Texas. The Northern Lakes Rescue agency took the skeletal dog, dubbed Trinity, under its wing in late May. In a Facebook post, the agency described what happened:
Last night we were made aware of a dog severely emaciated and in dire need of help in the Rio Grande. She was put in a shed for the last few days with a little food and they felt she was cured. 😡
Since Trinity’s arrival, there have been a series of ups and downs to save her life. The agency recounted the laundry list of maladies Trinity faces, writing:
Trinity has a body score under 1, very anemic and has no weight baring on her back right leg, plus she has an old break on her front leg that was not healed right. The vet said she has gone a long time without food. She of course is very dehydrated and with the anemia from the bad infestion of fleas, they recommended a blood transfusion.
Trinity has had blood transfusions and round-the-clock care. On June 6, the rescue group wrote:
Trinity has been rushed to Blue Pearl 24 hour care this morning, her blood sugar was very low. Trinity is still showing us she has a will to fight for her life and we will continue to fight for her. We need your help! This ER Visit we had to pay a deposit of $4,000. Please help us help Trinity.
