At 6:00 in the evening on Friday, Shayleen’s life was about to end. She had arrived at a public shelter in the Atlanta area in severe pain from a prolapsed uterus. Most shelters that serve the public have few funds to attend to the veterinary needs of sick and injured pets.
Angels Among Us Pet Rescue had been informed of Shayleen’s condition and had sent out texts, emails and telephone calls asking for a nearby rescue organization to help her.
“We had an hour to spare to decide whether we could take her. If we say no, she dies. If we say yes, she lives. We have no foster. Nobody has said yes yet. We can’t let her die. We’ve sent a million texts, emails, made calls. Cried, begged. Nobody. But we can’t do it. We can’t let her die. So we need help…”Angels Among Us Pet Rescue
And on Friday evening, animal advocates came through and helped with donations and offers to foster Shayleen. Just a few hours later, Shayleen had left the shelter and was on her way to the organization’s partner veterinarian for life-saving treatment.
