Second chance for scared Layla: Rescued After Months on the Streets

Spread the love

Layla had been roaming the streets of Houston as a stray for a very long time. People tried to capture her to help, but she was terrified of humans. After months of scavenging on the streets and from the looks of her, barely surviving, she was spotted with a foreign object stuck around her head.

Initially, it was thought to have been the base of a traffic cone, but as rescuers inched forward, the object had been identified as a piece of fiberglass that had become embedded into her neck. Because of the impending infection looming around her neck, time was of the essence.

Layla was safely tranquilized by animal control officers from BARC. A local animal rescue organization, ThisIsHouston stepped in to help Layla and receive the medical attention she desperately needed. The fiberglass had been embedded into her neck and surgery was required to remove it and repair the damage.

The director of one of our local shelters, BARC, caught wind of her needing help and animal control offers went out to capture her the next day. Because she was so scared, they needed to tranquilize her to capture her. Many kudos to those officers for working so hard to secure this girl so she could get the care she needs.
