Update




I’m feeling desperate lately—there are a lot of dogs in need of help and not much to do. Four of my favorite dogs at the beach were taken by Animal Control there are at least 3 sweet puppies at the beach waiting to be rescued. And more is still going on…

Today I went to the beach as always and I saw this pup at the side of the road. I was going to give her some food but she just stayed there looking at me like she was in shock—well she was, when I picked her up I noticed she had a fractured front leg. I don’t know what to do, I don’t have money to take her to a vet and I don’t even know how to stabilized the leg so the bone won’t come out of the flesh and skin. It seems that she was abandoned there like that by her owners. She’s around 4 months old and small in size and she’s wearing a red collar. If anyone can help, please do. I don’t like to ask but that’s the only thing I can do right now beside feeding her.

See Ginny's blog for more info about the other rescued dogs: Tanya, Miles, Brandon and Frances http://www.manosporpatas.org/blog/2009/04/welcom-to-florida.html

I know how discouraged you must be right now, Sandra. I am dealing with something similiar here - a young pup must get his leg amputated b/c his 'owners' didn't take care of him when he was injured @ a month ago. They left him in a cage outside in all that pain. Not sure where he got hurt, but I can assume it was by them!!!! Keep the faith...maybe some of these 'stars' can donate $$$ to help immediately and continue to do so in the long run????? You are all they have.....

Thanks. We're trying to get some help for her. The fracture seem to be recent, and she still looked shocked when I found her. But shocked and all she is sweet.
