Nothing ever prepares us when confronted with this sight and sadly it’s becoming more common.
This innocent victim of pure neglect was rescued from a busy road. Hundreds of people have seen her but only a few have offered her help. They are not ‘rescuers’. They are just people that saw her, stopped, knew they had to do something, saved her and has changed the future for this baby in an act of kindness. Something every human is capable of.
This is what community care is about and the ultimate goal at Mission Paws’ible – to support and empower others to rescue and adopt because TOGETHER we can save them all.
Stella has been at the clinic for a few days. She was initially petrified of humans but now she has softened and enjoying the attention.
But, just when we thought she was on the road to recovery, it has been discovered that she has a hard rock lodged in her colon. Remnants of the only food she could find and now it is firmly lodged inside her. The only option is surgery which is high risk, but a risk we are willing to take.
The Xray revealed
– Foreign body on colon
– Mega colon
– Left femur fracture
The risks are:
– her anaemia
– her unbalanced electrolytes
– her low albumin
Stella will undergo the surgery this week at Sunset Vet Bali . She requires further tests plus a blood transfusion due to her low albumin (the healing power of the body) and anaemia. The total cost is approximately AU$1500 if it all goes to plan. We have made a buffer of $500 because she will need further surgery on her leg much later on.
We know this is a lot of money for one dog, but we also believe Stella deserves the best and why should we let her down now? She has shown us her will to live. She eats well and is now allowing herself to be loved. She is worth it!
With your help we will change her life forever
