For May, Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be fundraising for Save the Pets AZ.
It was a cold and rainy morning on the south side of Tucson, when a young lady saw a brown lump lying along the road. As she drew closer, she saw it was a brown dog. Unable to stand, the dog was dragging himself into some bushes along the road. The lady was one of our foster parents. She pulled over and called for help.
The pup had been attacked by something – probably coyotes – and was terribly torn up. And in addition to his extensive injuries, the dog was wet and very cold. The man who went to help didn’t know if they would make it to the vet in time. But he drove fast. And the stray dog was still alive when they arrived.
The vet’s analysis was not encouraging. The dog had extreme lacerations to both front legs, a huge opening across his neck, and his ear was almost torn off. It was close. Touch and go. The stray became “Trey” and people all over Tucson were pulling for his recovery.
But the ear was getting worse and would have to be cut back and soon. So, Trey was once again packed up, but this time it was for the trip to a specialist – he needed ear surgery.
The surgery was a wonderful success and Trey slowly recovered from his wounds in the home of his loving foster mom. And to complete the happy ending, the foster mom decided to keep Trey as a member of her family. In Rescue, that’s called a “Foster-Failure” and it is the happiest outcome of all.
So many people stepped up to help Trey, but how was Save the Pets AZ able to reach out? How could Save the Pets AZ pay for the vet care, medications, and surgery with a specialist? It was made possible with donations from the kind people of Pima County. Trey says, “Thank you.” Please donate to help the next pup in need.
