One-year-old Lady came to us from another shelter. As she was being checked in, the clinic staff could see that she had some swelling near her elbow joint, as well as a foreign body that could be felt.
Further investigation was needed, so Lady was sedated and Dr. Singh performed surgery to explore the area. She discovered a bullet lodged in Lady’s leg!
Lady came through surgery easily, and once she was placed up for adoption, she very quickly found a hope with new dad Gary of Fort Lauderdale. Coincidentally, Gary is also recovering from a leg injury!
Lady is heartworm positive and will be returning to the shelter for treatment once she has fully recovered from her surgery.
Donations from people, like you, help us to help animals like Lady.
