Last week, we received an SOS from the MV Shelter about a terrible abuse case. Our vet was able to examine the dog right away and discovered areas on her body that had large, deep wounds where every layer of skin was missing and muscles and tissue were fully exposed. She must have been living like this for a while, since the smell was horrible, like decay. We treated her right away and kept her at the clinic for daily bandage changes and pain and antibiotic medication. She was starving and emaciated … you could see every bone in her body. This poor baby is only 8 months old and it is inconceivable that she has experienced such pain and suffering in her young life.
Today we call her Audrey, named after our dear rescue partner and also meaning nobility and strength. Despite Audrey's horrendous condition, she is as sweet and gentle as can be! She is being showered with love from all of our volunteers and getting the best medical care. With 3 nutritious meals a day, we can already see a huge difference in just one week. Once she is healed, we promise to find her a home where she will be treated with nothing but love.
