Help save Georgie!

While feeding cats in West Baltimore on Saturday 11/25, a gentleman approached us and told us about a stray dog living on a deteriorated mattress behind an abandoned house. He said that she about a month prior, she had given birth to 9 puppies but neighborhood children stole them all.

When he took us to where she was staying, it became clear that she was in terrible shape and needed help. She was scared and ran from us but one of the volunteers was able to get her.

Once she was in the car, we rushed her to a vet that was willing to help her. On Sunday, 11/24 Georgie had to have surgery. She had eaten something that was stuck in her stomach and small intestines. There was a linear foreign body made up of wire and plastic pieces attached to plastic grocery bags.The wire had hooked into the wall of her stomach so, although her small intestines were trying to pass the plastic, they couldn't. Luckily, the vet was able to remove the objects. She said she didn't see any perforations which is great news but her big concern was that the entire length of her GI tract was very irritated and almost purple in color.

The update today 11/25 was brief. She is still doing well and is up moving around. She does have severe diarrhea but that is expected. She will need to stay at the vet for another day or two for further observation.

As of yesterday, Georgie's vet bill was estimated at $800 which didn't include two more nights at the vet. After she has gained weight and is feeling better, she will still need her regular shots and of course, she will be spayed. Please donate what you can and spread the word for Georgie!
