I contacted a few friends in rescue, and together with Ben, we wound up taking her to the North Central Animal Shelter. My little dog Goat went through North Central as well, and like her, was chipped but his owners wouldn't come for him. Anyway...
She is chipped, and her owners have been contacted. They have not come for her. Her left front leg was either broken, and never fixed, or she's suffered a nerve injury. She is not in visible pain, so the shelter believes this is an old injury. All the same, that leg will likely have to be amputated. She is not being seen by many visitors to the shelter as she's in the medical treatment area. The likelihood of a random person coming in and even visiting that area, let alone adopting a dog with a clearly mangled leg is I'm guessing--not great.
I intended to adopt her myself, until I found out that I can't have more than two dogs in my unit, which devastated me. I had already named named her Trio. Alas, I have not found a rescue with an available foster. In reaching out to people I know, it was suggested that I raise money to pay for her medical expenses. That way, I can contact even more rescues and let them know that we have the money for her amputation and/or continuing care.
So that's what I'm doing guys. I'm trying to raise money to get this super sweet girl the care, and then ultimately the home that she deserves. She certainly didn't deserve to be abandoned in a pile of dirt in Hollywood in triple digit temperatures.
If you can help me help Trio, I would appreciate it. In the event that someone miraculously comes in to adopt her, I will refund your money. If for some reason I can't find a rescue for her, I will refund your money. If I raise more than I need, I'll refund your money, or donate it to the rescue who takes her. But the logical thing to do is to see how much I can raise for her, and then maybe a rescue, which is already strapped for cash, will be more inclined to take her.
She's sweet, and she's beautiful, and she just got completely hosed. I visit her as often as possible which is several times a week.
If you can help Trio, her and I would both be enormously grateful.
