Gunshot Great Pyr "Sister" needs Vet expenses paid

On December 2nd, GPRM was contacted by a fellow rescuer out of Lewistown, MT.   A few kind souls had rescued brother and sister Great Pyrenees/Spanish Mastiff mixes and saved them from being shot by their owner. The rest of their 9 siblings were already assumed dead from gunshot wounds. These two were the ‘lucky ones’ - even though the owner had taken a shot at the female, it seemed that she was truly lucky and was taken to safety and loved on by these kind volunteers.   It unfortunately became obvious a few days later that the female, now named “Sister,” was becoming weak and was generally not well; upon further inspection, the group realized that she had been shot, too! 

 A veterinarian determined that Sister had a bullet lodged in her lung, causing it to deflate and infect all of the tissue around both lungs. Her chances were grim and there was very little hope that she would live. That said, after over a week of medications, constant care from the veterinary staff, and drains to clear the infection, this beautiful girl is on her way to a new life and a new start!   At this point we find ourselves with a healthy girl on the road to recovery, and a sizable vet bill for close to $4500.

 Meanwhile, her brother Cyrus has made his way to us and is getting some basic training in preparation to moving on to a Pyrmanent home.  The picture we posted shows Cyrus watching over Sister before it was discovered that she had been shot

 We humbly ask for your support in helping us cover Sister’s vet bill and sending her on her way to a new loving home!
