Saving Hope

UPDATED: Initial funds have been donated. I am keeping the GoFundMe active to update you on Hope. To this day she is still having issues due to the injuries she suffered as a puppy. Thank you for the continuous support. .

Hello, 

My name is Alejandra Espinoza Zazueta. Many that know me, know I love animals. Today I ask you to help me save a puppy’s life.

My mom and some caring customers of hers, found this puppy tied inside a plastic Walmart bag that was thrown in a dumpster near her job in Coachella. When arriving, I saw her inside a box laying on the plastic bag she was found in. I noticed she had large abrasions down her back, no movement in her back legs, a deep cut on her head, and her tail was severely cut. 

The people that helped get her out of the dumpster thought she would die within hours. 

We called the police department and animal control. They said they couldn't help if I planned on keeping her. They told me I needed to get her seen at the nearest animal hospital, and that there was nothing they could do. I told them I wanted to report animal abuse since it was clear she had lacerations on her body, and there was no way she could have tied herself in a bag. They told me if I didn't have any physical proof, there is no way they can prove or even make a case.

For those who have pets, you know animal hospitals are extremely expensive. That is why I ask you to please help cover her medical bills, future care, and dog supplies. We would also need to cover her Spay and vaccines! Anything will help! If you are not able to donate, please share!

Although we might not be able to stop animal abuse and animal cruelty overnight, my goal is to start a global discussion about this sensitive topic.

Again, a million times thank you for all the amazing support!
