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, dog supplies, and a doggy wheelchair! Anything will help! If you are not able to donate, please share! 

We will donated to Animal Hope and Wellness, and there will also be a donation to Alanna Rizzo's future foundation. 


She is in the hands of the Animal Hope and Wellness nonprofit organization based in Sherman Oaks. You can donate to them directly through VENMO @animalhopeandwellness or through their donation cite at https://www.animalhopeandwellness.org/our-store
Their Instagram page can be located @animalhopeandwellness and @animalhopeinlegislation . 

You can also donate to Alanna Rizzo (Instagram: @alannarizzo) who, with the help of her amazing followers, donated close to $1,700 towards her initial 8 hours VCA hospital visit. She is in the works of launching her own foundation, Guidry's Guardian Foundation, that will help individuals and organizations foster and care for high risk animals. Until then, you can VENMO her at @Alanna-Rizzo 

With your amazing support, we can make a group effort to help animals in need. 
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!

She was enrolled into puppy school last week. We are hoping she can get through all the courses in order for her to become a service dog/animal support dog so she can visit hospitals and schools!
