Tossed From Overpass/Left For Dead

$20,510 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 503 people in 12 months

Trinity was discovered lying in the road beneath a  roadway overpass in Tennesee by a family returning to Sesser, Illinois.  Vehicles were slowing down to look at her, but no one stopped until they did.  

All four legs appear to be fractured and she is currently being housed in the good samaritans garage as they didn't know what to do with her once they arrived home.  They were told by the local vet it would cost a $600 deposit just to look at her as the photos indicate broken limbs and told to bring her in to put her down.  They couldn't afford the down payment and didn't have the heart to take her life so instead made her as comfortable as they could in their garage.

In a cry for help, the wife reached out to Instagram star Pudge's and asked for his mom's advice.  In turn, we were contacted and asked to help in any way possible.  You don't say no to Pudge and after 5 calls to ER's in S. Illinois and being turned away, she is being transported to our vet Monday morning, May 21st.

Trinity will be stabilized at our vet and then will make a trip to the orthopedic surgeon to determine the prognosis for her legs.  We are keeping a positive outlook that there are no internal injuries.  

The family is guesstimating she is 3 or 4 months old by his body size.  We will have more details to share after our vet completes her physical and x-rays.   We will update as soon as we know more.

Thank you and please keep her in your prayers.  Your donations are greatly appreciated as without your support we could not provide the life saving and changing work we do for the love of a dog.

Trinity is the third medically challenging case we have taken on in the last couple of months.  I truly wish we didn't have to, but as long as man will commit these atrocities on animals, we will be there to fight the good fight and provide the very best to them in our care.

If you would be interested in fostering or fostering to adopt Trinity, please complete an application at  www.k9ei.dog.  She will begin her search once the doctors determine she is out of the woods and ready for a new life.

I hope this update finds everyone in good health and happiness.

Our little rescue with the big heart and tough cases of dogs that would otherwise not get a chance is in need of funding.

We are buried in medical bills. Medical bills and training are the two things are funds go towards. We have no paid volunteers or marketing campaigns. Every donation goes towards the betterment of a homeless dog in dire need of help.

We recently brought in 11 dogs from Chicago Animal Care and Control. 11 dogs who have a second chance at a loving family because they did not die in the shelter.

Two of the 6-month-old pups, Falon & Cyrus had taken ill at the shelter and are now at our vet in medical isolation being treated. This is costly.

We have Mars who was surrendered by his family after giving them 7 years of his life. His body and fur is a nightmare with cuts and loss of fur. His nose is crusted and dried out. He is currently on antibiotics for an upper respiratory infection.

There are Nina, Rey-Rey, and Desi who were living in a Chicago alley. Nina a female Chihuahua, Desi a 20lb version of a Corgi mixed with Jack Russel Terrier who suffered eye damage and Rey Rey who reminds us of a Dashaund mixed with Terrier. His fur is growing in to be a lush, thick reddish color. Their cage cards noted they were testy and difficult to handle. They lived in the shelter, curled up in the back of their cages in fear for a month. We figured how much more testy could they be than the 100lb American Bulldogs that we rescue. All three are regaining their health and blossoming into loving dogs now that they are safe and cared for.

Pacqi is a 6-year-old Chihuahua surrendered to the shelter by his family. He is a mad little man and under the care of his foster Mom is beginning to trust again. Not without haven bit her once at the vet out of fear. We aren't giving up on the old bug as we see the light at the end of the tunnel for him. His person is out there, we just need to find them.

Sweet Teagan is a 7-month-old American Pitbull mix who was surrendered with 2 other larger pit bulls from a family who was breeding the dogs. Teagan had road rash on her hind hip and she has a lump on her shoulder that we will need to have scheduled an appointment with a vet to have it checked out.

Handsome 7-month-old Forest is deaf and his front paws turn outward drastically due to being crammed into a cage too small for him. He spent 2 months at the shelter awaiting help when we were finally able to step up for him. He needs therapy to help strengthen his front limbs. We promised to aid his new family in his care.

Maggie our grand dame at 7 years old needs dental work before she can be adopted.

Allie Mae our 2-year-old hospice Spaniel/Great Pyrenees is entering the last moments of her life as her heart continues to slow. She was born with a Grade 4 heart murmur and all we have been able to do is provide her with check-ups and medication. When her time comes we would love to be able to have her cremated and give her ashes to his hospice family.

Lastly, we have Queen Ziva Grace, an abuse survivor who waited 4 months at the shelter to be rescued. In the last minute effort as kill day approached, we threw a Hail Mary pass and found her a foster home without other pets to save her life. She will need behavior training, an 8 week class for Reactive Dogs that costs $270 at the discounted cost.

Many loving souls counting on us for emotional support, medical care, and behavior assistance.

We are reaching out to Trinity's supporters as a more generous group of donor's has not been found. We are often overshadowed by the large rescues with their marketing staff and grant writers.

We are ever grateful for the care your funds provided for not only Trinity but Kyla too. The two of them are healthy and loving life with their family's. You would never guess they suffered the abuse they did with their mended bodies and playful spirits.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
