Biscayne Veterinary Center in Miami, FL, is treating a severely starved dog with life-threatening infections.
Named Emily, the 7-year-old female dog was admitted to the Miami Dade Shelter in a near-dead state with extreme starvation and parasitic conditions. The shelter had planned to euthanize her if no rescue stepped up to pull Emily in 24 hours. But the dog showed a last sign of life by wagging its tail, leading the shelter to gather support for treating her.
Emily is now eating and drinking and able to walk a little. She is still under treatment at the Biscayne Veterinary Center, 5841 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, Florida 33137. A donation page has been set up for her treatment and more than $1300 have been collected to date while the total cost of medical care for her is estimated at $2000.
Donations to Emily can be made online at Youcaring.
