This dog was attacked with a shovel by her owner for having diarrhea. This occurred two days ago in Red Rock, Arizona. Police and animal control were called. The owner has surrendered the dog and has been cited for animal cruelty. That court hearing is in November 2017. Dog saw vet on 9/27 and had exam, blood work, nail trim, and fecal test. Sadly, she was still not doing well. She had signs of a UTI, vomiting, and diarrhea. She also has labored breathing.
She was seen 9/27 at Twin Peaks Veterinary in Tucson. Cost there was $426. She was seen 9/28 at Marana Vet Clinic Marana, AZ 520-682-6996. Cost there was $166. So far vet expenses are $592 with more possibly to come (unless we are able to locate free or reduced treatment).
She may also need medical supplies and other needs (bed, food, etc).
She is terrified of men and shakes whenever anyone raises their arms near her. She's a wonderful dog (as you can see from the pictures) that has apparently had a lifetime of abuse, and is finally safe in a loving environment, maybe for the first time in her life.
A witness not only reported this crime, but is fostering this amazing dog and is testifying in court. The witness has done the hardest part for us, but there is still more to do.
I have started this fundraiser for Kiera the dog to help pay for her medical care and other needs, so that the witness (who has already done so much) does not have to incur these costs herself.
All proceeds will go directly to (and only toward) medical expenses and other needs for Kiera the dog, and all receipts will be posted and also available upon request.
Any donation, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated!
