The Story

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!

UPDATE ON KIERA, THE DOG ATTACKED WITH SHOVEL 09/29/17:

Kiera, the dog attacked by her owner with a shovel (for having diarrhea) is safe now. An amazing witness to the incident is fostering Kiera at this time, and has taken her for two veterinary appointments. Fortunately, for Kiera, so far no permanent injuries were found. It was found, however, that Kiera had colitis, the cause of her diarrhea. She will probably require ongoing treatment for that, and because no x-rays have been done yet, x-rays may be needed in the future. Vet bills so far are approximately $600 (see attached), so any contributions towards Kiera's care would be so appreciated. Also, if anyone wants to contribute a bed, toys, treats, food, diapers, and other items, please PM me! Kiera deserves a loving home and a good dog life, and we need your help to make sure that happens. 

Contributions can be made via PayPal to [email protected] or via Caring.com. Donations of dog items can be mailed or sent via Amazon.com to the amazing witness and foster mom of Kiera.

Kiera has blood in her stools and continues to have vomiting and diarrhea as well as labored breathing. It's terribly important that we get enough donations to take her back to the same vet or to another vet for further evaluation and treatment. She could possibly have internal injuries from the assault. :(
