Midnight has not had it easy. Found on a cold winter night, her owners were not able to be located, and the Parker family took her in. The children fell in love with her, and she became an irreplaceable part of thier family.
On Saturday, October 12th, the Parkers were away for the weekend, and the person left in charge of Midnight's care found it very odd that she had not returned home. When she returned home on Sunday morning, she was limping. Upon returning, the Parkers immediately took her to the Raynham Animal Hospital. The x-ray's show that her upper front leg bone is shattered from being shot. She still has a metal pellet in her body. The Parkers, especially the children, were shocked and heartbroken that someone would do this to their beloved pet.
They had to transfer her to Westbridge Vetrinary Hospital because she required more care. They will have to do surgery and use pins and a metal plate so she can hopefully walk with that leg again, but we will have to wait and see how much nerve damage she has. Please keep Midnight in your prayers....No one deserves to be treated this way. If anyone has any info please call the Taunton (Massachusetts) Police Department.
Friends of the Parkers have started this page to assist with the estimated $4300 in vetrinary bills, as well as offer a reward for information that leads to an arrest in this case of animal cruelty. Any additional funds will be donated to the SPCA to prevent animal abuse.
