Animal Network Las Vegas was notified of a border collie in distress a few days after it was dumped by it's owner at a Nevada Power substation. This poor girl was left at a power plant for five days where she severly detoriated in that short amount of time due to extreme heat, summer storms, no shelter, and lack of food and water. Kind workers managed to corner her in a building and rescue was called, fearing she wouldn't make it through the night.
When I rescued her, you could see that her coat was extremely matted, she didn't want to stand or walk, and she was very very scared. We took her straight to the vet because she was in such bad shape. She had to be medically shaved and then assessed. There was a large wound on her side that wasn't healing correctly and a drain had to be placed in it. Her paws were torn and blistered due to hot sand and asphalt, they had to be bandaged. Both ears have infections in them. We recently had to go back to the vet to have two more old wounds flushed out since they have started to abcess and she has to stand in solution twice a day to help with her paws because they are still in bad shape. Besides her physical pain, she is trying to overcome the mental obstacles that have come up through this abuse and abandonment, I am working hard to restore her faith in humans and to rebuild her confidence.
We named her Nymeria, she's beautiful and calm with the heart and courage of a direwolf.
If you could help out with Nymeria's medical expenses, we would be very grateful. Once we can get her physically healed, we can work on getting her mentally ready for adoption with a forever family.
Nymeria is being rescued and rehabiliated by Animal Network, a non-profit rescue group in Las Vegas.
Thank you for reading and sharing Nymeria's story.
