The Story

**We increased the fundraiser to $5000 due to follow up visits to the veterinarian, radiographs, medications, etc.

UPDATE 8/28/17: Millie is doing well in her foster home and continues to recover from surgery. She is one spunky girl who is so brave and continues to amaze us every day! Millie underwent major surgery on 8/25/17 at the University of Minnesota to repair a right femoral fracture (broken leg).  This injury occurred because one of her owners allegedly picked her up and slammed her into the floor 4 times for house soiling.  This incident was witnessed by another person and thankfully the police were notified and Millie was taken to a veterinarian immediately.  Her alleged abuser was arrested and is charged with a crime with a court date set in early September.  Please keep Millie in your thoughts and prayers and share her story! All of us at the shelter are humbled by the people that have generously donated their time and efforts as well as money to helping Millie. Every single penny adds up and we hope that you will keep spreading the word about donating to help with Millie's medical expenses!   


UPDATED:  Millie is on her way to the U of M in the Twin Cities to have surgery on Friday, 8/25/17.  

On 8/24/17 our staff received news that a puppy with a broken leg would be surrendered to the care of the shelter immediately following a veterinary exam to determine the extent of her injuries likely suffered at the hands of her owner.  Her name is Millie and she is 14 weeks old. She needs your help and your donations so that she can hopefully make a full recovery! We are hoping to have her scheduled for the next step in her care either tonight or tomorrow! 

There are still a lot of unknowns and we will do our best to keep everyone up-to-date on the case but here is what we have: 

-Millie is a 14 week old Female mixed puppy (pics coming soon) who has a broken leg that either needs to be fixed or amputated.  

-She was seen on 8/24/17 by a local veterinary clinic in Detroit Lakes and had an exam and X-rays performed as well as pain medication given to help while she awaits her next step in treatment.  

-The local clinic cannot perform the surgery/fix the leg and they are working to refer her to either the University of Minnesota or another comparable facility that can help with her special case. Once this is determined we will update everyone.

-There is a pending investigation and a person has been arrested and is in custody.

Hey everyone!  I'm doing very well in my recovery and in a foster home while I heal.  My case is still under review and not sure yet if there will be a trial or a plea deal or what.  But the most important part is that I am doing wonderfully and loving life and being spoiled every day! Thank you so much for always supporting me and my friends!

Hi guys it's me Millie! I had my staples taken out last Thursday and I was super good for the vet people! I wanted to say hi to everyone there and tried to wiggle my butt! We have set up my follow up radiographs in a couple weeks to see how all my parts are doing. Best part is I shouldn't have to wear a cone anymore!
