TEENS FIND SEVERELY ABUSED DOG AND RUSH HER TO SAFETY - “She was in shock and curled up in a ball on the trail and they knew they had to bring her in for help. All of the teens have animals and felt her pain.”
Five teenagers happened upon a dog, now named Lily, while four-wheeling on the La Tierra trails in New Mexico. Lily’s paw was almost severed and there were four bullet wounds on her body. The teens rushed her to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society where she was treated by an emergency vet. She will have surgery to amputate a leg, and based on her injuries, it is believed she may have been suffering for over a week. Read more from the Santa Fe Animal Shelter Facebook page:
She’ll have surgery tomorrow on her front paw, which was nearly sliced off. I spoke with the teens who saved her, and they will be visiting her tomorrow afternoon. The teens - Ryan, Cole and Tristan and two others - said they felt fortunate to find her while they were out four-wheeling; the first time they had been out in that area. She was in shock and curled up in a ball on the trail and they knew they had to bring her in for help. All of the teens have animals and felt her pain. ‘I don’t know how someone could do that to a dog,’ Cole said. ‘We wanted to save her; we knew she was going to die if we didn’t.’
Who would do this to a dog? One of Lily’s rescuers, named Cole, has expressed an interest in adopting Lily if no one claims her. Thanks to her kind rescuers, Lily has a chance at a finding a home where she can be safe at last. Click here for more information.

Love. Thank you, Ryan, Cole, Tristan, and friends.

I’m home sick today and working as much as I can so I’m not overwhelmed tomorrow. I stepped away to get a drink and found my assistant stepping in on my behalf. She’s a good helper! ❤️ (at House of Pibble, Weehawken)
This is Max. He was adopted from @libertyhumanesociety about 1.5 years ago. Big, lovable #meathead. #unioncity #nj #apbt #pitbulls #pitstagram #pitbullsofig #pitbullsarefamily #rescuedogsrock #adoptdontshop #shelterpetsrock #dogs #dogsofig #dogstagram #dogsarefamily (at 19th Street Union City)
