UPDATE--INJURED PIT BULL

Mona's Mommy here......

I want to thank everybody for the prayers and concern for the injured pit that Sandra found Saturday. I went there this morning and her injuries are far worse than the pictures showed.

Sandra's Vet is closed today because of the extended holiday. I called my Vet and I made an appointment, 4 pm was all he had open. Neither of us gets paid until this Friday but this can't wait so I will pay for her treatment with one of my credit cards.

We both think she was used as bait to train fighting bull dogs, has had pups at some time, appears to have been burned and one eye is sunken in. She is able walk, very gentle and we think she knows finally someone is trying to help her. God only knows all the pain and torture this poor girl has been through.

Sandra has done a marvelous job caring for Shelby. Yes her, name is Shelby.
I asked Sandra, what she wanted to call her, since my doctor needed a name. She didn't have one in mind so I named her Shelby.

I will do a post after we come from then Vet.

Please keep the Power of the Paw going because Shelby will need a miracle.
Go9od Bless............Sarah

Dear Mona
Your Mommy and her friend Sandra are two angels on earth. My eyes leaked right away when I heard that Shelby was used as bait to train fighting bull dogs, oh, I feel sick right now.
Poor poor Shelby, the road to complete recovery and finding a good loving home is a long long road...
I'm sending some green papers to your mommy, not much, to help some with Shelby's medical expenses. The care and corcern from your Mommy and Sandra are priceless, Mona!
Love y'all

I just got a comment from my beloved Pittie Pack. I am going to check your older posts for more info on them. I will be watching for an update about Shelby. Tell Sandra I said HI.

I hope that they will report this to the police. Maybe you all could call the local newspaper or tv stations. They are usually good about reporting animal cruelty like this. Maybe that'll help them catch the sick people that did this to poor Shelby.

Our prayers continue to be with this sweet girl.

You are wonderful to help a doggy like this. We all know you must have had considerable expenses with Mona's situation not long ago, and to extend yourself to a strange dog like this is what angels are all about. Thank you for the update, too. It wasn't easy to read about, but it's what it is. We will continue to keep Shelby in our hearts and look forward to hearing any news - good or bad - that you have.

licks, Lola

You want to know what I think? I think Shelby has already gotten her miracle. Just the love and care she's been getting... she'll want to get better and she WILL. I'm just going to watch the girl thrive and your credit card ... the opposite.
My respects to all the humans involved in Shelby's recovery!!!
Twinkie and family

PS: I was really upset to hear you had such a tough time last night. Linguini empathizes and I wish I was there with you to hold your paw.

Please, make sure to apply for an emergency lifeline grant from United Animal Nations to help with the expenses. They are VERY GOOD with financial assistance. Here is their website http://uan.org/index.cfm?navid=28

In the meantime I will email you to find out where I can send a donation to help!!

Thank you Sarah and Sandra for helping her.
