What did I do to deserve this? What did I do to deserve the pain that I am in? What did I do to deserve being chained to a bumper while they drove down the road? Did they think it was funny? Did they enjoy hurting me like this? Did they do it on purpose?
I thank God that the chain finally broke free, and a passer by called for help for me. The sheriff's department showed up and quickly drove me to the shelter for help. The staff couldn't believe their eyes, they cried for me. Quickly realizing that they couldn't do anything for me at the shelter, they loaded me up and took me to Greystone Pet Hospital. Once there, two veterinarians, and a team of about five vet techs worked for several hours on me. They gave me pain meds, washed the gravel and debries from my open wounds, wrapped me in bandages, almost my entire body. I cry out in pain, it hurts so bad.
They said I've lost close to fifty percent of the skin on my body, I have bones, and muscle showing all over. They said they don't know yet if I'm going to make it, that they won't know for 2-3 days. I'm on fluids, and pain meds, and if I make it past these next few days, I will have to under go surgery to try to close up some of my wounds, and have drainage tubes put in so that I can start my healing process.
I have a long road of recovery ahead of me. But I have faith, and believe that I wouldn't have survived if it wasn't meant to be. I hope that they catch the terrible person or persons that did this to me, I hope that they are punished for this. Sadly, laws in Ky are minimal, and even if the person is caught, their punishment will hardly fit the crime. I even heard someone say that Kentucky's laws are so bad that it basically welcomes criminals to our state because they can get away with crimes like this.
This is what I know, I was hurt badly, and needed help, and the sheriff's dept, Humane Society, and Greystone Pet Hospital stepped up to help me. Now, they need YOU to step up and help them help me. Please make a contribution to my medical bills by clicking on the "chip in" link above! You have no idea how much I appreciate the amount of kindness, and generosity that has been extended to me.
Please say a prayer for me for a speedy recovery, and eventually a home, a REAL HOME, that will treat me with the respect and kindness I deserve! The shelter will post updates, more photos, and a video of me soon!
