EMERGENCY : LILLY NEEDS OUR HELP – DUMPED WITH FIVE FRACTURES AFTER HER FAVORITE HUMAN HIT HER
Lilly, a stray dog with intensely confused eyes, is only eight months old but the world has already shown her more physical and emotional pain than it should have.
The life of a stray dog is not an easy one. She tried to get by off of scraps she found on the street, living near a residential complex in a recently “gentrified” neigbhorhood. Lilly was miserably caught between the modern , rich skyscrapers, and growing garbage heaps.
She was an outcast , no one really wanted her in the street. Although , not everyone was trying to kick her away: there was a nice lady who would sometimes give her food and pet her. Lily missed her as she missed a home and a family… Two things she never really had.
Over time, Lilly started recognizing her red car, and running after it. The lady would stop, get out and pet her; sometimes she got faster and drove away…. Until three days ago.
Three days ago , Lilly saw the red car drive out of the complex. She ran towards the car, but this time she didn’t run after it but WITH it. Trying to get the attention of her favorite person, she stayed near the front wheel. SUDDENLY, she felt the weight of the tyres on her little legs..and then on her body. Her tiny body was hit by the red car; she screamed and the car stopped.
Lilly was brought to the shelter by the same person, who asked “not to bring her back” to her street.
There was nothing much the shelter could do. We HAD TO pull her so she could have the complicated medical treatment she needed.The x-rays have revealed that all her fractures warrant a surgical operation. She has FOUR fractures in her legs. Her pain is excruciatingly high even when being managed.
The x-rays show us about her physical state, but it is not hard to IMAGINE her emotional turmoil. She ended up being hit by her possible parent , the person she wanted to be with the most in the world.
As we speak , our doctors are planning Lilly’s operation. IT will be a lengthy and difficult one given the nature and the number of her fractures. But we won’t back ; we will do whatever necessary to put back Lilly on her feet.
