Hi, my name is Canela. I’m one year old, still a puppy. I was hit, dragged by a car and left for dead on the side of the road. Some people from Miami Dade Animal Services picked me up and brought me to the shelter. I thought I was safe….but I wasn’t.
For weeks I laid in a cage whimpering in pain just wondering why no one was coming to get me. Finally the day came and they said my injuries were more than they could fix so they scheduled me to be killed. They sent out a plea to this thing called “Rescues” but none of them came for me. Luckily for me the shelter let me stay alive for one more night.
They said if no one came for me I would be killed at 11:00 am. Thankfully, a great group of ladies came to my rescue and adopted me. I was wheeled out on a cart and put into a car. I was taken to the vet where they said the shelter did not do a very good job of taking care of my wounds.
I have broken legs, fractures and road rash. I need surgery to repair my legs, my wounds will have to be debrided and re-bandaged many times. I am begging all of you out there that love dogs to please donate to my fundraiser.
The estimate is over $2600.00. These wonderful ladies need help to pay the vet to take care of my injuries. I want to be able to run and play again, I want to be able to find a forever home and family, I just want to be a dog.
