Imagine the fear of being hit by a car, then turned into a shelter, in pain and afraid.
Imagine the fear of being hit by a car, then turned into a shelter, in pain and afraid. Hannah, a 7-month-old puppy, was surrendered to the Paterson shelter unable to walk on her hind leg and with no pain medication or vet care. Despite having so many special needs medical cases, RBARI heard about Hannah and we knew we had to help.
Hannah is just a puppy and has been through so much already. She is unable to walk, yet remains super sweet. Hannah is understandably scared; she cried the whole way to the vet hospital. It was the type of cry that shatters your heart as you race to the hospital just wanting to give her relief from the fear and pain. Hannah is amazingly gentle, despite the pain, and she allows handling and snuggles into your arms as you carry her.
Hannah needs extensive orthopedic surgery immediately. She is resting at Oradell Animal Hospital on pain medication. Hannah’s femur is broken so badly that it needs a metal plate. She has a second break on her hip, also requiring a plate. Her pelvis is fractured as well.
Despite her pain, Hannah kisses everyone and yearns for comforting arms to nestle into. She cannot walk, but her tail never stops wagging. Please donate and spread the word to help Hannah walk again!
