In rural North Carolina, a young pit bull mix was found on Tuesday by Animal Control protecting her five young puppies. The brown and white mother dog suffered serious injuries including one of her ears completely ripped off, the other ear partially ripped away, deep gashes and bites on her neck and body, and a deep bite wound over her eye.
The animal shelter's rule precludes any individuals from adopting any dogs remotely related to the pit bull breed. In addition, the mother was filthy, had overgrown nails and was too weak to fight for her babies much longer.
A heartbreaking situation indeed, but the moment the earnest plea went out to Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs, is the moment this dog's fate changed forever.
Now named Jade, she and her five puppies were immediately transferred out of the animal shelter to a veterinarian where they are now being treated. The organization posted the following on Wednesday needing a friendly offer of help:
"We are seeking a local NC foster, near Wilson, or a NYC area foster and will try to get them flown up via Pilots n Paws. If you can help, please email email@example.com ASAP...If you'd like to help out with the vet care, please go to www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/donate."
