On Thursday night, a pit bull named "Blondie," chewed off her tail.
The horrible damage took place while Blondie's foster family slept. When they woke up, they witnessed Blondie's painful, disfiguring injury.
Blondie is a rescue dog, fostered through the Far Rockaway Rescue Project, and she is now in urgent need of surgery to have her horribly damaged tail amputated.
Because Blondie is a rescue dog, veterinarian, Dr. Allan Simon of Animal Hospital of the Rockaways, has kindly offered to do the surgery at a discounted rate.
Blondie's foster, Sloane Quealy-Miner, is desperately trying to raise the $400 needed by Monday - the date that Blondie is scheduled for surgery.
Anyone interested in helping can call the veterinary clinic directly at: 718-474-0500. Donors need to mention both Sloane Quealy-Miner and the foster dog, Blondie's, name.
