Teamwork makes the dream work, and when the dream is to save pets lives, community collaboration is key.
The story we are about to share with you is already in motion, but we need YOU- our incredible supporters on our team to save a sweet little dog named Shadow.
On Tuesday, Shadow somehow slipped out the door. When her mom, Maria, realized she began frantically searching the neighborhood for her beloved companion. A group of kids she spoke to reported they had just witnessed a dog being hit by a car.
In that moment, Maria’s heart shattered.
Maricopa County Animal Care & Control field officers responded to the call when Shadow was hit. Their officer arrived to find her small body pinned between the car’s grille and radiator. Extracting her was no easy feat, but once freed they rushed her back to the shelter clinic.
Miraculously, their team realized she had only suffered a broken leg.
She was stabilized with a splint but MCACC knew she would need further care. Maria was contacted and rushed down to the shelter to find her loving lapdog alive. The flood of relief she felt knowing Shadow would survive was overwhelming. Can you imagine?
That’s when The Arizona Pet Project and Two Pups Wellness Fund stepped in to support Maria and Shadow.
Shadow went into surgery yesterday to repair her leg and will soon be reunited with her mom to begin her road to recovery.
With the help of compassionate supporters like you, The Arizona Pet Project will assist with half of Shadow’s veterinary costs and will also provide spay and neuter surgeries for Maria’s other two pets so everyone in the family will be happy, healthy, and home for the holidays.
Together, we support families and save pets.
