Blackwood, NJ - Paralyzed Chihuahua needs placement - Urgent!
Dear Fellow Rescue Workers -
My name is Heather and I am the Rescue Coordinator for Camden
County Animal Shelter. I am desperately seeking help for a little
girl named Peanut!
Peanut was found by an Animal Control Officer in Camden, back legs
paralyzed, scratching to get into the door of the crack house where she
was living. Animal Control took her to the emergency vet where she has
been ever since. Unfortunately, they have done all they can for Peanut.
Her paralysis is unable to be corrected and she does not have use of her
bowels - She must be expelled, like a puppy.
They are guessing Peanut is about five years old, but she could be
younger and have had such a bad diet that her teeth make her appear
five. She is a very happy little girl and the wonderful folks at the
hospital made her a cart and she gets around great! She is very much
full of life!
We are unable to take Peanut to our Shelter. We simply don't have the
resources to give her the care and attention that she needs. The
hospital can no longer keep her and we have until Labor Day to find a
place for her. They won't be able to give us an extension on that
We don't have very much time to try and save this girl! When the
hospital contacted me, my heart broke, and I am trying everything
possible to save her from euthanasia. Please, if you cannot help Peanut
yourself, cross-post this story and her pretty pictures! All medical
records will be made available and my contact at the hospital will be
happy to answer any questions. I can be reached at
and I check E-mail extremely frequently.
Thank you for caring about Peanut and all you do for the dogs!
