Graphic Video: Marilyn’s Medical Recovery

NOTE: This page shows Marilyn’s GRAPHIC VIDEO. There is a family-friendly version on our social media.

Marilyn had been through a lot before a Good Samarian brought her into our shelter in mid-July. She had broken her fibula some time ago, and her muscle had wasted away, necrotic with maggots. We immediately set in and provided pain medication, antibiotics, and took x-rays to determine the extent of the damage. Unfortunately for Marilyn, her fractured leg was beyond saving, but thankfully, she can live a full life with an amputation.

Marilyn (named so for her distinctive beauty mark, like Marilyn Monroe) received surgery and a spay, and we kept a close eye on her to ensure she recovered well. We recently removed her staples; she is now available on the adoption floor! No doubt, this sweet girl has a lot of love to give and will bring much joy and happiness to her new forever family.

Your donations provide life-saving care to animals like Marilyn and her friends. Help to save even more animals when you turn your one-time gift into a monthly contribution.
