When an animal has to fend for herself, everything becomes more challenging, especially staying safe and healthy. Homeless animals contend with hunger, exposure to the elements, disease, and even fights with other strays. One dog was found all on her own lying near the entrance to a 7-11. She found a spot where she felt safe, by the front step, and passed out.

Thankfully, a kind human saw the dog and called a rescue organization immediately. The woman waited with the dog until help arrived. The poor pup was so depleted that she couldn’t even wake up. Her face was swollen, likely from a bite from another animal. It is unclear if it was from another stray dog or cat that fought her for food or if it was from an encounter with a hungry wild animal.

The rescue ambulance pulled up soon after. The woman who found the dog was so relieved to see them! These animal rescuers were amazing! They had their own state-of-the-art vehicle, uniforms, and plenty of equipment in case an animal needed urgent intervention. The rescuers called the vet clinic and told them they were bringing a dog, that was in bad shape, straight over.

Once they loaded the dog into the ambulance, they gave her IV fluids. This helped tremendously! When they arrived at the clinic, the dog had perked up a bit and was able to walk from the crate into the exam room. She proved that she was disoriented and had never been inside a building before. She walked straight into the glass windows. But luckily she didn’t hurt herself.

The dog, who was so sweet and calm, was then put up on the exam table. The initial fluids had worn off and she lapsed back into a semi-conscious state. This, of course, alarmed the vet. He put an IV back in and gave her more fluids. The veterinarian also administered pain medication. The doctor believes that the wound on her face was so painful that it caused the dog to go into shock.

The exhausted dog fought for her life. Her bloodwork came back and she had an infection. Things were touch and go but thankfully with successful antibiotics and 10 days at the clinic, the dog improved drastically. Some amazing news came next for the deserving pup, which you can see in the video below. We love a happy ending!
