"Hope" has had a dreary life thus far. When she was seized as part of a 47-dog fighting ring by the St. Martin Parish Sheriff, it was obvious what she was used for. She is covered in scars from old wounds and has lost vision in one eye and has limited vision in the other. She is also hard of hearing.
Fortunately for this seven-year-old, Last Hope Rescue has tagged her and is sending her to a foster in Rhode Island who will give her TLC during her HW treatment and help to rehabilitate her.
Hope needs to get to Memphis, TN, by next Friday, Aug. 25, in time to catch a 2:30 p.m. ground transport to R.I. We could send her Friday morning; however, the time will be tight, as she needs to get there by 1:30 p.m. in order to go from the airport to where the ground transport crew is assembled. Hopefully, if we send her either Wednesday or Thursday, the rescue can line up a foster to care for her until Friday. We are sending food with her to provide easy transition.
Hope is also called "Gummy Bear
" by the shelter staff and her foster home. She has been in foster care since the February seizure date and is apparently enjoying just hanging out. She is gaining weight and her health is improving daily.
Hope will need a medium crate. Please help her get to her destination.
