Emaciated Poodle With Acid Burns Found Unresponsive In Field Has Long Road To Recovery

Meet Junie.

Her life had a rough start, and she almost didn’t make it.

The 6-month-old poodle mix was found unresponsive and in critical condition abandoned in a field. She was rescued just in time and arrived at Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs emaciated with infected wounds and acid burns covering her tiny body from color dye spread across her fur coat.

The frail pup was terrified and in need of emergency care. She was rushed to an animal hospital where she received fluids and started on a nutritious diet.

It will take many months for sweet Junie to recover. She is learning that not all humans are bad and is the definition of resilient. The shelter contacted Greater Good Charities’ Emergency Animal Medical fund to help cover her ongoing medical bills.

Every day sick and injured animals arrive at shelters, and most are already at capacity. They cannot turn them away, but their limited budgets make it difficult to provide the medical care they need. That is why the Emergency Animal Medical fund was started to help save their lives.

Junie will be showered with love and kindness and get a second chance at love, with your support. The shelter shared with us, “She continued to fight, as her desire to survive grew. She truly is a miracle.”

Pets receiving critical care facilitated by an Emergency Animal Medical grant may not be eligible for adoption until they have completed their course of treatment. If you would like to inquire about adoption of a specific animal, we strongly encourage you to visit the shelter’s specific website first as that is often the most up to date place to learn about available pets and review the adoption policies and process. Check out Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs’ website for more updates on Junie.

Help us meet our goal of $3,100 to heal Junie’s injuries. Your support will not only give her the hope to keep fighting, but your donations will help cover the ongoing care she will need.
