Mookie was dumped at the Bridgeport Animal Shelter with a severe leg injury. She was lying in the cage with a dirty old bandage, falling off of her hind leg. Her tendon was severed and she had major leg abrasions.
The Bridgeport Shelter did nothing but ignore her for her entire stay and when we found her she was soaked with urine and feces. We immediately had her seen by two Veterinarians who determined that she needed an orthopedic specialist. Further examination showed that the ligaments could no longer be attached and a plate was necessary. The surgery on her leg cost over $1,700.00, which has depleted our emergency fund.
