HELP ME GET SEEN & ADOPTED!
4/14/2018 – With immense sadness and a heavy heart, we have to announce that our precious princess, Kira, has become the most beautiful angel. Words cannot express the heartache the NYBC family, both near and far, is feeling but we want to extend our sincerest gratitude at this time for your loving support and compassion toward Kira and her amazing mommy, Lauren. Kira faced cancer with the brightest smile, happiest tail. She was and will continue to be an inspiration to all. Her optimistic energy will live on within each of us that have grown to love and adore her.
She was saved almost one year ago from the streets of Puerto Rico and has spent the past 6 months here with her momma living the fullest life filled with new friends and adventures. We are blessed to have been a part of her journey and grateful for the joy she has given us. When you think of Kira, we hope you smile with love. Run free baby girl with the angels.
Rest in sweet peace, Kira.
Little one, you are so deeply loved.
Our first recipient under the Mr. Hicks & Naji Cancer Fund is Kira. Kira is a young owner surrender from Puerto Rico that is suffering from multiple squamous cell carcinoma masses. Unable to afford surgery and treatment, Kira’s owner made the selfless decision to surrender her to New York Bully Crew hoping that we can give her loved pet hope and a future without pain. Being a single mom with two children making minimum wage, caring for a dog with advanced cancer in dire need of surgery is an impossible task. Kira is under 2 years old and is relatively healthy besides the tumors and skin condition. Kira has been receiving supportive care since she was brought into the hospital. She presented with high temperature and in awful pain. Kira also presented with deep pyroderma, skin infections with pus and open sores. Antibiotics and pain medications have been administered. After consulting with our veterinarian in Puerto Rico and several board certified specialists in dermatology and radiology, Kira will be undergoing front, left leg amputation this Wednesday. The two huge masses on the front left leg have started to affect the growth of her bones. She is in severe pain and after multiple consults, all involved that this is the safest and best approach for sweet Kira. She will also have 2 other cancerous masses removed, 1 other left rear leg and another in the thorax region. All tumors are on her left side which points to Kira favoring laying in the sun and favoring one side.We ask for your compassion and prayers for Kira at this time. She is a sweet, young girl that has the possibility of life ahead of hear with your help.
