In August, New York Bully Crew was made aware of a severely wounded female dog on the streets of Puerto Rico being chased out of an alley by men with sticks.
She was covered in bubbled, raw, open wounds and living amongst filth. She looked like she had been burned which is not uncommon in Puerto Rico.
Our rescuers were able to obtain her and brought her to the vet office to receive immediate medical care.
She was not well enough to receive vaccines. She had infections running throughout her system, plus her eye was oozing with infection.
Her body was raw and in pain. We named her Nana. Although she had huge clusters of raw flesh that were biopsied and diagnosed as skin cancer,
this amazingly happy, sweet, little girl greets everyone with a wiggle, a smile and and loves to talk to you.
Finally, she was able to travel to NYBC and Nana is doing well in foster but her daily routine is exhausting. She gets medicated baths, must wear pajamas daily to cover her raw open sores from the skin cancer so she is protected from bacteria and she must be covered in antibiotic ointment. She has had skin cancer removal surgery which resembled being sawed in half, to reduce the affected area. Her monthly chemotherapy treatments cost between $900-$1300 per treatment.
She has responded extremely well to the protocol and we are so proud of her!
Can you help us continue to help Nana live a life filled with love and comfort?
