I called her Gillie since I found her on Gillepsie street in 5th Ward.
I paid for the vet to examine her and vaccinate. The vet said she looks to be pittie, lab, and maybe something else. She had fleas and ticks, which she is now on medication for – the ticks were removed – as well as ear drops since the poor thing had infected ears. Gillie is also heartworm positive.
Was scanned for a chip, no collar or tag. They have estimated her age at 2.5 years. It looks like she has been bred, they said. Is currently intact, but once her nutrition is back up, can have her spayed. She currently weighs 32 and could stand to gain at least five pounds. I couldn’t just leave her when she was visibly hungry.
So now, she’s boarded at my vet which is wonderful for her but not a great long-term solution. I am willing to to help with medical expenses, but I need to find a home or foster for this little girl.
I am getting ALL negative feedback from the rescue groups. One even advised that I should have her put to sleep rather than taken to BARC (Houston’s animal control center). My heart aches for her.
