Young Puppy Has Bullet Lodged In Her Spine And Needs Help

AUSTIN – Danali, a 4 month old puppy at Austin Pets Alive!, has a bullet lodged in her spine and she needs your help.

A Good Samaritan recently found the puppy dragging herself along the road near Montopolis and Riverside, and brought her to the center. That’s where veterinarians discovered she had been shot and that the bullet was lodged in her spine, keeping her from moving her hind legs.

Veterinarians have told APA that the boxer mix has a good chance of being able to move her legs with the help of a specialty surgeon.

“There’s no guarantee that she will ever walk again, but this is the best chance at getting her the best quality of life that she could get,” said Danali’s foster Mom and APA employee Faith Valasek.

The problem?

APA doesn’t have the money to cover the cost of surgery. So the shelter is asking for the public’s help in raising $2,000 by Feb. 3, the soonest the surgeon is available to work on her.

You can go here to donate.

If you have any information about who may have shot Danali, you should call 911.
