American Dog Rescue Helps Chrissy Get Back on Her Feet

Abused, injured and abandoned, Chrissy was in desperate need of some helpful humans. Though the cause of her injuries still isn’t known, their severity was clear: Chrissy needed extensive surgery to repair two pelvic fractures, two fractured and displaced femurs and two displaced knees.

After being rescued by members of the Choctaw Indian tribe who loved her dearly but didn’t have the resources to properly nurse her back to health, Chrissy was taken in by the Humane Society of South Mississippi. HSSM staff took to Chrissy instantly as well, leading them to locate a veterinarian who would perform all of Chrissy’s surgery for the discounted rate of $3,000 and begin pleading their case to the Humane Society of the United States.

HSUS agreed to pay for half of the expenses, and reached out to national council member Arthur E. Benjamin to see if he would be willing to pay the other half with a contribution through American Dog Rescue.

Arthur agreed, and thanks to the contributions by ADR and HSUS Chrissy is currently recovering at HSSM. We’ll provide future updates when this little angel finds a foster and/or forever home.
