When a 10-year-old poodle was rescued by an Animal Cruelty Task Force from the Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) last month, they had no idea if she would make it through the night.
The elderly dog, who rescuer named ‘Frannie’ had been stabbed 19 times and was found suffering from shock, trauma, and severe blood loss. “Initially we were very concerned whether she could recover because of the number of her wounds, the amount of blood loss and the trauma she suffered,” said Dr. Mark Wright, director of Shelter Medicine at HSMO.
However, thanks to her impressive will to live and the vital surgeries and days of intensive care she received from loving staff members, Frannie has made a miraculous recovery. “Frannie showed tremendous stamina and remarkable pluck,” Wright said. “She’s recovered nicely and should do well in her new home.”
A little over a month after the horrific attack, Frannie is finally getting to go home with one of the first responders that saved her life and wants to make sure she never experiences pain or suffering ever again. “Frannie has a legion of people who took an interest in her plight, donated toys and money to help us care for her and who wanted to adopt her,” said Kathy Warnick, president of HSMO. “We feel adopting her to this first-responder family will ensure her the safe and loving future she deserves. We are very grateful for all of the expressions of support and love we have received for Frannie.”
