|Clementine after she is picked up at Leech Lake Rez|
Clementine snarfed down a pocket pill that contained pain meds but is unable to eat. The vet checked her out, and said she needs to be sedated and the quills removed. She is suffering too much. The staff at the clinic assured us that the sedation they used would be safe for the pups, but at this moment, it was more critical to take care of Clementine who was obviously in so much pain. We gave the okay for them to sedate Clementine and remove as many of the quills as they are able. They suspect she is about ready to have her pups any time.
Leech Lake Legacy has reached out to partner shelters and rescues. We are planning to transport her to the cities on Sunday and are hoping one of our rescue or shelter partners (with a foster network) will be able to take her in. Please send positive thoughts Clementine's way ....
The three pups who were also brought into Animal Care Clinic (Cash, Cinderelly and Chicory) were also checked out. They are being treated for mange, fleas and chewing lice, and we are also working on placement for these sweeties.
With today's intake of Clementine and the 3 pups, our medical emergency fund is taking a big hit. If you are able to contribute even a small amount to help us replenish our medical fund it would be greatly appreciated.
