Sassy's story!!!

 Wednesday, March 27th, Sassy was rescued from the Miami shelter by S.H.A.R.E- Shepherd Help and Rescue Effort. She was left in an abandoned fourcolsure with no food or means to escape. Sassy, as she is called, was emaciated and minimally responsive. S.H.A.R.E brought her to Hollywood Animal Hospital where she received emergency critical care from Dr. Bello.

Friday, Dr. Jennifer Bibevski took here to surgery to explore her abdomen and hopefully correct some of the underlying causes of her condition. During the surgery, Dr. Bibevski, took samples of her organs for pathology to further evaluate her status.
With blood levels dangerously low, Sassy continued to receive critical supportive care that included plasma and nourishment.

Monday, she began to improve and today is walking and eating a bit on her own.
