Please Help Baby Girl - Coastal GSR
We are asking for your help, once again pleading to our supporters. No amount is too small, please share with your friends and family. Baby Girl has until Tuesday to be rescued!
Gentle, sweet, curious, with all of the innocence of a puppy, Baby Girl sat in her kennel as our volunteers approached, a bowl of water, a bucket of kibble, and a cement floor strewn with excrement that she was unable to avoid. We learned of her story from the shelter. This 8 to 9 month old girl had been hit by a car and brought to the shelter with a broken leg. Now the shelter was asking us to help. Baby Girl looked up at our volunteers with sad eyes, those that we have seen many times before, the ones that have already accepted their fate. As she heard the kind voice, she struggled to stand. She hobbled slowly over, crying with each step as she tried to touch her foot to the ground, quickly lifting it as she realized that her leg could bear no weight. So hungry was she for human attention that she was willing to bear any amount of pain.
She finally made her way to the volunteers and, suddenly, the puppy spirit began to shine through. She gave everyone a gentle greeting, but continued to look for reassurance, soaking in the physical touch like a sponge soaking up water, leaning into the person as though she could meld into their body and become one. She finally had hope.
Unfortunately, sometimes hope is short-lived. The shelter will not release her until Friday. At that point, her leg will require surgery. Without at least half of the funds to pay a surgeon up front, we will not be able to get her the medical care she needs.
As our volunteers watched her go back into the kennel, they saw before them the hope begin to fade. She laid at the kennel front, watching quietly as they walked away. Tonight she remains in the shelter, a bowl of water, a bucket of kibble, her excrement on the floor. Our volunteers made a promise as they walked away, a promise to do whatever they could to come back and get this little girl. They dubbed her Baby Girl in the hopes of being able to give her a real name when she is safe. But if we are not able to help her, at least she will have been known as something more than a kennel number.
Coastal GSR San Diego has been challenged at every turn in just the short months of 2011. Our Medical Fund will not cover another surgery. The surgeon estimates this baby girl's surgery at $2500 to $3,000. We have between today and Friday, April 8th, to raise at least half of that amount. We want to get her out of the shelter and into medical care as soon as possible. They shelter has promised that if we can't raise the money by Friday, they will give us until Tuesday, the 12th. If we are not able to help her by then, her fate will be sealed.
We promise, youth will not be wasted on this young baby girl. She is waiting for someone to love, her first kiss, her first hug, to run in the yard with her family, to feel the sandy beach between her toes. Please help us give her hope. Please help us give her a tomorrow.
