Woot! Woot! The shelter is done!
March 2012 update:
Sienna is doing so much better! Thanks to you and one very generous donor, we’ll be able to complete her shelter very soon!

This poor sway-backed girl is our newest arrival. We aren’t sure if she’s going to make it, but we are going to give her a chance. She came to us extremely malnourished and dehydrated. She was living in an area without water or electricity, and really needs to put on some weight. At the vet, she was rated 2 on a scale of 15, with 1 being at death’s door. Her legs are not quite right from carrying way too much weight for way too long, and she has some nodules as well. She received fluids at the vet’s to rehydrate her, and the next week or two will determine if she has the strength to pull through.
We estimate that she’s about 15 years old, but with the wear and tear on her she looks like 20. In addition, she has been abused, as you can see by the whip marks on her. Does any animal deserve to be treated this way?
December 2011 update: Look at Sienna now!
A few months later, and what a difference! She’s put on some weight and her coat is beginning to look better. She has a ways to go, but is definitely on the right track.
Here’s the shelter we are working on for her. It’s coming along well, and we’ve raised close to $600 of the $1500 needed.
Next will be the roof with temporary sheathing, which we hope will be on before the rains, wind, and snow come! Once we’ve raised the rest of the money, we’ll add permanent roofing materials and work on finishing out the details.
