Paralyzed Dog Abandoned At Shelter With Heartbreaking Note Still Needs Home
Meet Genie – a paralyzed dog that was left by her owners at a shelter because they could no longer take care of her. The note they left was heartbreaking:
“Please help my Genie. Genie (her name) is paralyzed from I believe her hips to her hind legs. I tried to manage her pain with medication from her vet but they only ease her pain and she needs surgery. I cannot afford so I ask that the Animal Health Center heal her and find her a loving forever home. Thank you.”
On Wednesday, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay shared an update on Genie that she has seen a vet. She is confirmed to have a herniated disc in her lumbar spine that is causing her paralysis. Genie however will not get an operation and instead will get some wheels to help her walk.
