Kashi - Found Emaciated and Abandoned



Our Animal Control Officer had a late night call to pick up a stray dog that was in someone's front yard in Barnegat. When he arrived on the scene, he knew that something was wrong as soon as he spotted this poor dog. She was just lying on the front lawn, very lethargic and thin as a rail. He scooped up this sickly little girl and brought her directly to an emergency clinic, where she was given fluids and made comfortable for the night.

When our veterinarian Dr. Baris came in the next morning and saw this little Labrador, she began examining her immediately and running tests to determine the cause of her sickly condition. Within minutes, she knew what the trouble was .. this poor little pup had an obstruction and was in grave danger.

Dr. Baris and our Popcorn Park Clinic veterinarian, Dr. Nalven, performed emergency surgery on this little pup and found that a good portion of her intestine had telescoped, and caused an obstruction. They carefully removed over two feet of intestine and once they did, blood started flowing again and they reattached the rest of the intestine. If they had gotten to this little girl any later, it may have been too late.

We have named this beautiful lab puppy Kashi and determined that she is only about 10 months old. We are guessing that someone abandoned this little pup when she became ill, because Kashi did not have the strength to run too far on her own. It's so very sad to think that she could have died in the street, all alone in the cold, if she had not been spotted.

Kashi's condition is still very guarded and we will know in the next 2 to 3 days if she will survive this terrible ordeal that she has been put through. She is not available for adoption at this time. We are again, asking for your thoughts and prayers for one our Popcorn Pets in need. Please send your well wishes Kashi's way, as she will be needing them through her recovery. We are so very proud of our Associated Humane Societies veterinarians, Dr. Baris and Dr. Nalven for again, coming to the rescue of another helpless animal that was abandoned. We are also so grateful to our supporters who contribute to our Res-Q Fund, which is the fund that enables us to help so many animals in need. Please help Kashi with a donation to our Res-Q Fund.

Thank you, as always, for your support.
