– A BRAVE GIRL TRYING TO SURVIVE IN A CRUEL WORLD
Earlier this month our crew got a call about a dog wandering the streets of Detroit severely injured and emaciated. We rushed to the location and we were horrified and heartbroken to see the condition of the dog, now named Violet. She had too many bite wounds, both old and new, to even count and many of which were severely infected. Violet was cowering in the corner of an open garage looking both sad and terrified. We slowly secured Violet and then rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital for care where it was determined that she is also heartworm positive.
We know that dog fighting is rampant in Detroit and by our observation of Violet’s wounds and her lack of care we believe that she may have been the victim of this illegal activity which preys upon the innocent.
The good news is…..Violet’s horrible life on the streets of Detroit, being abused and mistreated, is over. We know that one day soon, the memory of the trauma Violet has endured at the hands of her abusers will fade away and be replaced with the reality of her brand new wonderful life, with a family in a home that she deserves.
We want to thank everyone who has donated towards Violet’s expensive veterinary bills and who has sent us messages of hope and encouragement for this precious girl. For those that would like to donate towards her ongoing care please go to
