Lucy sustained a gunshot wound to the shoulder and required emergency surgery. The surgery went well and Lucy is still recovering in the medical department at the Newark facility where she is feeling like one happy and lucky little lady these days.
Lucy’s family has the other two dogs at home, who were unharmed and well taken care of, and were just devastated about what happened to Lucy.
“Once Lucy is healed, she will be going back home as well. Lucy’s family was not prepared for the $4000 medical bill that we incurred for taking Lucy to the hospital to save her life but in the end, Lucy will wind up back in her good home, with her good family, and that is what we like to see,” AHS said.“Picking up the tab in a case like this unexpected accident is obviously a bit difficult for us but was the right thing to do. Our Res-Q Fund is designed specifically for the special needs and emergency cases and that fund has been stretched quite thin recently so we would like to ask that if you can, please consider making a donation to our Res-Q Fund,” the AHS added.
