THE STORY:

Friday night, 2 of our volunteers were at ACCT Philly to pick up our newest TINY. While waiting for paperwork to be processed, they did their usual distribution of treats in the small dog room, As they made their rounds, in the corner kennel, they find a terrified, bright-eyed chihuahua, covered in blood head to paw, wounds on his legs, struggling to breathe, in obvious pain and distress! Just then, a kennel attendant and vet tech walk into the room take him from his kennel to be EUTHANIZED. This poor baby had been hit by a car and brought in by Philadelphia Police. Although there is a 2 day stray hold, due to his injuries, the decision had already been made to euthanize him by the shelter. This little dog had cheated death once.. And was about to do it a second time! After a few phone calls were made, they walked out with him, wrapped up and in their arms! He was medicated for pain, cleaned up with the help of our vet tech volunteer and off to VESC to determine the extent of his injuries. After several X-rays, he was found to have abrasions, muscle injuries, facial trauma, and 2 fractures in his jaw that would require immediate surgery!! He was kept safe and comfortable overnight and emergency surgical repair of his jaw scheduled on Saturday, after office hours, with Dr Patel at Woodbourne Animal Clinic. The surgery went well and he was released back into our care Saturday evening. His recovery is slow and painful and getting him to drink and eat has been a challenge but thanks to our dedicated volunteers, he's getting whatever he needs, including subQ fluids and pain meds around the clock. Because we were able to give him a fighting chance... That's what we named him.. CHANCE
