When: Saturday, October 7th, 2017 

Where: Nickel Plate District Amphitheatre in Fishers 

Why: To help fund the shelter's Survivor Program!

It's no secret how much I love my baby...so when HSHC shared Ellie's story with me, I knew I needed to help.  Please read and kindly support MY Woof It & Hoof It Team in honor of Ellie.



The Fighter in this Corner Weighs in at 3lbs...

Our  team received a call from Animal Control that a young Yorkie had been  reported as hit-by-a-car and needed emergency care. Without a microchip  or tags, we had no way of knowing who the owner was, so we made the call  to fund her stabilization through our Survivor Program in hopes an  owner would come forward.

Our hope that this pup would  need only stabilization was shattered when the ER called with  devastating news.  Their assessment was that she had sustained a brain  injury when the car hit her.  The estimated her age to be 8 months old,  and with no other injuries to her body, it was clear the head trauma  explained why she was unable to walk and could no longer see.  We were  advised she would likely not survive the night.  That evening we  received a call from Ellie's owner sharing with her the guarded  prognosis. Her owner was unable to cover any medical  care for Ellie and decided to surrender her to us. 

At  just 8 months old, we couldn't bare the idea of not giving this girl at  least 24 hours to show what kind of fight she had in her.  We've seen so  many miracles, and maybe she could be one too.

 The phone call from the ER that next morning did give us hope--she was  sitting up.  She still couldn't see or walk, but she was alert. We  dipped into our Survivor Fund for another 24 hours of critical  care...and it paid off.  She was now trying to pull herself with her  front legs and pottying with help...but still couldn't see.  Another 24  hours in the ICU, and Ellie was stable. As with most brain injuries,  only time would tell if she would regain her eyesight or ability to  walk. 

Ellie spent the next several weeks  in a foster home.  It was about a week into her fostership when we  received a text message from her foster mom with the following note:

"I just got home, and she was on my bed wagging her tail!  She jumped up on my bed!"

And  not only that, Ellie did regain her eyesight.  This 3lb Yorkie refused  to give up, and so did we.  Ellie received a clean bill of health and is  now in her forever home, but we are still trying to raise the $3,500 to cover her medical expenses.   We must replenish our Survivor Fund so the next "Ellie", abuse victim  or old soul with special medical needs that arrives will have the same  opportunity.

It's your tax-deductible donations to our Survivor Program that make these success stories possible.
