UPDATE: Perla did wonderful! She is recovering really well. One of our vet techs took her home overnight to give her some extra love and care. We are so grateful for all the well-wishes and support for this girl and all our shelter pets. Thank you!  

It’s not too late to make a gift to help Perla and shelter pets just like her get the urgent care they need.  We couldn’t do it without you!

We need to get help quickly for this girl. Perla was surrendered through a local animal control officer (ACO). She has a badly fractured leg and the ACO has turned the 1 y/o over to Second Chance so she can get the help she needs. X-rays reveal a complicated fracture of both the tibia and fibula that cannot be repaired. She also has an open wound on her ankle. We kept her as comfortable as we could overnight.   Today our vets hope to perform an amputation so we can get her on the road to recovery and her ‘second chance.’

Perla did great overnight. She is a very sweet, happy girl. She will likely be going to surgery within the next two hours or so. We will update you once she’s out of surgery.

We’re asking for help. With all the shelter pets we are seeing who need extensive medical care, we would greatly appreciate any help if you are able – your support will help Perla and pets like her get the urgent care they need.
