Sally was found by a woman on April 18th chained to a post with no food, water or shelter. Her body was covered in bite wounds from a attack.  The woman called 911 immediately.  After an hour she contacted local media stations and the Bakersfield City animal control office.  Animal Control arrived and rushed Sally to their shelter.  Bakersfield City Animal Care Center’s veterinarian Dr. Duquette began working to stabilize her while Animal Control called Marley’s Mutts for rescue.  Sally was transferred to Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital where they treated her around the clock.  Dr. Anielski of Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital estimates that Sally was left outside for 2-3 days before she was found.  Sally has no wounds around her muzzle, a typical characteristic of a “Bait Dog”.  It is common practice to bind the bait dogs mouth shut so they can’t fight back.  Sally was released from BVH and taking into the home of our foster Nancy Crone.  She continues to recover in her loving care and should heal completely with time.

Sally is not currently ready for her forever home, but will be soon.  If you want to be considered as an adoptive family for Sally, fill out the application below.
