Kelly is a two-year-old Boxer/American Staffordshire Terrier mix recently rescued by Save a Life Pet Rescue. During her short time with Save a Life, Kelly has grown very fond of her temporary foster mom and has illustrated her intense love for and devotion to caring individuals. In early September, Kelly and her foster mom were on a walk when a five-foot diamondback rattlesnake lunged for the Kelly’s foster mom. As a heroic and loyal dog, Kelly attacked and killed the snake before it could strike her foster mom, potentially saving the woman’s life.
Although Kelly ultimately killed the snake, she was bit in the face by the snake in the process. To save Kelly’s life, Kelly’s foster mom rushed her to an emergency veterinary clinic, where they administered IV fluids, antibiotics, pain relievers, and bandages for almost a week. Save a Life Pet Rescue agreed to pay all of Kelly’s veterinary bills, totaling $2,500, to keep Kelly alive and well. Fortunately, Kelly survived the snake attack and is getting stronger every day.
As a non-profit organization, costly emergency medical bills like Kelly's are especially difficult for Save a Life Pet Rescue to pay without the generous support of donors.
