A couple of weeks ago, Kalamazoo Animal Rescue received a concerned call from Kalamazoo County Animal Services. They had just received an emaciated female Chihuahua with a broken front leg and sores all over her petite body. KAR wasted no time in retrieving the pup—now named Lexi—bringing her to the Southwest Michigan Animal Hospital right away.
It was discovered that Lexi had a right radius and ulna fracture which was repaired by securing a plate to her bones. Lexi spent two days in the hospital recuperating and rehydrating and eating everything in sight. While in the hospital Lexi’s story was shared on our Facebook page, and touched the heart of a generous lady who reached out to the rescue wanting to help.
Kalamazoo Animal Rescue has been asked not to share the name of Lexi’s guardian angels so with respect to their wishes we will call them Love and Kindness.
Love saw Lexi’s story and it touched her heart so much that over the following week, with the help of Kindness, she started to receive donations from her clients to help Lexi. Meanwhile, Lexi was transitioning perfectly into her foster home and becoming part of the family.
Little Lexi Lou Who, as her foster family calls her, spends her days relaxing on a couch and her nights sleeping under the covers of her foster mom and dad’s bed. When they took her to a routine vet visit, Lexi was determined to be about 4 years old, lacking in proper nutrition and the sores are the result of resting on the floor of a wire cage for so long it calloused her skin. It has not been determined how Lexi broke her leg, but that sometimes happens with little dogs that jump from high distances.
Little Lexi Lou Who met Love and Kindness a few days later. They brought her treats, played with her and took lots of pictures. In addition, Love donated a check to Kalamazoo Animal Rescue in the amount of $600 to go towards Lexi’s operation expenses!!! Kalamazoo Animal Rescue would like to thank Love and Kindness for their generosity in sponsoring Lexi. Like so many others out there, Little Lexi Lou Who deserves all that we can give her! Please consider sponsoring one of our many deserving animals. Every little bit counts.
