Lucy Needs Our Help
Local Burn Victim Needs Medical Care and a New Home
Lucy is a four-year-old bull terrier that recently had two small puppies. Lucy was forced to sleep outdoors in a makeshift doghouse in her owner’s yard, covered with a tarp and space heater. The tarp caught fire and her puppies were sadly killed. It is thought that Lucy was trying to protect her puppies and that is why she did not run away. The kind-hearted veterinarians of VCA Norwalk were able to save Lucy. She is very badly burned, but is expected to make a full recovery. We are establishing a fund for Lucy's treatment. Please help, if you can. Every dollar counts.
Lucy will need a home upon her release. She is a sweet, loving dog. If you are interested in adopting Lucy, please complete an application on our website and questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or call, 203-326-0216..

Responsible Dog Ownership
It is winter. Dogs should not be outside any longer than we would. Frostbite and hypothermia are deadly conditions. Do not adopt, buy or give a home to a pet unless you have permission from your landlord or it is in your lease. Please call Animal Control or the Police if you see animals outdoors for long periods of time or any other alarming condition. We are their voice. Please tell friends, neighbors, and contacts to spay or neuter their pets. OPIN offers low cost and no cost "SNIPS" in Stamford- thousands of programs exist in the United States. Please help us prevent this horrible event from happening somewhere else.
Please make checks payable to OPIN. Memo: Lucy and mail to: P.O. BOX 488, Riverside, CT, 06878.
