NAUGATUCK, Conn. (WTNH) — Naugatuck Animal Control took in Lucky, an abused dog, after she was involved in a cruelty case.
When Lucky arrived she was undernourished, dehydrated and in desperate need of life-saving surgery for growths on her belly and a hole in her upper mouth.
On December 11, Lucky had her first surgery and came through it “like a champ.”
As of December 12, the hospital has received $3,000 in donations to help pay for the procedures. Naugatuck Animal Control estimates that Lucky’s surgeries will cost under $5,000.
Donations received beyond what’s necessary will be held by the veterinary hospital for future animals in need.
Anyone who wants to help can send a donation to Naugatuck Veterinary Hospital at 562B Rubber Avenue, Naugatuck, CT 06770. There must be a note on the envelope that says it’s for Lucky.
Naugatuck Animal Control has asked that anyone interested in adopting Lucky not call them. A website specially dedicated to Lucky’s adoption will be up in the next couple weeks.
