EATONTOWN – A fundraiser has been started for a dog who had been struck by a car.
According to the Monmouth County SPCA, Cecelia was struck by a car and then wedged herself under another car that had stopped to help her. As a result, she had a fractured tibia, road rash, a cut tongue, a broken tooth, and was in shock.
She was brought to the shelter and put on oxygen and fluids as well as pain medication. The ultrasound confirmed that she had no internal injuries that would be fatal. Once stable, she was transferred to a pet hospital for additional treatment for shock, pain, wound therapy and to prevent infection.
“Cecelia’s owner was found through her microchip and he has made the decision, in her best interest, to surrender her to our care,” the shelter said. “We’re seeking donations to support sweet Cecelia’s medical journey – it will be a long road for this girl to feel better, but with your help, we know she’ll get there.”
