What is the Isabella Paws Fund?
The FMSPCA created a special fund for injured, abused and neglected animals. This was started just a few days after the 1st annual walk to end animal abuse. There has been many cases where the FMSPCA has turned to this fund for the well-being of animals who have required intensive surgery and medical costs. The name comes from an 11 week old puppy who showed a horrible case of animal abuse. Isabella also known as Izzy is an adorable dog full of life. If you seen a photo of her in her casts and compared it to how she acts now, you never would have thought that anything this bad has happened to her.
There have been many cases of animal abuse in Fort McMurray just to name a few:
-Oscar, a cat who was found in a dumpster by safe way.
-Asia, a dog who was also found in a dumpster with her legs bound.
-Isabella, a dog who had injury up on injury to her little 11 week old body
-Cricket, abandoned by its owner and lost 50% of its body weight and also developed liver issues
-6 sled dogs, living in substandard conditions and some were under weight and suffering from various health problems.
-2 kittens locked in a kennel thrown on the side of tower road.
-5 puppies (1-2 weeks old) diseased found in a dumpster. The bag looked like it was ran over
-newest case “Triumph” a husky who was brought it with buckshot’s all throughout his body and a broken leg (it had to be amputated) Triumph is in such great spirits and I got to meet him last weekend!
