Trio Animal Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating animals in need, was recently contacted about a female pitbull that was in dire need of emergency medical attention. The two-year-old pup, named Trinity, weighed in at a mere 25 pounds and was literally starving to death. Her condition was so critical that she should not have been alive.
Upon arrival, Trinity’s condition was beyond shocking. She had pressure sores with frostbite on and around every area that came in contact with the ground. It was evident that some parts of her skin were even stuck to the ground and pulled away. The frostbite had caused the edges of her ears to become serrated like a knife. Trinity’s body was damaged by below zero temperatures and starvation, with not one part of her body left untouched.
Trinity was immediately started on IV fluids to prevent her body from shutting down. X-rays revealed several metal pellets throughout her abdominal area, leading to the belief that Trinity was most likely shot with a BB or pellet gun. The abuse she suffered was so severe that the rescue team had to prioritize which area to address first. The biggest concern was refeeding syndrome, which could cause seizures, an inability to breathe, heart failure, organ failure, and even death if not addressed properly.
For at least a week, Trinity was fed four small meals throughout the day to prevent refeeding syndrome. As her body adjusted, her food intake gradually increased, taking a full month before Trinity’s body could handle a full meal. Despite all of the pain and suffering Trinity had endured, she remained incredibly sweet and forgiving, just wanting love and affection.
Trinity’s condition was so severe that she needed physical therapy. With significant muscle atrophy in her legs and hind area, she couldn’t even sit properly. The main goal of physical therapy was to stimulate her muscles, work on balance, and prevent additional pressure sores.
After 30 days of rehabilitation, Trinity made a full recovery and was ready to go into a foster home. Despite all the trauma she had experienced, Trinity had found a way to trust humans and was always eager to play and interact with her new friends. She is a happy, sweet girl who deserves nothing but love and affection.
In conclusion, Trinity’s rescue story is a testament to the incredible work done by Trio Animal Foundation in rescuing and rehabilitating animals in need. Despite the unimaginable pain and suffering she had endured, Trinity’s love and forgiveness show the incredible resilience and capacity for healing that animals possess. Her story serves as a reminder to us all to be kind to animals and to support organizations like Trio Animal Foundation in their efforts to help animals in need.
