Noelle is a very sweet Pittie mix who was scheduled to be euthanized on Christmas at a high kill NYC shelter. Noelle didn’t stand a chance since her leg was broken and the shelter does not evaluate dogs that come in sick or with an injury. They are just placed on the “Euth list” and their sentence is carried out within a couple of days. Noelle’s sentence was to be carried out on 12/24/2011…Christmas Eve.
We specialize in the rescue of the ones left behind, the least likely to get adopted and the most likely to be put to sleep inside the shelter walls. Noelle was a perfect candidate. It was a race against time and with only hours to spare, Noelle was pulled from the shelter into the safe hands of SNK9. Noelle was saved on Christmas day and was taken to Pompton Lakes Animal Hospital for treatment of the broken leg. Since she was saved on Christmas Eve, we felt the name Noelle suited her better then her shelter name “Hilda”. We owe a huge thanks to Zani’s Furry Friends rescue (NYC) for helping us get Noelle to safety.
Noelle spent nearly a month at the hospital healing her broken leg and later a foot infection on the same leg. She was finally released at the end of January and went to her foster home, with the assistance of another great rescue located by the Jersey shore, Rescue Ridge. Noelle’s cast has been removed and she is healing beautifully, receiving tons of love from her foster friends.
Noelle is another one of many examples of how working together saves lives. We were not afraid to ask for help from others and others were not affraid to step with us into the “unknown” and save an innocent life!
Noelle is spayed and up to date with all her shots. All she now needs is a loving family to share her life with.
