LOMPOC, Calif- What started out as a sad story on the Central Coast News Facebook page has turned into a happy ending for a dog who was found stuck in a fence for several days.
The dog was seized by officers Wednesday after it had it's paw stuck in a fence for several days, said Shadow's Fund, a dog rescue group. The police had to take the dog to animal control, and because it is injured the rescue group was afraid it would be euthanized.
Meghan Olivera originally posted a plea for help on our Facebook page Wednesday night around 10:30. "This 5-6 yr old female was seized today by the police after spending 4 days hanging from a fence by her paw. She needs to know kindness, have a real home, and get the care she needs. Shadow's Fund will provide her medical care but we have no space. There is no time to wait. It's 10:30pm and we'll need a foster commitment by morning."
By the next morning Facebook fans had jumped to action and shared the dog's story enough times the rescue group said they had multiple people wanting to help. "We are reviewing applications for these potential fosters now. The dog, named Fifi, is at the VCA clinic in Arroyo Grande receiving care for her badly injured leg," wrote Jill Anderson with Shadows Fund.
