Carolina Helping Paws Rescue is an all volunteer, foster-based nonprofit. We are here to help save animals in our community and from high kill shelters.
The police department called Carolina Helping Paws Rescue regarding a puppy in rough shape. Star was found Christmas weekend lying in a park extremely weak and near death. She was in dire need of medical attention, and was immediately taken to the vet once she was rescued. Star is in very bad shape. She has had a seizure episode, seems to be blind, is extremely emaciated, along with an unknown diagnosis of brain injury.
Star is currently on I.V. fluids at the hospital and being carefully monitored until the prognosis is in. She may need and MRI or a cat scan to rule out any brain disfunction. This poor girl definitely is sweet. Star is around 5 months old and is as loving as can be.
Please consider donating and help Star fight for her life! Our vet is currently doing everything he can to save this poor baby and can't do it without your help!

Star is doing great! Her vision is good and her mobility is excellent. She will soon be ready for adoption. Although she still needs a checkup and to be spayed. We appreciate all of the monetary donations we have received for Star to get her to this point. Star deserves a chance to find her furever home after all she has been through. Please consider donating to help Star get ready for adoption:)

Dr. Gerard said that Star would need an MRI or a cat scan and that is could run about 1700.00 to 2000.00. We are a small rescue and totally depend on donations to help with vetting.
Her blood work came back really good. She is still on anti-inflammatory, antibiotics medications, and fluids. We are holding on to hope and asking for prayers, or positive thoughts for her recovery.
We want so badly to be able to have the MRI or cat scan but are in dire need of donations to make that happen for this baby.
Thank you all.
