The lab-terrier mix shelter staffers have named Faith is lucky to be alive after being rescued from truly horrendous conditions in Coal Center, PA.
She was rescued by a Humane Society Police Officer, who found her starving, trapped in a crate that was filled with animal waste. An investigation has been opened to determine who is responsible.
Faith weighed in at just 20 pounds and a Facebook post on the shelter’s site said she was “a 1.5 out of a 9 on the body mass scale.” Clearly, it said, Faith had been starved.
She has since been thoroughly bathed and given both fluids and a feeding tube.
An update Wednesday morning said that Faith had done very well in her first overnight. Her care will continue at the shelter until she is adoption-ready.
