Bella is a pup with special needs, rescued in Harbin, China by Slaughterhouse Survivors and with our help, was transported to the U.S. by True North Rescue Mission. She was one of the last few pups to be imported before the CDC’s travel ban went into effect on 7/14, prohibiting dogs from traveling to and from 113 countries, including China. As you can imagine, this ban was devastating for rescue organizations such as Slaughterhouse Survivors who dedicate their lives to rescuing dogs from dire situations. Our team flew out to LA in July to transport Bella to her foster home in NYC. Upon her arrival in New York, Bella was diagnosed with bilateral angular deformity of femurs with luxation of the stifle and tarsi. This means she has a malformation of her hips, therefore compromising mobility in her back legs. To prevent her from dragging her back legs, Bella will require the use of a wheelchair and ongoing physical therapy. We aimed to raise $10,000 for Bella's transport from China, her rehabilitation, and her longterm care.
