Dog shot twice in Louisiana is now recovering in Mississippi
VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A 2-year-old Great Dane shot twice in the head Lafayette, Louisiana, is now recovering at a volunteer animal shelter in Vicksburg, Mississippi.
The Vicksburg Post reports the dog named Riley was shot about eight months ago and rushed to a veterinarian by a witness. Blind in one eye that’s backed by a bullet and partially blind in the other eye, Riley is still in recovery. She’s is now being cared for at Helping Animals Reach Tomorrow, which is trying to help her recover from malnourishment and prepare for adoption.
Shelter co-founder Alexa Jeffers has said that the organization is run solely on a volunteer-basis by her and co-founder Bethany Johnson. The 20-year-old said Vicksburg has no animal control, humane society or pound. The shelter is not a registered nonprofit.
