"Ebony" Is Rescued by District Personnel

On Tuesday during the workday, district employees at the new downtown elementary school found a five month old stray puppy that had been hit by a car on Pace Blvd.

Employees pulled the dog from the street and took her to the nearest veterinarian.  Unfortunately, the first vet quoted something like $3,000.00 to fix the shattered pelvis and femur that the dog suffered in the accident.

The employees then contacted safe harbor veterinary clinic, and these veterinarians agreed to help this stray for substantially less money.

Employees have taken up a collection to help cover the costs and have sent the below email and picture:

Hello all,

Yes.... we named the stray puppy EBONY. The vet said she is about 5 months old. She is doing well. Safe Harbor will fix her leg. They said her pelvis will most likely heal on it's own. They are very hopeful for her recovery. The only worry is her bodily functions, they are hoping the that will be okay. We will see in a couple of days. Thanks for your continued contributions. I did give Safe Harbor the money that was collected to help cover some of the cost to fix broken leg and medicines. Please pray for her. Safe Harbor Vets are awesome!!!!

Her picture is attached.
