MSPCA-Angell – Update On Hero Dog Lilly Doing Well

Comments Off on MSPCA-Angell – Update On Hero Dog Lilly Doing Well

We have an extraordinary update to share about Lilly the hero Pit Bull! As her story has gone ‘round the world, so many of you have contributed towards her care. We have now raised about $60,000 for our Pet Care Assistance fund.

This fund, which is always in need of donations, helps support families such as Lilly’s, and helps pay medical care costs for homeless animals in our Adoption Centers, as well as for animals who arrive at the MSPCA as a result of cruelty cases.

We are thrilled beyond measure that all of Lilly’s care here at Angell will be paid for, and that her story will live on in all of the animals she will help in the future.

Thank you so much for your contributions, your well wishes and your many messages of support for Lilly, her family and the medical staff at Angell Animal Medical Center.

Oh, and here she is gettin’ her exercise on at Angell 🙂

Comments Off on Heroic Pit bull injured after saving owner from oncoming train near Boston

An 8-year-old Pit bull named Lilly is being credited with saving her owner from being struck and killed by a freight train late last week.

The harrowing situation took place on May 3 in Shirley, Mass. after Lilly’s guardian collapsed on the train tracks.

According to a story published today at My Fox Boston , the train’s engineer witnessed Lilly pulling her owner, Christine Spain, off of the tracks. Despite efforts to stop the train, Lilly was struck and suffered serious injuries.

The impact from the massive train de-gloved Lily‘s right foot and fractured her pelvis. The heroic dog also suffered several internal injuries. Unfortunately, the veterinarians were not able to save Lilly’s injured leg.

Thanks to Lilly’s amazing efforts, the woman who collapsed on the tracks did not suffer any injuries.

According to the report, even when first responders arrived to the scene, Lilly stayed by the side of her unconscious guardian.

Right now, Lilly is recovering from her injuries at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. Lilly’s veterinary expenses are high and a fund has been established to help raise what is necessary to facilitate her full recovery.
