Riblett, formerly known as Kate, was picked up as a stray and taken to Gwinnett County Animal Services. She had been hit by a car so on top of being emaciated at merely 20 lbs and filled with worms, she also had a badly fractured hip. We had a foster home open up for a young female puppy so when GCAS reached out to us for help, we just so happened to have the perfect foster home for this little girl. Riblett got her freedom ride on November 7th and we rushed her over to our vet at New Hope Animal Hospital. Dr. Leathers wants to wait about a month, long enough for Ribletts pelvis to heal, before performing FHO surgery on her hip. This procedure will remove the ball of her femur and allow her to heal more quickly and have less pain. She will also be spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and dewormed.
Although Ribletts history is unknown, we do know that she is full of love! Even with all of her pain, she wagged her tail and gave kisses, just happy to get and give attention. She is incredibly resilient. Riblett has recovered from her injuries and does not require surgery! She is a petite, sweet lady that was a little weary of strangers at first, but she is now happy soaking up all of the attention at our adoption events. Riblett needs to be the only pet in the home, but she would make the most adorable and incredible solo companion.
