Warren animal shelter seeking donations after rescuing badly injured dog

WARREN, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) - A local animal shelter is asking for the community's help as they care for a badly injured dog rescued after being shot multiple times.

A Facebook post by the I Heart Dogs Rescue and Animal Haven in Warren says the dog, named Adira, was rescued from a home in southwest Detroit on Wednesday. They say the animal had been shot multiple times with birdshot, with one shot piercing her eyeball.

The facility had to transfer Adira to a specialist with Blue Pearl and treatment is getting costly. Adira needs eye surgery and possible CT scans to determine what happens next. Officials at the facility are hoping to receive donations for financial support and say they need as much as $20,000 to cover the medical expenses.
