Bella

Learn more about the BC SPCA

 
Found with her paw caught in a trap, Bella's paw with broken and skinned.

To make matters worse? She needed urgent surgery, but couldn't get it because she's from a rural area and the weather prevented any flights from leaving. She went two days without proper care.

Finally the weather cleared and Pacific Coastal Airlines generously rushed her without any cost to Comox to get the treatment she desperately needed.

The absolute agony that Bella felt can only be understood by someone who has had similar trauma. Yet, for those of us who have not, we can only imagine.

Despite this pain, Bella remained outgoing and endearing to everyone she meets. She needs your help to cover the surgery and to help her through followup care. You can be Bella's hero. You can free her from suffering.

Update!

Bella was one of our most heartbreaking stories of 2017. After being found with her paw caught in a trap, she was stranded on Bella Bella for two days without any medical care due to poor weather conditions, which prevented flights to Vancouver Island.

When she arrived in Comox, Bella had a fever and her paw smelled of infection and rot. It looked like she was going to lose her leg. However, the talented vet team and Bella's positive attitude helped her make a significant recovery within those first 24 hours in care - she lost some toes, but got to keep her leg!

After several weeks of love, care, and rest, it was like Bella hadn't been injured at all! Since making a full recovery, Bella is happy and healthy with her new forever family!
