gloria dog shot

MISSION, KS (KCTV) -- Gloria is a 2-year-old pit bull who was found near Slater, Missouri, after someone shot her in the face.

It’s an upsetting story that will anger any animal lover.

However, after Unleashed Pet Rescue picked her up earlier this week, they knew they had to help.

Veterinarians said she was shot several days ago, but the reason why is unknown.

Her X-ray shows a number of pellets in her face.

Two specialists are working on her over the weekend, and it will take weeks for her to recover from the surgery.

“They weren’t sure if she was going to make it,” said Danielle Reno, the owner of Unleashed Pet Rescue. “They weren’t sure if they could repair the hole in her face. She was stable -- as in she was eating, drinking, and in good spirits -- but they were worried the infection could get septic.”

Gloria was dropped off on Friday night.

Between now and her surgery on Tuesday, it will cost Unleashed about $3,000 to take care of her.

They said any donations are appreciated. Click here to visit the donation page on their website.
