Dog burn victim recovers at Wisconsin Humane Society Racine Campus

Racine, WI – The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) Racine Campus is caring for a stray dog who arrived at the shelter with terrible burns down her back. According to WHS officials, Annette is an incredibly sweet dog whose bright eyes and always-wiggly tail defy her painful past. The two-year-old dog was found by a Good Samaritan last month in Racine and brought to WHS.   

When she arrived, veterinary staff immediately provided medication to alleviate her pain, and she’s been on a treatment plan for several weeks. The cause of the burns is unknown, but due to the type of wound, veterinary staff suspect it was caused by a hot liquid. Despite the excruciating pain she endured, Annette remains a happy goofball who loves every person she meets. She prefers cuddling over toys and melts hearts every single day with her affectionate antics. 

Annette is making slow but steady progress, but still needs time to recover. The Wisconsin Humane Society is asking for donations to help support her medical treatment, as they don’t receive government funding and rely on the community to provide lifesaving care for dogs like Annette.
