Caim was found unable to move by the Mississippi River.

In early February, some kind people found this emaciated pit bull by the river and brought her to Villalobos Rescue Center. She was strong enough to get to the Cypress Lake Animal Hospital where she got a blood transfusion. Dugout, another one of the rescue dogs, generously gave some of his “vampire” blood to Caim (ky-eem) and put her on her first step to recovery.

She’s not out of the woods yet, but with a strong pit bull effort, she will be!
