Local animal shelter helping abused dog found with broken leg

By Natalie Rivers, KTVK

The Arizona Animal Welfare League and Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is asking the public to help with an abused puppy.

A volunteer for AAWL & SPCA rescued the lab/pit bull-mix puppy named Henrietta who has a broken leg and brought her to the shelter.

The puppy has a badly broken front leg that was out of its socket and in so much pain the veterinary staff had to sedate her.

Abuse is suspected as the cause of the puppy's broken leg.

AAWL and SPCA is taking the puppy to a specialist who will perform surgery in hopes of saving her leg.

Anyone wishing to help the nonprofit organization with medical expenses for the puppy can visit www.aawl.org or call 602-273-6852.

The organization are also urging anyone who recognized the signs of animal cruelty to contact a law enforcement.
