Francine, the elusive stray that surrendered to MCSO Animal Services for cheese and sausage, is now battling pneumonia and needs your help.

A few weeks ago, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office brought you the story of Francine, a sweet pit bull mix who managed to make a life in the woods off of Kanner Highway.

For many weeks, Francine managed to elude capture, until MCSO Animal Services officers were able to catch her using sausage and cheese. She was taken to the Humane Society in hopes of finding a loving home.Over the past few weeks however, Francine has developed a severe respiratory infection, to the point she is now suffering from severe pneumonia.
Friends at All Creatures Animal Hospital have been treating Francine with IV fluids and medication and say she is now improving.
With continued treatment, she will hopefully make a full recovery. Once she gains strength and can breathe a little easier, she will be taken to Nala’s New Life Rescue in Martin County in hopes of finding that loving home she deserves.
For now, Francine’s medical bills are mounting, and are expected to go even higher with the daily treatment she needs to beat the pneumonia. Nala’s New Life Rescue is hoping to raise the $1000.00 needed to cover the medical costs to help save her.
If you can help, please call All Creatures Animal Hospital at 772-283-0101. Or, you can visit www.NalasRescue.org where there is information on how you can help.Anything you can donate to help get Francine back on her paws would be greatly appreciated.
