In 2012, the MHS Rescue Department came to the aid of more than 4,000 animals who were sick, injured or in immediate danger in Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park.

The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) is caring for an injured puppy who had fallen from a second story porch in Detroit.

The MHS Rescue Department received a call on Thursday, October 24 from the puppy’s owner, who surrendered her to MHS when the rescue team arrived, after explaining that the young dog had fallen and injured herself the night before.

It was clear that the 4-month-old German shepherd mix, now named Flutter, was having difficulties walking and putting weight on her front two legs.

She was brought to the MHS Detroit center for Animal Care to be examined and x-rayed by the veterinary staff who determined that her fall had fractured both of her front legs.

Flutter was fitted with casts on both legs and is recovering from her injuries in a foster home. Her recovery could take up to 6 weeks or longer.

Donations to the Michigan Humane Society support cruelty investigation and animal rescue.
