Michigan Humane Society
Performs Lifesaving Surgery for Puppy Who Swallowed a Coat Hanger
The puppy, named Indy, is now ready for her new home after weeks of care
(Detroit, MI) – February 22, 2016 - The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) is
hoping to find a loving home for a 6-month-old pit bull mix, now named Indy, who
needed specialized surgery after she swallowed a large portion of a coat hanger.
The MHS Rescue Department, which rescues animals in life-threatening situations
in Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park, received a call on Thursday, Jan. 14
from the puppy’s owner who wanted to surrender her to MHS because she was very
skinny and would not put on weight. The rescue driver saw that the puppy was
severely emaciated and needed immediate medical attention. The puppy was taken
to the MHS Detroit Center for Animal Care to be seen by a veterinarian.
