LEXINGTON Ky. (LEX 18) – A Lexington animal rescue is trying to raise money to help a dog found shot in Albany make a full recovery.

Anita Spreitzer with the Woodstock Animal Foundation says a dog they’ve named Jade was found laying along a fence in Albany, Ky, shot and unable to move.

The property owner called a local rescue to pick up Jade, who was bleeding from an open wound, and she was taken to get vet care. The Woodstock Animal Foundation was later notified and Jade was brought to Lexington for treatment. It’s still unclear if she was shot more than once.

Spreitzer says they’re frustrated this type of thing happens all too often in Kentucky, and she wants the shooter to be found and prosecuted.

The foundation is also raising money for Jade’s recovery, for more information click here.

Caretakers say Jade is very shy and scared from what happened but is very sweet and loving. They’re hoping she can make a full recovery and will be adopted in the weeks or months to come.
