Fawn – Starving Dog Found In Frankfort- Making Slow Progress
The Herkimer County Humane Society (HCHS) has issued an update on Fawn's health.
Joann Johnson, Assistant Manager at the Herkimer County Humaine Society says Fawn is holding her own. She's still not out of the woods, but they have increased her feeding schedule, she's eating more food at one time. She is very weak and can't walk on her own, but all and all she's in good spirits at her foster home.
Thank you everyone who have reached out with your thoughts, prayers, and donations. Fawn and the staff greatly appreciate all you have done! 💞❤️[HCHS]
We asked Joann if she was gaining any weight and she said Fawn currently looks the same as her photos.
When a dog is this emaciated, it takes time for them to put on any sort of notable weight. It takes all her energy to just digest food so it's a very slow process. Her body functions are doing ok and she's in good spirits like she knows we're here to help her.
No one has been charged in Fawn's case. Frankfort Police are currently following leads looking for Fawns owner. If anyone has information regarding Fawn, please contact the Village of Frankfort PD at (315) 895-7566.
Fawn was brought to the HCHS on Friday, January 18, 2019, after wandering into a man's back yard in Frankfort on Litchfield St. He then brought her to HCHS. They are doing everything possible to save her life.
