Sweet Holly has found her perfect family.
Holly was welcomed into the McKinley family where she has a furry brother Opie who was over-the-moon excited to have a friend. Holly will be trained as a therapy dog and will begin spreading her love to those who need it most.
It is amazing how resilient animals are… she started her rescue journey being shot by an arrow, obviously not having been shown kindness by humans. And now all she wants is to loved and be loved.
Look at Holly now !
Lab that was shot with razor tip arrow that entered her body 8 inches . She almost did not survive after two very difficult surgeries . 🐾
Recently Holly went to her foster home . Thank you Meghan Hall and family for stepping up to foster this sweet Angel . Holly even has a human 5 year old foster sister that she has become quite close to !
The first night in her foster home she was just exhausted and slept on the couch . Today , she was up for a little more exploring ! This girl really is our Christmas Miracle ! Holly will be rechecked soon and we will update at that point . 🐾
Update – Holly
Lab who was brutally shot with arrow with broad head tip (basically razors) ! The arrow entered her body approximately 8 inches . Holly had to endure 2 very serious surgeries. We almost lost her . A lobe of her lung had to be removed where the arrow sliced completely through it . We are still monitoring her closely for infection and she is still on pain management. Holly is such a gentle, petite girl . We love her so … ❤️
4 days post op and Holly as you can tell in the video is standing and walking ! This is so amazing ! I simply could not believe it when they brought her to me . She has made such progress ! She will continue to be closely monitored. Holly truly is a Holiday Miracle for us all ! ❤️
Lab shot with arrow with Broad Head Tip that entered her body approximately 7 inches . This arrow was in her for days before we were alerted and were asked to help her . We immediately said yes and had her transported to us for immediate medical care and pain control . 🐾
Surgery was performed yesterday to remove the arrow . A lobe of her lung was removed . The arrow had gone all the way through this lobe and the arrow was sticking out – yes the razor sharp points . Holly came through surgery and was in ICU . Sadly , Holly was not waking up post op and blood levels , blood pressure , and temperature were dropping . She was given a blood transfusion. She continued to decline and it was determined that she was bleeding internally. So Holly was rushed back in to surgery . This was so hard on her . She has a chest tube for now . She seems to be responding and more alert this morning. Holly is not out of the woods . The wound was a dirty wound , so infection is present . Holly also had two serious surgeries back to back . She is in on broad spectrum antibiotics and a Fentanyl patch for pain .
So please keep Holly in your thoughts . The next few days will be critical. This sweet girl deserves the best life has to offer … please Holly fight … we all love you so … ❤️

This poor girl is in route now to Blue Pearl in Louisville and will be under the care of The Arrow Fund .
She was shot in a rural county in eastern, Kentucky . This poor baby was witnessed like this on Saturday. We have no idea how long she has been suffering . I am waiting for our wonderful transporter Jessica Burke to arrive at Blue Pearl now . I just talked to her and she said there was a lot of blood .
Please keep this girl close to your heart . We are naming her Holly . 🐾
