JANUARY 11, 2013- Veterinary technician Lynette Rater has been working with animals for most of her life... and on a daily basis she treats animals at their best... and worst......
But on Wednesday of this week a pregnant Pit Bull by the
name of diamond was brought into the
"We tried to manually help her expel the puppy... and not going
to happen... So forced to make a decision... To have c section done which owner
could not afford," says Lynette Rater,
Rater tells us this time she couldn't turn her back, and she knew something had to be done...
"People were heartbroken... And I'm a sucker for babies... I couldn't do it.... I had to do what I could to help," says Rater.
Mary Grace Lacoste, a receptionist at the pet hospital says normally workers have to let the dogs go... but this time was different.
"Was a case... She couldn't let go... Unfortunately we see a
lot of things like this and we have to let things be," says
Rater took responsibility footing part of the bill and delivered 8 of the 10 puppies... Two puppies passed away in the process..
"She would have eventually died... I mean she had 9 other puppies behind this one," says Rater.
"Spay and neuter your pets! Too many in shelters that need homes just important," says Rater.
The pet hospital normally doesn't foot the bill to save animals but this was a special occurrence.
Funds are needed to pay for the initial procedure, food, vaccinations and overall care of Diamond and her puppies.
