Owner discovers pet locked inside property following February 23rd blaze
Angell Animal Medical Center’s Emergency/Critical Care veterinary team is caring for Lola, a longhaired Dachshund discovered by her owner nearly one month after a Hyde Park blaze. Weeks after the February 23 fire that had presumably taken Lola’s life, her owner heard scratching sounds from inside the condemned property yesterday, tore down the door, and was shocked to find the small canine inside.
“Lola was brought to Angell Animal Medical Center last night and is currently being cared for in our Emergency/Critical Care Unit,” said MSPCA-Angell spokesman Brian Adams. “The veterinary team is performing several tests today to uncover the extent of her injuries. Lola is receiving fluids and Angell’s Critical Care staff members are slowly reintroducing food. Lola remains surprisingly upbeat given her ordeal.”
