Puppy found in Racine park with ears nearly severed finds her forever home

RACINE — The Wisconsin Humane Society is happy to announce a puppy who was found with her ears nearly severed as a result of having rubber bands tied around them has found her forever family!

The 6-month-old puppy named Molly was found near Sanders Park in Racine County back in December. She was brought to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s Racine Campus with severe injuries to her ears.

Staff at the Wisconsin Humane Society said both of Molly’s ears were tied off with small black rubber bands and only a small amount of tissue held Molly’s ears to her head. Staff members suspect it was the result of a botched attempt to crop her ears at home. She had surgery and recovered at the humane society.

On Thursday night, January 4th, Molly’s life was changed forever. She went home with new parents! The couple checked the humane society’s website “several times a day throughout her recovery” — the humane society said — and raced in as soon as they saw she was ready for adoption.

“It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago, Molly was roaming the streets alone with rubber bands nearly severing her ears, and now she’s healthy, happy and adored by her new family!” the humane society said in a Facebook post. 

The Wisconsin Humane Society is thanking those who donated toward Molly’s care. 

“Her entire life has been turned around, thanks to you!” the humane society said.
