Milena pulled or had pulled for her 3 dogs:
Josie, Sophie/Brynn and Marcie from San Bernardino shelter in California..
On this post of Brynn/Sophie, her having kennel cough or a cold was not mentioned.
|This post was from July 12th|
Brynn/Sophie and her 7 1 day old pups were pulled for a lady named Alese in Massachusetts. Alese wanted Brynn/Sophie sent to Massachusetts as pregnant as she was. Milena was in agreement but the pups were born. So plans changed
Brynn/Sophie must of had her pups on July 12th as they were with her when she was pulled on the 13th.
They had decided to send Byrnn/Sophie with newborn pups to Aprils for only 4 hours on July 13th after she was pulled. On July 13th a temporary foster was found for a week but something went awry and she had to stay at Aprils.
April was only supposed to keep Brynn/Sophie for 4 hours til she went to foster
Milena saying babies are home.
Is cardboard the best they could do for this girl and her babies?
April was to be a temporary foster. She already fostering Josie who was sick.
|Josie at vet was diagnosed with pneumonia|
April was a inexperienced foster for dogs with kennel cough/pneumonia.
It was said that Brynn/Sophie had a cold but was going out and eating. She was not as sick as Josie.
April lives in 3 rooms/800 sg ft home. There is no way that germs were not spread. Even if Brynn/Sophie didn't pick up germs she got sicker. There was no mention of sickness on her thread until July 18th. 5 days after she was pulled.
Too weak to clean her babies. Did this happen overnight?
She would not eat, was incontinent, breathing very labored.
On the 17th Brynn hadn't eaten in 24 hours and was incontinent The 18th Milena says there is no money for vet
2 days later she wasn't eating still and was becoming deathly sick she was taken back to the vet. She was given several shots of antibiotics and maybe a vit. B shot and sent back home. She was not treated properly. She did not get the same vet care as Josie did. Josie was given a full work up, including xrays, blood work on her second visit. Brynn/Sophie should of received the same care as Josie. It was stated on thread that Brynn/Sophie did receive the same care.
Brynn/Sophie and Josie went to the same vet. They received the same treatment
Brynn/Sophie did not have xrays or blood work done. Considering it was stated that Brynn/Sophie was sick/pregnant when she left the shelter, was sicker than on first visit, xrays and blood work should of been done as they were with Josie She was a mother. Her pups needed her!

Milena was the backing/pulling rescue.
|Milena pulled Brynn/Sophie and was responsible for all vet care|
|Milena can not be this stupid. She has been rescuing dogs for how many years? Hmmmmm.......|
Instead of taking Brynn/Sophie to the vet certain people decided to play veterinarians. A shopping list was made:
List of over the counter stuff needed
Were any of these women professionally trained for this kind of care? Milena's transporter Linda Stone was sent to April's to give Subc fluids to Sophie. They tried steak, tuna and chicken to tempt her, but she would not eat. She was given home remedies which included pedialyte and Robitussin DM. No one consulted with the vet.
Brynn/Sophie hasn't eaten in almost 48 hours. The rescue okays the fact that she is given human medications
|Robitussin is not to be used in treating pneumonia|
A registered nurse asks who the idiot was that gave the dog Robitussin
A person playing veterinarian made a judgement call that was wrong:
|Linda states that Sophie did not need to go to the vet that night. She died approximately 6 hours later|
Brynn/Sophie was not stable. She couldn't even stand up. Milena says there were no funds to take her to the vet. Someone had to tell Milena to get Brynn/Sophie to the vet, to raise funds and that Brynn/Sophie should of gone a long time ago as pneumonia could not be treated at home.
No funds for vet. Pneumonia can not be treated at home. Sophie could not stand up.
Amy had to tell Milena to take her to the vet. What kind of rescuing is this?
Milena was in charge and should have done it without people telling her to get Brynn/Sophie to the vet. She has been doing this long enough to know the difference. Milena was the backing/pulling rescue and was responsible for this dog, no matter the circumstances as stated here for another dog:
|Was there an application filled out for Brynn/Sophie? Will there be one after this posting? Will it be back dated?|
By playing veterinarian it is my belief that these women all contributed to Brynn/Sophies death. They were not qualified/trained to diagnose/treat Brynn/Sophie. This poor mother of 7 died an agonizing, slow death at the hands of so called animal rescuers.
Chars comment on the thread was spot on:
Alese stated that she would foot the bill yet was constantly asking for people to honor their pledges. While I believe that people should not offer money if they are not willing to pay up, the point is that rescuers should not count on pledges made. Life happens. Sometimes animals are sicker than they appear to be. Whether pledges are paid or not is besides the point. Rescuers should be prepared to pay out more than anticipated. Vetting is a never ending expense.
|Alese stated that she made $60. an hour and that she would foot the bill.|
One of Brynn/Sophies pups had died at the time of this posting
|WRONG!!! Milena IS and has a rescue|
Milena was the backing rescue for these dogs and is ultimately responsible for ALL their vetting/care and final outcome. She is a 501and IS a rescue which fosters/places and adopts out animals.
|Milena pulled Brynn/Sophie|
|Milena saying Josie escaped death but Marcie is critical|
|Posted July 13th, Marcie is Canadian|
It doesn't matter how many dogs this rescuer has " saved ", passed off to others, adopted out. Brynn/Sophie moms deserved so much more than she received. Her pups deserved to have their mom feed and care for them. Someone decided to withhold money and others played veterinarian and it helped to cost Brynn/Sophie her life. So we have 1 out of 3 grown females that died because of incompetence. Does her life mean anything? Who is to be held accountable for the lack of vetting/care that this dog was entitled? Her pups will never know her life because of human asininity. There were 4 puppies lost. Do their lives mean anything?
Has anyone yet to see an apology? How about someone owning the mistakes that were made?
After all the suffering that Brynn/Sophie went through, in her final hours she was allowed to go to the emergency vet. Why Milena did not offer to pay it before is the question of the day. How this poor momma of seven must of suffered. To think that rescuers, people committed to ensure the safety and well being of animals could put a beautiful soul through all of this is truly sickening. This was not a mistake. This was someone in my opinion, that wanted to hold onto their money.
A responsible statement:
It makes me wonder who will pull for her? Who will be held responsible if something were to happen?
Are you willing to put your name/your rescues name at risk? How many more Brynn/Sophies are there to be before people wake up?
I agree with what Lisa says below in the following comment:
