MARBLE – A1032992
SAFE 04/20/15 Marble has got a lot going on. Poor girl was brought in not looking so good. She was found with as a stray with an injury on her right eye and a fracture in her left femur. She was a little cautious when first handled by our medical staff which is understood seeing in how much pain she must be in. Marble does however allow touch and to be handled for her exam. She just needs some help quickly and to go to a hospital where she can get a full work up quickly. Please help this girl out she really needs you at MACC.
