DULUTH, MN-- Despite hope for her recovery, Fiona, the day old pup rescued Thursday, has died.
Animal Allies Humane Society shared the news on Facebook this evening.
In a post, the organization said, "It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news that Fiona has passed away. When she came in we knew that this was a possibility, but she was so responsive that we chose to fight alongside her and share what could have been an amazing story with you. Despite our best efforts little Fiona's injuries got the best of her. "
An animal control officer found the day old dog on Thursday. Her eyes hadn't even opened yet.
She had cuts on her body, which they thought came from being picked up by a bird and dropped.
Animal Allies thanked everyone who offered their support for Fiona the Fighter.
The post said, "Thank you to those who have donated in the last few hours- these funds will not be wasted and will be used to help future neonatal infants like Fiona."
