BARCS officials say a resident in the Winchester neighborhood spotted Pickles and called Animal Control, who rushed Pickles to the vet. She is recovering in BARCS’ Medical Wing, where she will need daily medication, wound checks, and bandage changing.

Officials suspect the wound, which was a laceration along the bottom of her neck, was the result of a deeply embedded dog collar.
