southern CA: Urgent. $570 and rescue organization/foster requested ASAP for Pit gal abandoned to streets, and now shot by police with rubber bullets

Izzy on left and Luna on right. Izzy needs a home ASAP or at least a foster til
 she can find a loving home. $570 donations would also be greatly appreciated.

Izzy the Pit gal has needed rescue per Instagram and Facebook posts from at least 9/27. Her owners were moving and they just dumped her in an alley in the vicinity of Carson. She has been staying in that alley with a homeless man but he knows he is not equipped to take care of her.

I was surprised to see she is still in need, and shocked to see the police shot her multiple times (with rubber bullets) last night when the man was on drugs and the police approached him. She is ok but bruised and in pain. The bill last night was around $830 but thru kind donations the balance of $570 was put on the student Alexa's credit card. This is her first time rescuing, and as a student has low budget. Please help with the financial, and the main focus Alexa states in a thread for Izzy: "To find Izzy a forever home or a long term foster/ rescue until a home can be found..." The emphasis is not on the unfortunate police contact which resulted in her injuries. At least they were not real bullets.
Please donate, rescue, foster, adopt or share if you can. Alexa Navarrete's PayPal is Metco4@aol.com. She has pleaded with all of Facebook to help find Izzy a good home, and now this. She even has her mother networking for a home for Izzy. Please note the opinion from a trainer who temperament tested Izzy around the turn of the month before this shooting happened:
Izzy passed her temperament test with professional dog trainer Chris Nguyen. She is NOT people aggressive, food aggressive, or dog aggressive. We don't know how she does with younger kids though. In Leu of this new information we hope that those that have been interested in adopting or fostering Izzy will now re consider doing so since we know for a fact now that she is dog friendly. If anyone is serious about adopting or fostering Izzy Chris Nguyen will come out and do another assesment with you, your dogs and Izzy for just $100 to make sure it will be a good fit. I hope more doors will be opened for Izzy now that we now she's is dog friendly. Video is posted below.

SHOT BY LAPD MULTIPLE TIMES 10-6-2016. UPDATE ON IZZY THE DOG ABANDONED IN AN ALLEY when her family moved. Her family left her w a homeless man, drug addict in a an alley in the city of Carson in Los Angeles County, CA. The man was wandering undressed in public and when police approached him, Izzy barked so the police shot her multiple times with rubber bullets. She was taken to the vet by the young lady who is a first time rescuer. Alexa is the young rescuer trying to help Izzy. Alexa is in the top right photo with Izzy and the 2 photos on the left are Izzy at the vet waiting to be seen for her bullet bruising which does not show but as bumps on her fur. Izzy needs a real rescue organization to step up and get her off the streets. She is presently at the vet for now. Her bill last night was $570.00 and help is needed as Alexa put it on her credit card and she is a college student struggling to get by. Her PayPal is Metco4@aol.com Still seeking a foster family or adopter for Izzy. Please network for medical, pledges, foster home and rescue. Updates to follow later tonight. Thank you.
