Nugget was starved and left for months in a cage.

Nugget was starved and left for months in a cage.

This poor girl was starved and left in a small kennel or cage for months. Nugget came from the NYC shelter. Rescue Dogs Rock staff were asked by the shelter to help Nugget after she was brought in as a stray in horrific condition. Here is what we know. Nugget was intentionally starved to near death and weighs only 24lb. ! She should be 3 times her present weight. She has a body score of 1 out of 9. This is clinically the worst emaciation. Nugget is weak and lifeless, dehydrated and falling over from malnutrition. She can barely walk.

She has sores all over her body including compression sores from being confined in a crate or small area. Her nails are curling under. This is complete and utter ABUSE. The worst part is because she was picked up by animal control as a stray her abuser will most likely never be found. This doesn't mean the authorities are not trying their hardest. The reality is without a witness no charges can be filed.

We immediately said YES to Nugget and Rescue Dogs Rock had her transported to their NY Emergency Vet for life saving medical care. She will have a long road to a full recovery. The positives are, she is eating, drinking and is sweet and a gentle soul. She has seen the worst of humans and abuse and will need to heal both physically and mentally.

We are committed to changing Nuggets life for the better. Please help Nugget by purchasing one of her shirts, hoodies, tote or bracelet that donates to her medical care! These make great gifts and each and everything helps save tiny Nugget. Help us give Nugget the second chance at life she deserves.


UPDATE 12-31-16 : Gorgeous sweet Nugget, rescued from the NYC ACC severely emaciated is finally ready to leave the Emergency Vets and go to a medical foster home! Yay! Look how sweet this baby girl is! Because of her medical issues she will need several small meals a day, but she so deserves to finish recovering in a home! Please consider closing out your year helping an amazing abused dog go home! You will not regret it!


UPDATE 1-25-17 : We have incredible news! This young lady is looking for her forever home. She's a little nugget of love… great with other dogs and people. She's only 1 1/2 and was saved from NYACC. She was far under weight and malnourished. One of RDR’s foster homes scooped her up and nursed her back to health. Now she's ready for her forever home to find her.
