Mattie: Found lifeless on the side of the road with a degloved leg!
Just when you think "rescue" could not getting any worse, once again we are brought to our knees in total and utter shock and disgust.
Poor Mattie has been in this condition with a de-gloved front leg for weeks. Mattie is an Aussie mix and not even a year old. How she is not dead right now is a miracle.
How do we know this? Because the skin and bone of the leg is rotted, decayed and black. Mattie was lying on the side of the road unable to move and pretty much had given up her will to live, when she was spotted by a Good Samaritan who immediately called animal control.
Rescue Dogs Rock was called immediately as the shelter does not have the funds or capacity to treat Mattie. Her only choice if RDR did not step up to save her was to put her out of her misery and pain and euthanize her.
Mattie deserves to live. Mattie deserves a second chance. Rescue Dogs Rock will give Mattie her Chance. Mattie is at a Vet Hospital right now on very heavy pain meds and an IV. Ontop of everything else this baby is battling she is full of worms and has Lyme disease.
First and foremost is to treat her mangled leg which will need immediate amputation ... We are hoping that will happen in the next day ... We are here solely for this purpose.
We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create this week's animal saving t-shirt design! Please, if you can, purchase one of our Mattie + RDR items below! With your help this victim of abuse can get the second chance at life she deserves!
