Alexa was dumped at a shelter in a trash bag!
This is what abuse and neglect looks like. We are in awe at the level of torment this poor baby has been through. Meet Alexa. She came into a high kill shelter and was surrendered in a black garbage bag. Yes... that is Correct... Exactly what you see in these photos is exactly how she was surrendered. Please help us help her!
After she was dumped at the shelter in a trash bag, Alexa was being carried to the back to be placed in a kennel to await to be killed. Sick dogs at this shelter are immediately euthanized. They have no chance normally.
Alexa was bleeding at the touch from her raw skin. Rescue Dogs Rock saw her as they were preparing to leave the shelter. The shelter agreed to surrender her to them instead. Now they need our help to save baby Alexa.
Alexa bled from laying down on blankets, laying on concrete and was in excruciating pain. When she was picked up, everything she touched was covered in blood. Her skin is so bad vets say her skin is like a burn victim. She is just an innocent puppy. Volunteers immediately placed her in the car and drove off to transport her to their Emergency Vet partner for life saving care. She will need emergency care to stabilize her and long term care but we cannot do it without you.
UPDATE 5-19-17: Alexa is doing much better then a few days ago when she was bleeding due to skin infection and no hair and brought to a kill shelter. She is still at RDR's Texas emergency vet partner receiving medical treatment but she's well on her way to a full recovery.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create the animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save Alexa. What happened to her is unbelievable but with your help we can save her. Purchase your animal saving tee today and help us save this innocent victim of abuse and neglect. I know we can do this!
