Alohi was suffering in the Bahamas.
This is a heartbreaking story. Just take one look and you can see this poor baby has lived a horrible life. Our partners at Second Chance Rescue NYC received a plea for help from a rescue located in the Bahamas.
I know these images are very graphic and hard to even look at but this is the reality we are facing. Meet little Alohi. She is in horrific condition. She was kept chained up, in a filthy dog house, at a car repair shop.
This story gets worse. She was bitten by another dog months ago, and she was never given any medical care for the gruesome wounds. Rather she lived in her own waste and filth, in the blistering heat, infested with flies and ticks. To make things even worse, Alohi is pregnant. Her unborn puppies are now in danger as well!
Second Chance Rescue NYC have teamed up with the Voiceless Dogs of Nassau, located in the Bahamas, to help Alohi and her unborn puppies. Funds are desperately needed to get her to a vet for treatment. Rescuers are worried about infection and her becoming septic. What will happen to her unborn babies if that occurs.
UPDATE 8-9-17: We posted Alohi, a few days ago after she was rescued from a filthy dog house, chained up, on the grounds of a car repair shop in the Bahamas. She has a huge infected wound, which was left untreated and festered with infection. The wound hardened and turned into a huge open tumor on the top of her head. It was filled with larva, puss, and dead tissue. Alohi was rescued just in the nick of time, she gave birth yesterday to 8 tiny newborn babies. Sadly one of the babies passed away shortly after birth, but Alohi and her 7 remaining puppies are all doing very well.
Today Momma Alohi is undergoing surgery to remove the dead tissue and the tumor that has formed due to the badly infected wound in the top of her head. We would like to thank everyone who donated for her medical care. We would not have been able to get her the care she needed without your support. Please keep Alohi in your thoughts and prayers today as she is right at this very moment having her surgery. The babies are anxiously awaiting to have their momma back safely to take care of them.
We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue NYC to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give Alohi a second chance. Purchase a shirt today and save this innocent victim! With your help they can give Alohi a new life full of love and pain free!
