Athena is getting a blood transfusion to save her life.
She is getting a blood transfusion as we speak to save her life! Please get an Athena shirt, hoodie or tote here to donate to her Emergency medical care! The level of abuse and neglect Athena has endured saddens us to a new level. It's utterly disgusting how she had to go through this. Imagine scabs from laying on your rib cage. Imagine sitting on your butt with just your skin between you and your tailbone. Imagine the despair she felt.
She has large sores on her back side which means she was contained to a very small area, not allowed to walk or use the bathroom safely away from her body. It's sad and disgusting that we have seen this before, but we can't turn our backs on Athena. We are here now to help save her life.
She is infested with worms and her heart has deadly heartworms which also means she was kept outside. The worms and her lack of nourishment has deteriorated to the point where if she didn't receive a blood transfusion, she was going to die.
Now we are asking for your help. We have created this special page to help raise funds needed to save Athena and support Dallas Dog RRR. With every tee, hoodie, bracelet, or accessory purchased, you can help save this victim of abuse! Get your Athena product today and give this baby the second chance at life she deserves.
Dallas DogRRR is a group of dedicated, animal-loving volunteers who support the abandoned dogs of Dallas, Texas, by collecting supplies, paying vet bills, locating foster families, facilitating adoptions, and advocating for a more hopeful future. We are often seen even in the trenches of SE Dallas searching for and rescuing forgotten dogs. We have no administrative fees; no one is on payroll. Every single cent that is donated goes directly to paying for vet bills and food/supplies for our rescued dogs, as well as for boarding (for those that don’t have fosters). We are simply a group of volunteers motivated by the inspiring rescue stories that we get to be a part of every day!
