Ava: Can't tell her age because her body is so destroyed!
Meet Ava! She is such a special little girl that she brought two rescues together for one amazing purpose...to save her precious life. Adore and Scout's Honor have teamed up to make sure this little one receives the best of everything!
Ava is 7-9 months old, hard to tell with her current condition. We think a lab mix. She currently is being treated for demodex mange, secondary skin infections, malnourishment, anemia, and ear infections. Until pulled this baby had never known a kind hand. She would scream just as you reached for her. Every inch of her hurt, but she was terrified the human would add to the pain.
24 hours after being pulled, her tail is beginning to wag, she climbed into her visitor's lap and enjoyed soft pets, careful to not hurt her numerous scabs and open wounds.
[UPDATE] Ava remains in critical condition. She is still being treated for one of the worse cases on demodex mange rescuers and vet staff have ever seen. She is starting to open up and trust humans again. We will keep updating on her condition. We desperately need your help.
We have partnered with Scout's Honor Rescue to create this week's animal saving t-shirt design! Please, if you can, purchase one of our Ava + S.H.R. items below! With your help this neglected girl will get the second chance at life she deserves!
Scout's Honor Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all-breed/mixed breed dog and cat rescue organization that focuses on rescuing and placing homeless dogs and cats in Houston, Texas and surrounding areas. We are one of the very few rescues that will take in the sick, the injured, the old, the ugly (although we don't think so!) and those that are the most unloved on a regular basis. Scout's Honor was formed in May 2006, and is often the last resort for the homeless and needy animals left abandoned to die in pounds or on the mean streets.
