Azrael was left dying on the streets on Peru.
We have created this tee shirt campaign to help raise the funds needed to save an abandoned cat in the streets of Peru.
Our partners at New York Bully Crew has taken on an abuse case that we are helping. Meet Azrael. This is an unusual rescue. NYBC has a colleague in Peru, Karina, asked if they could help this severe case of abuse. They sent photos to NYBC and after seeing the condition of Azrael they could not turn their backs on him.
Azrael was found dying on the side of the road in a poor town in Peru with no electricity or even water. His neck is engulfed in rotting flesh. I know this is graphic but this is the reality this cat is facing. He was dying a slow and painful death, just thrown to the side to suffer.
Thanks to the quick action of rescuers Azrael was transported to an emergency vet clinic capable of caring for him. He is having emergency surgery right now to ty to save him and rid the body of the necrotic tissue. Please pray for Azrael.
UPDATE 9-10-18: Azrael is making progress. He gained 1 pound which is a step in the right direction! Although the surgical site looks gruesome, he is healing and his appetite continues to stay stable. Aggressive skin removal surgery was needed to rid Azrael of necrotic tissue engulfing his neck. The images are tough to look at but he did survive surgery and is recovering nicely.
Now we are asking for your help in raising the donations Azrael will need. His care will be in the thousands. New York Bully Crew does not have this type of funding. We are here to help with one simple shirt!
UPDATE 9-19-18: Azrael loves to eat and is feeling better each day. He has had another round of medication and surgery. The fact that he is eating so well is a huge progress! His surgery removed huge portions of skin around his neck. The photos are a little too graphic to share but know that he is doing incredible!
To help with Azrael’s surgery costs please consider purchasing one of his shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. With every purchase you can help New York Bully Crew save his life!
