Cucumber was stuck below a bridge for over 6 days without food or water!
Found in Puerto Rico, this poor female named Cucumber was finally rescued after being stuck below a bridge for over 6 days without food or water! Not to mention there have been storms. This is UNACCEPTABLE!
Cucumber was found starving and completely dehydrated. Our partners, New York Bully Crew had her taken to the hospital to receive emergency medical treatment in PR. She needs to be stabilized before she will be traveling from Puerto Rico to New York.
Here is what we know. Cucumber is so extremely weak she cannot stand. Luckily she is eating but her frail, emaciated body is not strong enough to hold itself up. She is heartworm positive, had multiple ticks embedded in her and she is loaded with parasites! Despite the pain she was in her tail still wags at humans even though she's been let down by them.
For her to deteriorate this much it took much longer than the 6 days she was known to be down under the bridge! For a dog to be in this severe cachectic condition, it would takes weeks to look like Cucumber! Someone did this to her then mostly dumped her under the bridge after they were done with her.
New York Bully Crew have made a promise to save her life and we have joined them! They is a licensed Non Profit Organization and rely solely on donations to continue their life-saving work. They cannot do this without us.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with NYBC to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give Cucumber a second chance. With your help they can save her and give her a new life full of love and pain free.
UPDATE 7-25-17: Her doctor, Dr. G, treated Cucumber with some chiropractic therapy. This young girl did not deserve to be discarded, starved and left to die under a bridge! She has such a strong will to live. We promise she will never be alone again! The NYBC Crew in NY renamed her #MARVELLA meaning MIRACLE! She is eating and is still on IV THERAPY. She is heartworm positive, she had multiple ticks that were embedded and she was loaded with parasites! Her condition took longer than the 6 days she was known to be down under the bridge before she was rescued. For a dog to be in this severe cachectic condition, it would takes weeks to look like Cucumber!!
