An entire family of abused dogs needs your help.
Imagine feeling like bugs are literally crawling just under the surface of your skin where you cannot reach them to make it stop no matter how hard you scratch or rip through your skin. Imagine your body is covered in sores and blood with NO RELIEF IN SIGHT!
This family was found covered in sarcoptic mange, a highly contagious skin disease caused by scabies mites. These dogs have gone so long without treatment you can literally see the mites burrowing into their skin. Their bodies have large bleeding oozing sores from the intense scratching and biting to get the itching to STOP! This poor mother dog had her babies 8 weeks ago and from the moment they came into this world life has only been torturous for them. But, with your help, this all changes today.
She has done her best to care for her pups while being tortured herself with the pain of her own infestation. This family needs our help! They were alone crying in a shelter needing rescue! There are 7 puppies and the mom that are not only suffering with sarcoptic mange but have a variety of other life threatening issues if left untreated. Everyone will want to save the puppies but rescuers refuse to leave mom behind because she simply won't make it out alive.
UPDATE 4-5-17: We have an important message from their SCR NY, “We posted yesterday we lost Corona, one of the pups who had been diagnosed with Parvo… now, each day that goes by we are seeing worsening symptoms in his siblings and now Tito and Mai Tai have full blown pneumonia. We don't want to lose these babies and are doing everything possible to keep them with us.The bills are increasing and at this point as the pups are more sick than we originally suspected. We are in great need of support to keep this going and help this family survive!
Second Chance Rescue NYC has taken all 8 dogs and rushed them to their emergency vet. Now they need your help. We have created this special page to raise the funds needed to save them all. Everything you see here on this page triggers a life saving donation. I know we can save them!
