Finley: Found thrown away in a TRASHCAN & bitten by rats!
We have unfortunately just learned some very disturbing and heartbreaking news that this innocent 2-pound puppy was actually found by police in a garbage can! How despicable is that? Discarded suffering and in pain like rubbish! Sickening! I am crying as I type this story.
Finley remains at RDR's 24/7 ER vet on IV awaiting the results on a ruptured abscess. They no longer feel he has puppy strangles as the abscesses are all over his body, as you can see in the new pics and not just his neck area.
Rescuers got a plea yesterday from the NYC ACC saying that this tiny 2 pound angel had open abscesses on his lymph nodes and all around his neck and needed immediate medical care. We are so upset for this tiny angel. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers and help towards his lifesaving care!!!
Finley arrived at the ER vet late last night and was immediately put on IV fluids & antibiotics. His blood was drawn for testing & a culture will also be taken & tested from one of his many abscessed sores.
Poor little Finley, suffering alone, so tiny and frightened. We are happy he's out of the shelter and out of that trashcan he was found in! We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create this week's animal saving t-shirt design! Please, if you can, purchase one of our Finley + RDR items below! With your help this baby can get the second chance at life he deserves!
[UPDATE] We are still waiting on 2 culture results from the lab from these abscesses. He remains on IV and is bright and alert. It breaks our hearts seeing this tiny 2 pound baby covered in painful sores.
Today the medical team said they believe these abscesses may be caused by rat bites! How disgusting and terrifying for this tiny angel. Thank god he was saved from the garbage can before he died there, suffering alone!
