Gideon was left tied to a pull slowly dying in front of his owners.
Imagine being tied to a pole and left living in the dirt. He was deteriorating right in front of his owners eyes, who did nothing to help him. He is emaciated with every rib showing and hairless from years of being covered in mange and a skin infection.
Our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock were alerted to Gideon’s plight a few days ago and they have worked tirelessly to rescue him from this nightmare in South Texas. Gideon has been picked up by volunteers and transported straight to their ER Vet for immediate and life saving medical care! They need your help!
He is skin and bones, hairless from neglect, covered in mange and a raging skin infection. He was tied to a pole with a rope around his neck so he could not move.
His eyes tell a different story, they are sad eyes, eyes that have been subjected to cruelty, abuse and severe neglect. Sadly he has never known love. We know that Gideon deserves so much more than what he’s been dealt so far in life and we know with your help we can give him back the life he was always meant to have!
UPDATE: Here is a photo of Gideon at the vet receiving much needed medical care. Sadly besides being emaciated and hairless with a severe skin infection he also has severe hip dysphasia that will require surgery to repair. His vet states, he’s been repeatedly hit, hit by a cars on several occasions, he’s hobbling now and on heavy doses of pain meds. He CANNOT have surgery until he’s much stronger and stable. Surgery now could kill him. His medical status and cost just got very complicated and expensive.
He will need weeks and weeks of vet care to get him healthy. We have partnered with RDR to help raise the funds they need to save Gideon.
To help Slate please consider purchasing one of his shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. We have partnered with TAF to create these animal saving products to raise the funds needed care for Slate.
