Hippobottabean owner's failed him.
This tiny puppy is only eight weeks old. He was kept outdoors, in this freezing, rainy weather. His humans relinquished him and gave him up to die. He did not receive any vaccinations and they noticed he was sick “about a week ago.” In reality he has been ill for much longer than this. His body is riddled with sickness and infection. His skin is raging red and raw.
Our partners at Ghetto Rescue took one look at this baby and knew they had to step in to save his tiny life. Now we need your help! The puppy now named Hippobottabean was brought into Emergency Care. Pet Care Veterinary Center examined him and are treating him for a horrible Upper Respiratory Infection just to start. His little face is swollen and scabby. His eyes look dreadful.
It would be easy for us to get mad. It is also easy for folks to post negative comments from afar, but instead we ask that you somehow be part of this group effort. The case will be under investigation but we are solely focused on raising the funds for Ghetto Rescue to save his life.
UPDATE 3-18-18: Hippo was transferred from the Urgent Care to a medical foster home. Once in the home rescuers realized Hippobottabean was probably taken from her mom way too soon! She tries to nurse her foster sister dog Gooby. She remains in a diaper until she is healthy enough to begin training. She continues to receive medicated baths. This baby is still not out of the woods.
Hippobottabean’s emergency care will cost in the thousands and that is just not the type of funds Ghetto Rescue has. So we have stepped in to help in our own way. Introducing our animals saving products below.
