Ireland was going to be euthanized by the shelter by 6:00pm
This is happening now. Our partners at Dallas Dog RRR was given a deadline of 6:00pm to pull this pup or she would be euthanized by the shelter. She appeared to have something embedded in her neck and her fever was almost 104! She needed medical treatment NOW. There were no doctors on staff, so no treatment could be given at the shelter. It was literally... Do or Die, and volunteers DID rescue her!
Dallas DogRRR knew no one else would step in to save her. The medical bills would be in the tens of thousands but they did not care. Their volunteers rushed to the scene and transported this girl to the Emergency Vet. Their doctors were horrified by what they saw. Rescuers have named her Ireland.
Doctors immediately rushed Ireland into the back and she was in very critical condition. She was administer pain medications, IV and emergency care. She had some original wounds that could not be determined at this time. Someone took the time to bandage it but that is where the problem started. It was bandaged so tightly it embedded into her neck. The bandage embedded up under the skin almost decapitating her. Doctors had to sedate Ireland just to removed the embedded fabric around her neck.
She remains in critical condition with a 104 temperature. She must be stabilized then she will need 1 - 2 surgeries to repair the damage. Now we are working with the rescuers to raise the funds needed to save Ireland’s life!
To help save Ireland please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. We have partnered with Dallas Dog RRR to create these animal saving products to raise the funds needed to save her.
Dallas DogRRR is a group of dedicated, animal-loving volunteers who support the abandoned dogs of Dallas, Texas, by collecting supplies, paying vet bills, locating foster families, facilitating adoptions, and advocating for a more hopeful future. We are often seen even in the trenches of SE Dallas searching for and rescuing forgotten dogs. We have no administrative fees; no one is on payroll. Every single cent that is donated goes directly to paying for vet bills and food/supplies for our rescued dogs, as well as for boarding (for those that don’t have fosters). We are simply a group of volunteers motivated by the inspiring rescue stories that we get to be a part of every day!
