Jezebel has maggots living in her matted fur.
This is 3 year old Jezebel from the NYC Animal Control. Yes, her condition is shocking and this is after being shaved down at the shelter with all the matts and MAGGOTS being removed. Can you imagine what her life was like wherever she came from?! The filth, the pain, the loneliness, the misery and the sadness?!
We cannot imagine how this young 13lb dog came to be in such horrific condition. Rescue Dogs Rock received her photos and rushed to the shelter. They picked her up late yesterday and she cannot even stand or walk! Look at her leg, her paws. Filthy, she's covered in open sores! This is truly so heartbreaking.
We feel such sadness for Jezebel and such anger at the person responsible. Sometimes it feels like the abuse and the neglect is getting worse. Sometimes it feels that we are losing the battle, but we can't stop. We won't stop, because Jezebel needs us right now. She arrived at RDR’s NYC vet late yesterday, so that's all rescuers know for now, but she is SAFE and forever out of harms way! Rescuers hope they are in time and that they can make her whole again!
UPDATE 7-31-17: She is very weak and in very rough shape. It is evident she's had a life of misery. Her legs are all cut up from the maggot infestation and her skin is very infected. Multiple diagnostic tests have been conducted and Rescue Dogs Rock are waiting on the results. Jezebel needs all the love and support you can send her way. If you could help with her medical care we would greatly appreciate your help.
UPDATE 8-1-17: Rescuers have discovered that our sweet Jazebel is diabetic and will now need daily insulin injections. This was not the best news considering her condition. Rescuers are still waiting on more test results but at least she is making progress! RDR's amazing volunteers have been visiting Jezebel at the vets office and this is what one had to say: “I think we should change Jezebel's name to 'Sweetest Softest Cuddliest Baby Angel From Heaven.' This girl is just perfect. This baby deserves to be fed the best, loved the most, by the kindest, for the rest of her precious life. I'm beyond smitten and very grateful I got to swaddle her to oblivion today.”
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give Jezebel a second chance. Purchase a shirt today and save this innocent victim! With your help they can give her a new life full of love and pain free!
