Liberty was going to be euthanized by shelter staff because she was sick.
“Take her to the back, they said”. Staff at the shelter wanted to euthanize her. They said she was too sick to stay in their shelter. One brave volunteer decided to step up and she reached out to the nonprofit Dallas Dog RRR.
Rescuers rushed to the shelter knowing time of was of the essence. While she was being transported rescuers syringed 40cc of fluids and started her on a feeding schedule. She arrive at the Emergency Clinic where her temperature was below 95. Liberty is underweight, her skin is raw and bloody. Her initial blood work was extremely concerning and she needed an emergency blood transfusion. Rescuers have named her Liberty because of being found on 4th of July.
Having worked in animal rescue for 14 years I have seen so many shelter animals euthanized because there is simply no way a shelter can or wants to care for animals like Liberty so I am incredibly grateful to the rescuers at DDRRR and the volunteer who stepped in. She was now transported to Dallas.
This type of care will cost thousands and thousands of dollars for Dallas Dog RRR and I wanted to help sponsor that care. We have created the animal saving products you see below to help Liberty! No animal should ever have to suffer like this again. She will be headed to a medical foster in Dallas.
UPDATE 8-1-19: Liberty's blood transfusion was a success but the infection covering her body is still healing. She has been receiving around the clock care and is now at her medical foster! Thank you to her caregivers and all of you who have helped us sponsor her ongoing vetting.
UPDATE 8-19-19: Liberty is looking like a completely different dog now! Not only has she found her voice (barking at her foster home's neighbors lol) but her skin is healed and you can see part of her fur growing back. This is a true miracle and a great story showing just how important rescuers are!
Please pray for this baby Liberty and If you can I ask that you help me sponsor her! I created custom products with a photo of Liberty We have sponsored her care by creating the animal saving products you see below. Please consider purchasing something below to help.
