Lizzie was found lifeless on the side of the road in Texas.
It is very difficult to put words together to explain this case. Lizzie was found on the side of the road in Texas by a volunteer Patricia and her husband. It was by chance that she was seen. Lizzie is so ill, so malnourished that she could barely stand. She was able to pull her body to the road where she collapsed inside a ditch. Her breathing lowered and heartbeat slowed and she passed out.
The sweet couple were driving when they spotted her tiny body in a ditch. It is as if Lizzie was brought to the road on the wings of angels. She was rushed to the ICU were doctors have started to stabilize her in Houston, Texas. Lizzie is so emaciated and infested with fleas. She has no hair and body has scabs. Her eyes are infected and covered in pus. She had a life saving blood transfusion to save her life.
This type of care will cost in the thousands and that is not funds that rescuers at New York Bully Crew has! We are sponsoring Lizzie's ICU care with a custom apron I made. I ask that, if you can, please consider purchasing one of these Save Lizzie aprons and help rescuers save her!
