Louie has been living in a drain pipe trying to survive.
This is happening now. Sadly rescuing never has a reprieve, even on Mother’s Day. This little boy, rescuers have named Louie, has been roaming a wooded area in Ennis, Texas for TEN days in this condition! He is barely 10 pounds, emaciated and his skin is raw! This story gets eve more heartbreaking. He was sleeping in a nearby drain pipe all this time! It was his only way of staying warm and not dying.
He hides his face and shakes out of fear. A rescuer’s grandmother has been coaxing him to her porch slowly to win his trust and today he was caught by Rescue Dogs Rock volunteers. Now we need your help.
He is being rushed to the emergency hospital as we speak. Please help. Emergency Hospitals are very costly and he needs emergency supportive care or he won't survive. He is a walking skeleton. His skin is severely infected and raw to the touch.
Rescuers and Doctors hope he's not in shock and they hope he fights to live. They will do everything they possibly can to help Louie but we need your support! We cannot do this without you! He is just a baby tossed out like garbage.

UPDATE 5-17-17: After 3 nights in the Emergency Hospital , Louie was finally well enough to move to RDR's Dallas Vet partner for continued medical care. He still on an IV, receiving much needed fluids but he's actually eating and drinking on his own now, which is a great sign. Louie was truly at deaths door, living 10 days in a drain pipe, alone and starving and in very rough shape. Rescuers are glad they got the call Saturday night to help Louie and that we were able to get him into an emergency hospital, which most definitely saved his life. We anticipate that Louie will continue to get stronger but he still is in guarded condition.
UPDATE 5-31-17: Remember Louie found in the middle of the night in a drain pipe where he existed for 10 days with no food or water? Well since he was rescued he's been recovering at RDR vet partner and has made a miraculous recovery to date. His skin is still red but healing, he's gaining weight and his spirits are lifting. He still needs your help! Help Louie continue his recovery by donating to his medical care ...
UPDATE 6-6-17 Louie made it to NY and he's now in the arms of his loving Foster Moms! We could not be happier. He's being spoiled like he should be and putting his past, way behind him! Louie is so tiny and frail and needs some fattening up which we expect is already under way. Louie will be ready soon for his forever home.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create the animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save Louie. Purchase your animal saving tee today and help us save this innocent baby.
