Marigold's owners surrendered to a shelter after being horribly neglected for weeks.
Just take a look at her photos and you will see why I am asking for your help. Marigold’s story is so similar to so many others. Her “owners” choose to surrender her to the shelter in this condition. The owners reporter they had a traveling vet come out and treat her. The organization Dallas DogRRR took ownership of the horribly abused dog. The emergency vet and volunteers do NOT believe this baby girl was ever seen by a veterinarian!
However, day after day it is the same story. It is the same excuses and continues to happen over and over! Marigold's condition is improving. She is stable, but she has severe demodex mange with a secondary infection. Her emaciated frame is covered in open infections. Just trying to pet her you can feel her skin is tough like leather.
In arriving at the emergency vet she was stabilized, place on IV fluids, pain medications and antibiotics. She is slightly anemic and heavy heartworm positive. She is emaciated but eating small meals throughout the day and keeping it down. This takes many weeks of rehabilitation to save Marigold’s life.
This case is under-investigation. Now rescuers are focusing on saving Marigold’s life and we are hoping for your support. We have created the animal saving products you see below to help raise the funds needed to cover the costs of Marigold’s care. We ask that you consider purchasing one of the items below and help support Dallas DogRRR save her life.
