RIP - Matteo was alone suffering and cannot walk!

 
HE CANNOT EVEN WALK!

I am in tears. He cannot walk... His head shakes with pain. His skin is literally falling off. What emergency staff found out next was shocking... Keep Reading : http://dogco.org/save-matteo-rdr.

Friends, I am in tears after watching this video. I don't know what to say. Matteo cannot walk. He just wiggles across the floor to move. So helpless. So hurt. Never has he felt the love of a human. His head shakes from pain. His skin is cracked so badly, it's peeling off. He was at the end of the road and on his last days without our intervention. Please help us save him! We need you! He needs you! 

Matteo was admitted into the Emergency Hospital at 1:13 AM this morning after being rescued yesterday from the streets of Dallas, Texas. He was picked up in an area where many dogs are trying to survive on their own, fighting for their lives, with no food water or shelter. Clearly Matteo has been alone and suffering for a very long time and is in critical condition. 

Jacquelyn writes, "Rescue is a 24/7, 365 day a year commitment ... We have many sleepless nights caring for our dogs with life threatening illness. Last night was no exception..."

There is a team of emergency doctors dedicated to Matteo. He was immediately hooked up to an IV as he's completely dehydrated. He is on pain medications. Tests will be performed to further discover what he needs and why he is paralyzed.  

We need your help now. RDR stated, "Emergency Hospitals are not cheap and our bill is already at $1500 for just walking thru the doors..." We have created this campaign to help raise funds for Matteo's life saving care. We have a goal to raise all the funds needed! Everything you see here whether it's a tee shirt, a tote bag, a bracelet or hoodie… Everything here helps us save Matteo! Help us make the holidays about saving a life. Help us make your holiday gifts about saving Matteo's life! 


UPDATE: Mateo has been released by the ER Hospital and spent the night in a great medical foster home along with his mate Pablo. We will see how Mateo feels today. Both dogs are on multiple medications for their skin eyes and ears. Rescuer's goals are to get both Mateo and Pablo to NY as soon as possible into RDR's partner veterinarian. Please keep these 2 deserving dogs in your prayers. They still remain in critical condition and need all the help they can get! Continue to share their stories and become their voice! 


UPDATE 12-8-16 : With tears in my eyes I must tell you that Mateo passed away peacefully in his sleep … Rescuers knew it was an uphill battle, he was in such horrific condition, but we hoped and prayed for a miracle and that Mateo would somehow defeat the odds and survive.

RDR writes, “We tried so hard to turn his life around but we were to late. The damage was done from the years he lived on the streets, fighting off the outside world."

We are so sorry Mateo that we failed you

We tried so very hard to save you

Rest In Peace Mateo

You will never be forgotten

You will be in our hearts forever
