Melvin is just one of 30 dogs found in horrible condition after his owner died.

 

LOUISVILLE, KY - Thirty dogs are being cared for after their owner was found dead in her LaRue County home. Now, one of those dogs is getting the extra help he needs.

Melvin, who is severely emaciated, was living in horrific conditions. After being taken to Hardin County's animal shelter, Melvin was brought to Blue Pearl Animal Hospital in Louisville where he will be cared for by the Arrow Fund. There has been an issue regulating Melvin's glucose levels . He is being monitored very closely . He is currently on IV fluids , an antibiotic, and medicine for parasites. Now they need our help!

"He is skin and bones. He is body scale one," said Rebecca Eaves of the Arrow Fund. "He still has active fleas running on him and we will do blood work, we will do everything. He will start on a slow feeding process."

This type of condition will take at least a month of around the clock care for Melvin to start to heal both physically and mentally. I cant imagine how scary this must be for tiny Melvin.


UPDATE 5-28-17: Melvin has gained about 1/2 of a pound and has been diagnosed with diabetes. He at this time requires insulin twice a day. He is still at the Emergency Hospital being monitored. Because of this condition it is expected that his weight gain will be a little slower . This diagnosis was just confirmed. Melvin is such a gentle, precious baby and still needs our help!

This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with RDR to create the animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save Melvin. The neglect he has been through and loosing his mommy all at the same time is unbelievable but we are here to pick up the pieces. Purchase your animal saving tee today and help us save Melvin.
