Mochi has been roaming the streets with his leg hacked off!
He has lived a life of only pain. Imagine having your leg hacked off and living with no pain medications for weeks. Our partners at Little League Rescue received photos of little Mochi in an area where animals are living and dying in the streets. Sadly, rescuers frequently visit this site to save many animals just like him. To say we need your help is an understatement.
He was found on the streets with a severed leg and terrible scars across his body, primarily localized to his back. We don't know what he's been through but it wasn't nice. We can assume he has been badly abused. His severed leg has been healing for some time meaning he has been living with these exposed tissues and susceptible to serious infection.
There is granulation tissue on the remainder of his leg which tells us that this is not a new injury. His back along his spine has significant scaring from unknown trauma. Because of the location of his injury, the entire leg needs to be amputated.
After surgery he will undergo physical therapy to ensure his back is strong and healthy with his adjusted gait. Through all of his unimaginable pain, Mochi is the happiest boy! He is a ray of constant sunshine and hasn't let his traumatic past effect his amazing demeanor. Founder Sandy of Little League Rescue told me she has been lucky enough to spend a great deal of time with him and he is such an incredible little light! Won’t you help us save his life? His recovery will not be easy but LLR and our team have made a promise that we will not stop until he is safe.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with Little League Rescue to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give Mochi a second chance. Purchase a shirt today and save this innocent victim of abuse! With your help they can give Mochi a new life full of love and pain free!
Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary
Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary is an organization in southern Arizona that changes the fate of homeless animals. The volunteer-run rescue lifts the animals out of the shelter system, placing them instead in loving, temporary foster homes. Many of these animals are ill, injured, or suffering from malnourishment, so we attain the necessary medical care to return them to health. Every animal is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Loving foster parents, Veterinarians, and an certified animal behaviorist help them overcome physical and psychological issues to again be healthy, happy pets ready for their permanent homes.
