Mya was going to be euthanized.
Mya was on the euthanasia list at a high kill shelter. She didn’t have much time left before she was going to be killed. Like most dogs she had little hope. Not only is she a senior dog but she has been horribly abused and neglected.
This 10 year old senior has a long list of medical issues. Our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock knew if they did not step in she would surely be euthanized. So they rushed her from the shelter to the emergency vet with no idea just how damaged her body was.
Here is what we know. She has a large and infected wound on her side, she has been starved almost to death and her ears have been virtually destroyed from god only knows what. The list goes on and on.
As you see in the photos, her ears are awful. The right ear has a large tumor growing inside which will require surgery to remove her ear canal. The large red angry wound is ulcerated and infected. It could be a burn, we just can’t be sure. It cannot be closed up due to it’s size so will be treated with laser and antibiotics. She has a very long road ahead of her.
If you could help with Mya’s surgery and extensive vetting, we would greatly appreciate it. We have stepped in to help in our own little way. We have created the Animal Abuse Awareness shirts, hoodies, totes and bracelets you see below. We ask that if you would consider one of these items for your Christmas gift list. It's a great gift to give to family and friends and you get to tell them they helped save Mya.
