Nessie knew she was going to be euthanized.
Imagine suffering in a cold dark kennel knowing your time is up. I don't care what some people think about how much dogs “feel” because I can tell you they know. I can see it in their eyes at the shelter. They know they won't make it. Nessie was one of those dogs.
Nessie’s body is visually destroyed. How she got in this condition we do not know. What we do know without intervention she would be euthanized at the shelter. Well our friends at MAIN (medical animals in need) took one look at her shelter video and rushed to save her. Volunteers pulled the tiny Nessie and brought her to their emergency vet.
Nessie is covered in infection, missing most of her hair, completely emaciated, her ears are full of puss and she couldn't lift her head at the shelter. She walks a hunched and she has very limited range of movement in her neck area. This is not good. Doctors took x-rays and they showed extensive arthritis in her neck and back.
She has medication for her ears and her skin, as well as medication for Kennel Cough. Yes she has a lot to overcome but MAIN knows she can do this. With your help Nessie can survive.
We have partnered with MAIN to create the Animal Welfare Awareness candles and apparel you see below. With every purchase you help give Nessie the life saving care she desperately needs. With your help she will never feel pain again.
