Opie is fighting for his life.
This is turning out to be a horrific start to our year. The abuse is only increasing. We are so angry over the condition of this poor helpless puppy. We are angry and disgusted! This 5 month old puppy is fighting for his life as we speak. He needs all of us to fight with him.
Here is what we know. He entered Fulton County Animal Shelter earlier today as a stray. Rescuers took one look at his video and new this was life and death. He was immediately transferred to Rescue Dogs Rock’s GA emergency vet partner for urgent, life saving care.
He's only 10 pounds… how he survived this long is beyond me. It only gets worse. His temperature isn't even registering right now. This is critical guys. He's in for the fight of his life! Let's just hope we are in time! Urgent funds needed, please help us save Opie!

We must work together to stop this from happening, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year! These animals deserve to be loved, cared for, humanely treated, treated with compassion and most certainly fed.”

Update : We have devastating news to Share Our Beloved Opie has passed awayWe really thought he would turn a corner and get a little stronger every day, but unfortunately he pretty much remained in this weakened state , depicted in this photo.
Every possible test was conducted by our medical team, to decipher if there were any underlying issues causing Opies weakness other than being emaciated and each test performed was inconclusive for any abnormalitiesWe suspect that Opie was just so neglected before rescue and there was just so much damage already done to his tiny body over a period of time , there was little hope at survivalIf only we found him sooner ...We would have done anything for him , anything to keep him aliveWe are saddened , we are defeated , we are ANGRY.
Opie's life mattered and he will never be forgottenThank you to all of his amazing supporters , we truly cannot continue without your continued support , especially at times like thisFly high sweet Opie We Mourn your loss and will honor your passing by continuing to fight for the neglected and abused dogs around the country that need us so muchRest In Peace Sweet Opie , you deserved so much more...
