Oscar was horrible neglected by his "owner".
Local police reached out for immediate help for a dog no-one who save. “This is a case Owner Neglect, he is a mess and we don’t want to send to the shelter, can you help?”, wrote the local officer to Dallas Dog RRR.
Rescuers immediately rushed Oscar straight to the emergency vets. Her is in horrible condition and needed to be stabilized before treatment can start. I am so angry. This is not “neglect” this is ABUSE!
He has Mange that is 1” thick making is skin crack and bleed. He is infested with ticks and fleas. He has a fungal infection and the odor is indescribable. Like he is rotting away. Oscar has severe anemia and is horribly dehydration.
As soon as he got off the police truck, Oscar gave up and collapsed on the ground as if he knew he didn’t need to fight and he would get help. I have tears in my eyes. Oh sweet Oscar.
He didn’t deserve the life he has received, but that life is over now. We’ve got you now, boy. We will do whatever it takes to save you and provide you with the love and life you deserve. He is getting emergency around the clock care.
This type of care will cost rescuers thousands of dollars and those are funds they do not have. We are here to help! Please consider donating or purchasing one of our $7 shirts to help sponsor his vetting. Thank you so much for reading his story.
