Peaches is part of an ongoing animal torture case being investigated.
This is PEACHES, she was tortured by starvation! Believe it or not this poor girl is only a 2 year old pit mix who weighs only 15 pounds! She's part of a horrific cruelty case in Georgia. Dogs were living on chains and were lying there near death by the time Animal Control arrived on the scene. It was described as so horrible that investigators were in tears and had to get back into their vehicles to compose themselves before returning! Now that is a first!
Imagine how sad and sickening, dogs lying there in the heat, unable to stand or move, hours from death! Investigators said they would not have lived another day. They were finally able to be released despite an ongoing investigation and our partners, Rescue Dogs Rock, took on Peaches and another in similar condition, Sasha. Sadly, rescuers received word this morning that Sasha passed away over night. There are really no adequate words at times like this. We are sad, sickened, too angry for words and heartbroken.
This did not need to happen. This is sadistic torture. These dogs were denied food and trapped outside on chains. They were prisoners dying a slow and agonizing death day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. We will keep everyone update on this open investigation.
As we mourn the loss of Sasha, Peaches just arrived at RDR’s vet and is fighting for her life. She's too weak to stand or walk and if she survives, she has a long road back. She's had bloodwork run, is on IV fluids and is currently receiving a plasma transfusion. She is also loaded with parasites.
We need your support, prayers yes, but we need donations too. This is a big commitment for Rescue Dogs Rock ongoing medical care in a desperate attempt to save this precious dogs life.
UPDATE 7-28-17: She is finally able to stand for short periods, but the medical team has to stand her up and right her paws which buckle under. The poor baby has no muscle and is just skin & bones, but as you can see, her tail is wagging! She knows she is SAFE! We hope she will continue to improve and go on to an amazing life, leaving the horror of lying on a chain in that yard near death, far behind her! She's a fighter with an amazing will to live!
UPDATE 7-31-17: Look who stopped by to say hi! Peaches doing so much better and can stand for short periods with assistance! And she's gained 2 pounds. We couldn't be more thrilled for this sweet girl! Everyone adores her! She is no where near healthy and still desperately needs your support!
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to give peaches a second chance. Purchase a shirt today and save this innocent victim! With your help they can give her a new life full of love and pain free!
