Pearl: Help give her the hospice care she needs to live the rest of her life pain free.

 

Pearl was found as a stray and turned in to the Fort Bend County, TX. Thanks to social media networking by volunteers her story made it to Fort Worth. Apollo Support & Rescue spoke and decided to team up and help her, along with another dog named Bennie that we believe may have come from the same home as Pearl.

Plans were put in place immediately to bring both dogs to Fort Worth to begin treatment. Fort Bend volunteers arranged for urgent care locally as well as transport assistance north the following morning.

My heart melted for Pearl the moment I first saw her. Her eyes told a story of neglect I could only imagine and she looked as though she had come to accept that it was always going to be that way for her. Her body also told a story. Her nails were so long that they twisted and turned together, wrapped around each other and circling back up to her pads. Pearl was severely infected with hookworms that left her weak from anemia. She 's covered in five very large tumors, one that consumes her entire leg and limits her ability to walk. She has a large tumor in the nail bed of another leg causing some deformity to some of her toes that restricts her movement even further.

It gets worse. Pearl has severe eye, ear, skin and tooth infections and is estimated to be 15-16 years old. She has not been spayed and appears to have had multiple litters. The nails were so long that it appears she hasn't walked on solid ground in years. She is most likely the product of an extremely neglectful and uncaring backyard breeder.

But there is hope. Pearl is receiving the best possible vet care. The hookworms and all of the infections are being treated and it's obvious she's already feeling much better. Unfortunately, the tumors were allowed to grow to such an extent that they're now too large to remove without endangering her. She has a 3/6 grade heart murmur. The worst possible news is the tumor on her paw. Biopsy revealed that it is malignant and it has spread to her lungs. Her prognosis is 30-60 days as these types of tumors spread rapidly. Treatment at this time would drastically impact her quality of life and would not add much time for her. Apollo Support & Rescue has chosen to fix everything they can and will make her very comfortable and pain free for her remaining months of life. She's under the care of an amazing foster and vet tech named Durisa Howard and is receiving not only 24/7 care, but round the clock love from her and her family.

There will be many firsts for her. Warm baths, massage, trips to the park and the duck pond, pretty dresses to protect her skin, doggie ice creams and puppaccinos. Rescuers said "I'm the luckiest person in the world to know this dog and get to be with her through this journey, however short. My heart aches for her but right now the focus is her happiness and I only wish that we had more time." We have partnered with Apollo Support & Rescue to help raise the funds needed for Pearl's hospice care. She deserves a life of love and hope.

Apollo Support & Rescue INc

Our organization rescues dogs from local North Texas animal shelters or dogs trying to survive from abuse or neglect and living a hard life on the street. If only dogs could talk we would know more about their history and where they came from. They may have scars, been abused or abandon or just lost their way. Our goal at Apollo is to be a stepping stone to care for them and place them in homes that believe in second chances.
