Polly was found curled up in a high kill shelter waiting to die.
This is one of those cases you have to see to believe. I have been saving animals since a teenager and this is one of the worst cases of abuse I have seen. Polly skin is literally falling off. Her fur is riddled with wounds. The saddest part is she is only 4 years old!
Believe or not this little girl is a Lab but unrecognizable from the abuse. Polly was found curled up in a shelter cage at the San Antonio Animal Care Services. Volunteers were horrified when they first met her. Luckily her photos went viral on Facebook and Rescue Dogs Rock stepped up to save her life.
Who did this? Why?Where had she been and what happened? Was she another victim of dog fighting? We may never know.
“Polly is lucky to be alive. We were heartbroken when we saw this poor girl. Polly needs and deserves all of our help. Please help, and stand with us against abuse. If you suspect any animal is being abused or neglected, don’t wait for the next person. Please don’t turn your back as someone did with Polly – stand up for the defenseless,” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of RDR.
Polly is in CRITICAL CONDITION. Her severely compromised condition with painful red skin and deep sores – both infected and swollen, will not make recovery easy. She has been rushed to an Emergency Hospital were a team of vets and vet techs were waiting to spring into action to save her life. She was in worse condition than they originally thought. This will not be easy but I know, with your help, we can save Polly!
Update 2-1-17: Polly has been suffering for a VERY long time and is frankly, lucky to be alive! She is covered in bloody sores and RDR's transport volunteer (thank you Cathi) who took her from the shelter to the vet said she is much worse in person. We cannot even imagine. Yet another sweet soul failed by humans who has suffered unthinkable pain for absolutely NO REASON! Sickening isn't it?! How do we stop this from continually happening?! One way to to refuse to be silent & be their voice. If you know of a dog who is being abused or neglected for Gods sake, DO SOMETHING! Document it, report it, post it! Social media is a very valuable tool, use it! The animals deserve it! Stand with us against abuse!
We are now asking for your help. We have created this campaign with RDR to help us raise the funds needed. Every shirt, hoodie, tote and bracelet are dedicated to Polly. With every Polly Product you can help provide life saving care. Help give this girl a second chance at love and life!
