Poppy owners left the vet and took her to the shelter instead.
Poppy went to the vet today in a laundry basket. A senior couple sat with her while they waited to be seen. When their name was called by the vet they were nowhere to be found. Instead they left the vet’s office and were already on their way to the local shelter. They had changed their mind about standing by their pet when she needed them the most. Instead, decided they would dump her at the shelter to be euthanized.
A few minutes later they got to the local shelter and said they “found her” in a Walmart parking lot. It was that easy to get rid of her. It cost them zero dollars to get rid of her and put her in a high kill shelter. Instead of love they chose money…
One of her eyes was missing and the other eye was falling out. How this happened we have no idea.
Rescuers took one look at her and knew without their help she would certainly die in the shelter. Rescue Dogs Rock volunteers rushed to the high kill shelter. Her condition was much worse then what was expected. Now, Poppy is en route to their San Antonio Vet partner for life saving medical treatment. Doctors had no idea what they were getting into.
She needs immediate enucleation of her eye plus blood work, IV and a thorough medical work up. The first thing they did was place her on IV and pain medications to stabilize this poor girl. She cannot get surgery until she is stabilized. Poppy is going to get top notch medical care and will never suffer in silence again. To do this we need your help. With your help we can give this blind senior a second chance at love and life that her owners were unwilling to do.
