Rachel was dumped at the shelter blind and very ill.
A dog named Rachel is asking for your help, “My owners surrendered me to a high kill shelter in Texas. I went for months and months without treatment on my eyes. They didn't get me the medical care I needed. And now, I'm blind and in need of surgery when I am well enough to withstand it. Sadly, I also have Eurlichia (tick borne disease). They will try to save my eyes if they can. But there is no guarantee.
My eyes are filled with pus, and all I've known for months and months is pain. My owners didn't care and they dumped me like this at the shelter.”
Now we are here to help save Rachel. Our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC rushed to the shelter to transport Rachel to their emergency vet and away from the noisy shelter that was filled with so many terrifying smells and sounds. Rachel will need emergency care to be stabilized and surgery to repair or remove her eyes. Please help.
Rescue Dogs Rock founder Jacki wrote, “Thank you for stepping up time and again to help the needy. We are so grateful that you are fighting with us with your prayers and donations! Dogs like Rachel are an every day reality for us. We see them - sadly their need doesn't seem to end...... We wish it would and that people would be more responsible for the lives they are supposed to care for.”
UPDATE: Here is Rachel today. Her eyes have been cleaned from all the puss and mucous. You can tell she’s much more comfortable. One eye will definitely have to be removed and rescuers are hoping doctors can save the other eye. Rachel is too weak to have surgery at this point due to having eurlichia a Tick Borne illness which has caused severe anemia. Rachel has suffered from severe neglect for months if not years. The frustrating part is If only someone had treated her eyes with inexpensive medication she would not be in this predicament right now. Rachel needs prayers shared and donations!
