Remo was left outside in a tiny pen covered in his own maggot-filled feces for MONTHS!
Remo just arrived at Unleashed. This innocent sweet Maltese was left outside in a tiny pen covered in his own maggot-filled feces for MONTHS, during all the heat and rain. He's was so matted, he could barely move. His eyes were even matted shut. We have created this campaign page to help raise the funds needed to save his life.
Unleashed volunteers rushed the baby to their Emergency Vet and they were not prepared for what doctors saw next. Upon taking him to the exam room to be shaved, he collapsed. That's when we noticed his skin was literally crawling from inside. Remo, barely able to lift his head. Maggots were crawling from his ears and every body orifice. We are in tears.
Upon arriving, vet staff shaved him and found several holes in his tiny, fragile, lifeless body, where maggots are eating him alive. This baby has been neglected so damn LONG, that Unleashed Pet Rescue did not think they could save him. During this time, he lifted his head, as to say, "Look people, I'm not giving up. I know the odds are against me, but I didn't survive this hell hole just to be rescued and die the same day!"
That's all he had to do. Unleashed Pet Rescue and ER staff knew this mean he had the will to fight. The vets cautioned rescuers not to be too hopeful, but hope is the only thing they had. While Remo is fighting for his life, I sit here and write this through tears of deep anger and immense sadness, and I urge you to please share, please send prayers/good vibes/juju, please fight for Remo. This is an open investigation case and we will keep you posted on what authorities will find. Police have taken photos as evidence and will be charging the abuser as the investigation progresses. For now we must focus on saving this nugget’s life. Will you join us?
