Rio: Discarded like trash, severely dehydrated and emaciated

Rio: Discarded like trash, severely dehydrated and emaciated

 

Spotted on the streets of Puerto Rico, Rio was just skin and bones. There was talk of horrific acts that were done to her, including being scooped up and thrown in the back of a garbage truck! She went missing.

Rescuers scoured the streets for days to try to find her again. They went to the dump, where some eyewitnesses claimed they may have seen her. They went up and down the streets and asked around the neighborhoods of her whereabouts. 

Finally, they found her by the river, where was found laying on the ground, probably, as rescuers believe, where she went to die. All humans, prior to now, discarded her like trash.

Rio now needs our help. Her CBC showed that she is severely anemic. Her white blood cells are high and she is battling hookworms. 

She is so deteriorated that she is not strong enough for vaccines. She is on multiple medications now to get her stronger so she can be vaccinated and then eventually transported to New York, under the direct care of New York Bully Crew.
