Ritzie's brother passed away but she still needs your help!
When will people care for their PETS? These two babies were found as strays! They were taken from the animal control truck to a hard cold floor at the shelter and scared to death. They were shivering in the back of the kennel.
Rescuers at Dallas Dog RRR immediately rushed Ritzie and Carlton to the vet! Carlton the lighter one was in the worst condition. He was weak, anemic, covered in infection and severely dehydrated. Both puppies spent the night in ICU and under 24/7 hospitalization.
The darker puppy Ritzie was stabilized but her brother Carlton continued to decline. Carlton remained in critical condition but last night Carlton passed away in the hands of his rescuer. As heartbroken as rescuers are they must focus on saving the life of his sister in honor of Carlton. For that we are asking for your help.
Ritzie’s body is covered in mange and infection and she is completely emaciated. We are just as angry as you are that someone dumped these two puppies to fend for themselves. We may never know who did this but Ritzie is a fighter.
UPDATE 6-13-19: After losing her brother Ritzie needs to heal both physically and emotionally. Her temp. foster mommy Sarah Reese said the puppy is super sweet and just loves being right by her side all the time. This is a great sign for her recovery! Please continue to share her story and help DDRRR find her a permanent medical foster. You can help cover her care below.
