River needs to be transported from Puerto Rico to Dallas!
We have created this campaign to help raise the funds needed to transport an abused dog from Puerto Rico.
Meet River who was found all alone and starving on the streets of Puerto Rico. Many people walked by her but did not stop to help. Her entire body is covered in burns and infection. She is completely hairless. She has one of the cases of mange we have ever seen.
River was rushed by a volunteer to a specialist in Puerto Rico who can handle a case like this. Our partners at Dallas DogRRR have stepped in to save her. It looks like her leg had a fracture that healed wrong. They have recommended that she be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon. Her skin is still infected and raw, she is skin and bones and understandably in a lot of pain!
Sadly, she is a young baby that needs our help and needs out of Puerto Rico. We desperately need your help raising the funds to transport River to Dallas TX. She really needs to get to the States. She needs US to save her and give her a “SECOND CHANCE at LIFE”
To help transport River to the States please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. With every purchase you can help Dallas DogRRR save River’s life.
Update August 29, 2018
We are extremely sad to announce that River has crossed the rainbow bridge. She passed away in her sleep late yesterday evening. River held on for as long as she could, and she was surrounded by loving arms in her final days.
Dallas DogRRR is a group of dedicated, animal-loving volunteers who support the abandoned dogs of Dallas, Texas, by collecting supplies, paying vet bills, locating foster families, facilitating adoptions, and advocating for a more hopeful future. We are often seen even in the trenches of SE Dallas searching for and rescuing forgotten dogs. We have no administrative fees; no one is on payroll. Every single cent that is donated goes directly to paying for vet bills and food/supplies for our rescued dogs, as well as for boarding (for those that don’t have fosters). We are simply a group of volunteers motivated by the inspiring rescue stories that we get to be a part of every day!
