Rock's family dumped at the shelter to be disposed of.

Rock's family dumped at the shelter to be disposed of.

 

Rescue Dogs Rock’s hope they are in time for Rock, but it is too early to know. The "family" who dumped him "to be disposed of" waited just long enough for him to be at death's door. It's completely disgusting and unacceptable! Rock is not garbage and he DOES MATTER!

Not only is Rock emaciated, but that huge tumor is all infected with puss and he smells terrible. He has been on IV antibiotics since he got to RDR’s vet partner and they are hitting him with the strongest antibiotics they have. Rock has a very elevated white blood cell count due to infection and the doctor is worried about sepsis. He also has a very low red blood count which dropped this morning and he needed a blood transfusion today.

Our hearts break for this sweet boy who was completely failed by his “family". Right now we take it minute by minute. Rock is not stable enough for surgery now so the goal is to fight the infection and try to stabilize him. Let's hope he's got some fight left and that his "family" didn't just do him in.

Now we are asking for the public’s help. We have created this special page to help raise funds needed to save his life and support RDR. With every tee, hoodie, bracelet, or dog accessory purchased, you can help save Rock! Get your Rocky product and save his life!


UPDATE 3-26-17 : Surgery to amputate that leg with the massive tumor was yesterday. As you can see it has grown A LOT in the 2 weeks since RDR took him in. He was in very BAD shape when rescuers took him and riddled with infection and septic, so surgery had to wait until he was stable or he would not have survived surgery. Now the tumor is so massive there is no choice but to operate. Please keep Rock in your thoughts and prayers today!

Now we are asking for the public’s help. We have created this special page to help raise funds needed to save his life and support RDR. With every tee, hoodie, bracelet, or dog accessory purchased, you can help save Rock! Get your Rocky product and save his life!
