Sesame's owners dumped him in the road.
We have created this campaign to help raise the funds needed to save a dog who is barely alive.
I am finding it very difficult to form the words to explain what has happened to this senior found in this horrific condition. My word...what have they done to this animal? The shelter just contacted our partners at Second Chance Rescue NYC about Sesame, a senior that was DUMPED on the road. You read that right, not hit by a car, neglected and dumped like there was never a moment in his life that he mattered.
When was he dumped? No idea, but I can tell you he has been neglected for a very long time. His gross injuries and wounds show a vivid map of lengthy neglect. Every day has been robbed of this poor dog, dignity torn away. How long has Sesame been alone with his own thoughts and pain? He is SATURATED in urine and feces, he has maggots that have burrowed deep under his flesh and reproduced. You can smell this poor animal from a mile away to the point that it makes rescuers gag.
Second Chance Rescue NYC are rushing this baby straight to the ER where doctors are waiting to try and save him. Rescuers are hoping they are not too late. Now we need your help raising the funds to save Sesame.
To help save Sesame please consider purchasing one of his shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. With every purchase you can help us cover his life saving surgeries and save his life.
I have a heartbreaking message from Sesame's rescuers at Second Chance Rescue NYC...
The universe has taken Sesame home. He walked over the rainbow bridge & has been restored to his old majestic powerful self. This is a gift after hours of deliberation that we decided to do for this animal, in my heart I know it is the kindest thing anyone has ever done for him. I will never understand what kind of savage would be alright with their dog getting to this neglected state.
How do you wake up in the morning & face yourself knowing you destroyed & wasted someone who loved you unconditionally. I am no hero, I am someone who respects all living creatures & our foundation is based off of love and respect. If you get a dog here are the most important rules: LOVE THEM HARD, BE THE PERSON YOUR DOG THINKS YOU ARE, PROVIDE THEM WITH MEDICAL CARE= a beautiful union. Sesame deserved better than this. Sesame was suffering & there was nothing we could do to make IT STOP! No pain killers or surgeries could have helped him.
The first round of diagnostics didn't scare me, he was potentially headed for a plasma transfusion, was on every med in the book, anemic, had a uti, DEEP SORES on his hips, maggots, intestinal parasites etc...A handful of hours later, we got the X-rays back , he was done..His spine..was done, a calcified bridge was created over time of bone that we would literally have had to break this 11 year old dogs back & fuse it all together in HOPES that the spine would straighten out, it would not have worked & I was not going to attempt to try. He was too proud & resilient to let go, so I did him the favor & released his tired destroyed body.
It is a decision I had hoped I didn't have to make, the 6th time I have ever had to do it in 3 years having over 400 train wreck medical cases. If I could have traded bodies with him & take his pain, I would have. This was also the decision highly in favor of his stellar expert medical team at SAVES ATLANTA. His doctors ran out & got him chocolate munchkins to eat before they let him go.I am going to make 2 promises right now: 1. I will find the younger version of him to save & I will make it my life's work to never allow anything to harm that animal. 2. Tomorrow, I'm picking 4 dogs to save from the shelter that found him in honor of him. Every soul deserves unconditional love and happiness.
I have nothing more to say................"
