Imagine suffering in a cold dark cage alone and scared. Imagine everyone passing by and not giving you any love or attention. Now imagine all that while having rotting dyeing flesh over your body. That's the life this poor dog has lived until now.
Rescuers got a call from one of their volunteers who saw a dog suffering greatly in a high kill rural shelter. The Pit Sisters Rescue stepped up to save Shelton. He was rushed to the emergency vet getting life saving surgery. Because he was found by animal control in this condition his abusers will most likely never be prosecuted. We are as frustrated as you are about this but now we are focused on saving Shelton's life.
Emergency vet staff says he has multiple puncture wounds and a large gaping hole in his back. And it gets even worse. He has maggots invested in his ears and ticks and fleas all over his body. Shelton's skin is badly infected and puss is oozing from his body. When the doctor went to get him to lie down, puss literally just came pouring out of his back. He has dead flesh all around his wounds. You can smell the rotting flesh from his body.
Staff cleaned his wounds and have him on hydrotherapy. Today they will start hyperbaric oxygen treatments. The next 3 days will be critical for him but he is eating and he is also receiving IV fluids.
I'm asking. And begging, please... please help me save Shelton! We have partnered with The Pit Sisters to create this campaign and shirt designs to help raise the funds needed for Shelton's recovery. Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save his life!
