Silverado has been kept in a crate and starved almost to death.
There is no doubt that Silverado did not come from the streets. He has been horrible abused and neglected. He was someone's dog until recently (possibly even today). Silverado is covered in his own urine and has soars all over his body from being emaciated and laying on a hard surface. His nails are extremely overgrown, and very painful. He doesn't have any ticks or fleas and other than being covered in urine he isn't that dirty.
This means he was kept in a crate for a very long time. How do they know? several reasons: when dogs have been out in the streets and get to this point, they are so weak and defeated that they no longer are in the starving mode, this boy was starved to the point, where he was able to survive but still food motivated. We have created this campaign page to help raise the funds to save Silverado’s life.
Rescuers took one look at Silverado and rushed him to the Emergency Room. The emergency vet can almost bet he came from the area he was found. The first thing they did was stabilize him and assess his condition. They had a complete blood panel done and will know more tomorrow morning. For now they are focused on saving his life. But they cannot do that without your support!
This is where we are asking for your help! His care will cost in the thousands. That is just not the type of funds 2nd "Chance" Dog Rescue has. We have stepped in to help in our own little way. We have created the Animal Abuse Awareness shirts, hoodies, totes and bracelets you see below. We ask that if you would consider one of these items for your Christmas gift list. It's a great gift to give to family and friends and you get to tell them not only did they get a cute shirt but they helped save Silverado.
