Simone had acid poured down her back!
Animal Control in Anson County (NC) got a call about a dog someone had poured acid on. The shelter reached out for help before she even arrived and just sent these pictures and a video. They said Simone was gushing blood and her skin was coming off. We were not prepared for what we saw next. I know this is extremely graphic but we cannot hide what was done to her. Will you please help us help Simone?
Our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock took one look at her photos and had Simone immediately taken to their ER Clinic. She was then rushed in for EMERGENCY surgery. This horrific act of cruelty and abuse did not happen today - - her "owner" said it happened days ago. Her doctors estimates it happened closer to a week ago and infection and necrotic skin were present! She was suffering with her skin falling off for an entire week! I am in tears. This is an open investigation.
In the surgery room doctors realized her skin was not attached. It came off in one big sheet. Again, I know this is graphic but this is the reality we are facing. We all know how painful burns are! We are furious and sick. There is no quick fix for Simone who is roughly 2 years old. We have seen dogs recover from burns like this so rescuers have made a promise to tiny Simone they will not stop until she is healed. She has already made it a week and that tells us she wants to live. Please remember she is on the strongest pain medication to keep her comfortable so she isn't feeling anything at all right now which is how it should be! If you can help, please do. She needs you.

We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create these animal saving products to raise the funds needed to save Simone from this horrific torture and abuse.

We are able to report that not only did Simone survive the night, but she's doing as well as can be expected after all the trauma and pain she's endured. She is bandaged up and on the highest pain medication to keep her comfortable. Her recovery is going to be tough but with your help she can survive this horrible torture.
Precious Simone sat a week in horrific pain with chemical burns all over before her owner called animal control to come get her. Her first surgery removed a necrotic patch of skin that covered her entire back! Simone just had her second surgery yesterday to remove the 2nd patch of burned, dead skin from her neck along with getting spayed. No more torture or pain, just love! This beautiful girl will always bear the physical scars of her abusive past, but she holds no grudges against humans. You support Simone's surgeries by purchasing one of her shirts, tank or totes below! Please help become her voice!
WOW, I know this may not seem like a big improvement because its still graphic but keep in mind just how far Simone has come. I mean it is incredible. Simone had acid thrown on her back but those days are over! This sweet shep mix now will only know tender love and care. Rescue Dogs Rock volunteers says she just wants love!
She will always bear scars from her past, but she holds no grudges! With the around the clock care and laser treatments RDR’s vet bill is very high.
