Stallone was taken in a cold dark metal truck.
The word “Dog Catcher” means a community official assigned to catch and dispose of stray dogs. This is a tough job and an awful part of reality.
This dog was caught by one of these dog catchers. He was transported in this cold truck scared out of his mind. Can you imagine? He sits wondering what his fate holds.
The local shelter in Dallas reached out to the rescue group Dallas Dog RRR and sent a picture of this stray dog on a cold day knocking over people's’ trash cans. He was searching for scraps of food.
Their volunteers took one look and knew they needed to step in to save this dog’s life. For that we are asking for your help.
He will need to be evaluated by a doctor immediately. He is already at the emergency vets. We will keep your updates on his health. In the meantime please help this dog rescuers are calling Stallone.
UPDATE 12-3-18: We have some good news to share. Stallone received clearance to have his surgery. Although his bloodwork shows “NO CHANGE” he must have surgery immediately because his tumor is becoming necrotic and needs to be removed. TODAY. We are hoping for speedy recovery.
Please consider purchasing one of Stallone’s products you see below to help raise the funds for his care. With every purchase you can help rescuers give this stay dog the care he deserves.
Dallas DogRRR is a group of dedicated, animal-loving volunteers who support the abandoned dogs of Dallas, Texas, by collecting supplies, paying vet bills, locating foster families, facilitating adoptions, and advocating for a more hopeful future. We are often seen even in the trenches of SE Dallas searching for and rescuing forgotten dogs. We have no administrative fees; no one is on payroll. Every single cent that is donated goes directly to paying for vet bills and food/supplies for our rescued dogs, as well as for boarding (for those that don’t have fosters). We are simply a group of volunteers motivated by the inspiring rescue stories that we get to be a part of every day!
