Toast only had hours before the shelter was going to euthanize him.
Rescue Dogs Rocks sent out a plea for their latest rescue who has parvovirus. He came into the shelter very lethargic and tested positive to this deadly virus. Normally, in a shelter, they would die but not today! He clearly has been neglected and his fur is so matted he can hardly walk.
Sadly, rescuers suspect he has been living like this for years. The shelter cannot treat parvovirus positive dogs nor can they hold them at the shelter. Volunteers only had until 5pm yesterday or he was going to be euthanize. They rushed the pup to an emergency hospital for life saving care.
“We could not just sit by and allow Toasts fate to be unknown” Volunteers wrote “We immediately stepped up to do so as he certainly deserves every chance.”
Right now he is at an NY Emergency Vet partner receiving life saving medical saving care and on a 24 hour IV. When he arrived at our vet, he was so severely matted his ears were stuck to his body. Our vet immediately got to work and shaved off all the matted hair on poor Toasts little body. These photos show pure neglect on the part of Toasts past owner to allow him to spiral into this condition ...
We cannot save him without your help. We have partnered with RDR to create Toast’s campaign to help raise the funds needed for his care. Everything you see here on his page from a shirt, hoodie, tote or bracelet triggers a life saving donation. Please, if you can, support Toast and his recovery.
