June 2011 – Neosho rescues

We have rescued many special cases in the last few weeks. I find it so sad that these helpless animals get stuck in high kill shelters and they need medical treatment so people are begging for someone to rescue them and no one does. I sure wish we had a supply of money just for these cases :-(

We had an openings for 3 small dogs and heard about a hoarder situation and agreed to take 2 of the small dogs from there. When the transporter arrived at the home, she found an almost dead JRT and called to see if we could also take this one. Now, we have no business taking on this poor dog not knowing what he is going to need, but I can’t say “no, just leave him there to potentially die”……….so she brings us the three and Neosho, the extremely ill one is too weak to stand. A volunteer rush him to Urgent Care because of course, it’s on the weekend and they said he needed a blood transfusion that he was so anemic that without one he would die probably within 24 hours.

He was then rushed to the Emergency Clinic and indeed had to have an emergency blood transfusion. He was so infested with fleas and internal parasites, they had depleted him of almost all his blood!! He is now doing great and basically just waiting for his anemia to be completely gone, then neutered and ready to find his new family. The other two were Ferris and Falco, Falco will be going next week, Ferris is still looking.
