Chiquita Update, Day 3:
We have been giving her all the care and nourishment possible, but she is still in a very bad way. Her poor body is too exhausted to move and she still has very little interest in eating. We are giving her subcutaneous fluids, but she’s still dangerously dehydrated. Believe it or not, these photos don’t even do justice to the terrible condition she is in. At 2 years old, she is only 16" at the withers.
We are monitoring her closely and doing all we can to help her pull through, but she is not out of the woods yet. She will absolutely need follow-up vet care for several months, which is going to add up quickly (not to mention the follow-up visit that Ellie has today, and Tre’s dental extraction Tuesday...). If you would like to donate toward her care, you can use the Donate button below, or via paypal.me/shawpbr. You can also call in a donation directly to our vet (Animal Clinic of Columbus) at 662-327-9414.
LOCAL FOLKS, we could also use donations of canned sardines, canned tuna, or deer meat - these are the best foods to encourage our sick babies to eat and put on weight.
We truly appreciate all of our supporters, and even the smallest contribution makes a difference. That includes sharing our posts with all your friends, and sending us your positive thoughts and prayers.
We couldn’t do it without you! #shawpbr#spayandneuter#adoptdontshop#adoptables#pitbulladvocate#pitbulladvocates#pitbullofficial#pitbulllove#pitbulllover#pitbulllovers#ilovepitbulls#ilovepitbull#pitbulldog#pitbullmom#pitbull 🐶 #pitbull_advocate
RESCUED, REHABILITATED & READY for his Furrrrever Home! Bamboo shares a similar story to our Ruthie for those of you who are new to his story. After being rescued from horrific "living conditions" tied to a stove, representing skin & bones, Bamboo joined the Redemption Rescue pack and has made strides in regaining his quality of life.
This now neutered young man has been in ongoing training since joining his rescue pack. His excitable spirit fills a room and his snuggly self warms your heart. Bamboo requires a healthy dose of daily exercise and continued training at home to keep his healthy young mind active.
If you are interested in fostering / adopting our Bamboo please message us or call 718.474.0500 and ask for our Hospital Manager Julie. You can also reach out to his rescue team Redemption Rescues, Inc.. Help us find Bamboo's new home! @redemption_rescues
Meet our beautiful Felicity!
As you can see ...our sweet girl has been bred in her life. We don’t know how many litters this young dog has had in her three or so years , or where her puppies are, but we do know that it will never happen again. When Felicity first came to us, she was in serious need of rescue, and of emergency medical care, as she had a massive hole in her abdomen, as a direct result of being overbred.( a mammary gland had ruptured) Although she must have been in pain, right from the start, this special, happy girl has shown us nothing but love. Felicity is a friend to everyone she meets, and also enjoys her dog friends at the shelter. Forgiving, affectionate, playful, adorable....this little beauty has it all. Email email@example.com or come see our little beauty in person this weekend! #rbarishelter#weloveourdogs#adoptabledogsofnj#pitbulladvocates#nomorebreeding#spayandneuter#adoptashelterdog#nokillshelter#njnokillshelter#dogfriendly#adoptableshelterdogs 🐾❤️
