Irina’s coat had once been brown; that is of course when she had a coat. After months and months of mange which turned into long time neglect, Irina’s skin had hardened like cement. It didn’t matter anymore because the animal shelter in South Texas doesn’t have the funds to help the dogs. And there they all wait; the hopeless, the sick and the scared. So many injured dogs are thrown together, and all are at the mercy of the person who signs their death sentences if no one comes to claim them.
“Irina (the brown dog) was brought to our attention due to her severe medical condition,” Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC posted on the group’s Facebook page Sunday morning. “She is hairless, weak, covered in mange with a badly injured leg.”
If Irina was to have a chance to survive, she would need life saving medical care, and Stacey agreed. But, the other dogs in the kennel needed help as well, and Stacey couldn’t leave them behind as they were all clearly suffering from various medical issues.
“Just look at all those scared faces. We have committed to helping these angels. We cannot stand by and allow them to suffer anymore,” Stacey explained.
It is expected the veterinarian care for these dogs will be extremely expensive as they are all very ill. Can you help?
