Young Lab surrendered to shelter wearing t-shirt to soothe her pain

Just one-year-old, and MaryJane suffers from a severe case of demodex. When surrendered by her former owners, the friendly Labrador retriever wore a white t-shirt – hopefully one of the family members had dressed her to protect her delicate and painful skin infection. Why she wasn’t treated by a veterinarian remains a tragic mystery, but most likely led to the young dog having been surrendered to the Miami-Dade Animal Services on Wednesday.

According to MaryJane’s veterinary report upon intake at the shelter, the dog suffers from alopecia on her face and body with dry skin over her entire trunk area. At this time, she has been started on antibiotics, and it is recommended a rescue or an adopter followup at a licensed veterinarian. A Facebook page for this dog can be found here. Advocates have been pledging funds to help an approved rescue organization with the anticipated  costs of medical treatments

    At least they turned her into the shelter instead of throwing her into the street! It’s really interesting they take their kids to the doctor as needed and get their medicine! A dog is also a part of your family if they need care and medicine then you get it! Instead some humans throw away their kids! They don’t want to spend money on them! So they end up at the shelter or worse!

    WHY didn’t the shelter question these so called ‘owners’ the reason MaryJane was denied vet care? Probably because they did not bother to take any sort of care to prevent this treatable disease. MaryJane deserved MUCH better just to be dressed in a T-shirt. I hope she gets a safe loving home –
