We can’t look away at a helpless senior whose owner dropped her at a high-kill Texas animal shelter with a huge tumor. For eight years little Doris had been loyal to her family; tragically her owner never returned the respect.
And here Doris was nearly forced to face her nightmarish reality; that is until animal advocates asked Rescue Dogs Rock NYC to intervene and save the seven pound Chihuahua dragging a melon sized tumor growing out from her belly. She had no where to turn – an emaciated, dehydrated and anemic dog with a host full of medical problems.
“She has so many strikes against her, but we will do whatever we can to help Doris and see her through all of her medical needs,” the organization’s co-founder Stacey Silverstein wrote on Facebook. “She’s eight-years-old, suffers from Tick Bourne disease and is heart worm positive, but her life counts.”
To help Doris with her medical care and surgery, go to:
