In South Carolina, ten-month-old Jagger had been curled up on a tarp in a trailer park just waiting to die. His owner decided the puppy’s bad case of mange was a valid reason to put an end to his life. When an advocate reached out to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for help, Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the all volunteer organization, sent a volunteer to rescue the pup:

“Message said that the owner wanted to euth the puppy due to mange,” wrote Stacey on the group’s Facebook page. “Due to his condition, missing fur, compromised immune system & living outside in the elements, we knew he wouldn’t survive long. There was snow just a few miles away.”

It wasn’t long before Jagger was rescued. He is now at the rescue’s partner veterinary hospital where he is receiving the treatment and care he needs and deserves. More dogs at that same trailer park need rescue also. Contact Rescue Dogs Rock NYC if you can help.

The most common cause of mange in dogs is exposure to another infected animal, as mites, responsible for the condition move from animal to animal. Read more about mange and how to manage the condition.

    God bless you for saving this little guy. You are heroes.
    The person who had this pup and the others doesn’t need to be having dogs. He obviously doesn’t know how to take care of them.

    This idiot of an owner is the one who should be euthanized for neglect and total stupidity. Once again, if Rescue Dogs Rock NYC had not come through this puppy would be dead – I cannot believe there are so many asshole humans in this country.
