When a chained dog in St. Louis, who had been living his life in someone’s backyard became ill, no one seemed to care. The dog was shutting down, and when he collapsed his owners placed him on a blanket and dragged him out to the street like trash.
Stray Rescue of St. Louis received the call about a dog dying on the side of the road. Volunteers rushed to the dog’s rescue, and within ten minutes the staff had loaded the old pup into their jeep and rushed him to the organization’s trauma center.
“Turns out, this old, decrepit dog is only about 5 years old. He was so dehydrated that his eyelids were stuck to his eyes and he couldn’t blink. His gums were bleeding because his mouth was so dry, he couldn’t swallow. And he has urine burns on his legs and back end. We gave him fluids, food, water, and love. Within minutes he was standing up and thanking us for caring about his life…,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.
Meet Archilles. He continues to receive the care and love he deserves. When he recovers he will be ready for adoption; Archilles will never suffer again.
“From the bottom of our hearts, we could never thank you enough for always stepping up and standing right by our side as we continue to be the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. We are asking for your help once again during these most trying and uncertain times for us all. Please stay safe and keep all the animals in your hearts. They need us all now more than ever.
