In the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, two bonded, stray Labrador retrievers struggled daily to stay alive. Everyday, they would scavenge the area looking for food, but slowly their health continued to deteriorate. And if their plight wasn’t devastating enough, just a few days ago, one of the dogs had been struck by a vehicle. Her leg was broken, and the future of the two dogs looked grim.
Animal advocates had no intentions of giving up, and social media quickly joined together sharing the heartbreaking photos and details of the two dogs.
“Skeletal girl comes and goes everyday seeking shelter and food with her only friend. She was ran [sic] over a few days ago, now she has a broken leg. Slowly each part of her being is deteriorating. Her friend not too far behind. This bonded pair desperately need rescue and foster…”
One day later, Lucky Lab Rescue and Adoption stepped forward to help. The yellow Lab has been named Grace; her partner has been named Penelope. Grace remains hospitalized on pain medication and antibiotics. Her leg is fractured in three places and surgeons are currently weighing their options.
Sadly, Grace also has a severe skin infection and a wound so serious had become deeply infected. She is emaciated and is being fed slowly. In addition, she was infected with fleas and ticks and has received a bath to make her more comfortable.
Fortunately, Penelope is not as critical as Grace, but is also at the hospital.
The rescue organization is also looking for a foster in TEXAS for them. If you can help save their lives please message
