Three bonded seniors surrendered together at height of summer heat and slated to die

Three bonded seniors watch everyone coming and going by their kennel enclosure; they most likely are hoping their family is coming back to get them. What they don’t know nor can they understand is they were all surrendered to the Carson Animal Care Center in California on Saturday. No reason has been offered why the three seniors were no longer wanted, but does any excuse it make a difference to these dogs if their lives are soon snuffed away? The shelter is full, it is very hot, and they need help quickly to survive.

Injured dogs just meet and find solace in each other at vet office

Two injured dogs became immediate friends and found comfort in each other at a veterinarian’s office in New York City at their very first meeting. Rescuers had never seen two dogs who had endured such neglect and agony respond to one another with such apparent love and comfort.

“They ran into each other at the vet and they would not leave one another’s side. The purity and innocence that live in these two is commendable. They made it…and now they have each other. Little Valentine’s body is still sore and raw but he is coming along; the pain medication is working and he is in way better spirits,” Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs posted on their Facebook page Wednesday morning updating advocates about the condition of two dogs dubbed Valentine and Moose.  Valentine and Moose

It started with the rescue of  five-year-old Moose late last week who was saved from a high-kill rural shelter that does not allow photos or videos enabling advocates to help these dogs find homes. With Moose’s tragic plight, volunteers were notified that his kennel mate attacked him while eating. Moose did not bite back or even growl; he sat there and took it. As he was being led through the shelter, a pregnant dog lunged and growled at him, and he only offered her his belly.

“He may look rough but he is as gentle and kind as they get, therapy dog type. Clearly a loser once cropped his ears so badly and as a result he has a raging skin ear infection, imagine someone taking scissors to your velvety floppy ears. He has really bad sores, an infection on his bum, he is covered in fleas, has an eye and skin infection.”Valentine and Moose 2

Once he arrived at the vet, he was diagnosed with a severe skin condition, an out of control ear infection and  polyps all over his body, especially on his back end. His toe nails are infected, and he was covered in flea residue. Most disturbing was that most of his teeth were totally rotted out which is uncommon for his young age; he will require surgery for this.  Described as a “low rider pit,” Moose who has a solid disposition despite all he has endured. He is described as an “absolute joy and honor to be around, truly an easy going guy.” Moose will be moving to a foster home for care and will be back and forth at the vet for treatment. Please note three more dogs were rescued that day from that same shelter.

And then came the  rescue of a 10-week-old puppy on Monday. When the organization posted his heartbreaking photo, it appeared as if the defenseless little pup’s face had been shredding away. He had been found wandering the streets in horrific condition, and for days he sat at a high-kill shelter and was scheduled to be euthanized. The rescue organization immediately put out a plea for help:Valentine the puppy

“It sounds like he has some kind of respiratory condition (unfortunately most dogs in the shelter end up with these respiratory infections). He has something that looks like a burn on his face, but may be some kind of severe mange or severe skin infection. His stomach is also raw and has the same bloodied scabs all over it. It looks like the skin was peeled away from his belly. He cries out in pain when anyone tries to touch him. We won’t know exactly what is going on until we are able get him to a vet. We cannot imagine the pain and discomfort he must be in. Please help us pull Sweet Valentine. We would like to save Valentine today and offer his the medical support he needs to get through this.”

And now the two injured dogs have met and their compassion to each other gives all of us a moment to pause and reflect how absolutely perfect is the description that dogs are our best friends – and not only to humans, but to each other in the most crucial times of their lives.
