We were at the shelter to pull another senior when we heard another dachshund had just been surrendered, and her condition was one that broke our hearts in a new way that even we have never seen before.

The little girl we have named Renata is 14 years old, and was surrendered by her family with Parvo, likely when they grew tired of the bloody diarrhea that she had as part of her condition which was completely preventable.  The fact that she was 14 and suffering from Parvo, which is often fatal, told the story that for her entire life, Renata had never been vaccinated, which likely meant she had never had any vet care at all.

She was in bad shape and we had no time to spare to give her every chance we could to survive.  Our transport scooped her up, and headed for Broward to LeadER Animal Hospital where Renata was whisked right to the back and started on treatment and sadly put in isolation due to her condition. 

After she was stabilized she was able to be examined further and her condition backed up our theory that Renata had been neglected her entire life as she is covered in mammary tumors and has a heart murmur which had also gone un-treated.

We are not sure if we found her in time, but we have to give her a chance...she deserves the chance that she has never had before.  A chance to have the love and family that every doxie deserves and she has been denied her entire life.

You have given us to much in these last few weeks, do you, our DRSF community have it in you to make one more miracle for a little girl so deserving of one?

As always, every dollar counts toward the funding finish line and even if you are not able to donate for Renata, we still invite you to share her story and/or leave a comment as you never know whose heart you will touch <3 Renata sends her love and thanks for giving her a chance.....
