Pit Crew IL Rescue is an emergency medical rescue whose focus is on dog in need of critical medical attention due to neglect and/or abuse.  We are a small group of volunteers who dedicate ourselves to the needs each case brings in.


Mystic came into our rescue on August 23, 2017.  After a life of breeding she had been tied to a fence and left to die....and she almost did.  Found barely able to lift her head from weakness and infection she only had days left when the call came in.   We instantly got her to the ER where they began treatment immediately to get her stable.  At 28lbs our little one was weak, so weak she couldn't even lift her head for food.  

After 7 days in our emergency ER she was finally stable enough to be moved and she began her journey to IL thanks to one of our wonderful adopters, who is a nurse and could provide Mystic's needed treatment on the road.

Arriving in Chicago our team got right to work with her and they have been right by her side since.  Treating infections, parasites, an internal slug infestation, seizures, severe heartworm, mild pyometra, pneumonia and her first set of surgeries. 

After serious consultations with our team it had been decided that Mystic's next steps would be split in two for her safety.  Due to the extent of surgeries she needed it would be too dangerous to keep her under and do everything all at once.  It has taken her almost 2 months to completely heal from her first surgeries, her incisions would not heal up, especially her spay incision....maybe due to her ongoing skin issues??  Anyway, the last bit of her spay incision finally healed and we have scheduled her to go in for her next round of surgeries.  We are looking for sponsors to help this baby take one of her final steps to healing.

Her 2nd surgeries will consist of removing the teeth that her breeder fractured (a barbaric act they do to keep their stud from being bitten when forced to mate) and removing the remaining masses that cover her body. We will be sending biopsy samples of any of the suspicious masses removed out to the lab.  

Through everything Mystic has endured, her spirit has never broken.  She wants to be loved, she wants to survive, she wants her second chance. Mystic now knows that she matters...that she deserves love and comfort.

Can you help her get through this next set of surgeries?  Will you help sponsor her care?  She needs your help to get one step closer in healing from the years of horrific abuse she's suffered.
