Skittles is a little pug mix that found herself on death row at the Arlington TX animal shelter. She wasn't even given a chance at adoption because she was pregnant. We aren't sure why the shelter would rather immediately kill her and her unborn babies, but they were set to do it if a rescue didn't step up. Our best guess is they didn't want the expense of dealing with babies or they just figured no one would adopt her because she was pregnant... who knows how the people in charge at these places use what they call logic to determine who gets a chance at life. It's not just this shelter; it's most of them.
Anyway, with the help of a local Saint Bernard Rescue group - yes, I did say saint group - we were able to get this little girl - all 8 lbs of her - out on Tuesday and she had her babies Wednesday. Thank goodness we got her out before she had her babies in that shelter.
We learned today that Skittles has pneumonia and the vet wanted to charge us over $1000 before starting any kind of treatment. Thankfully our saintly rescuer is a vet tech so she knows what to do. Currently Skittles is receiving fluids, breathing treatments and is on Baytril. We have also prepared to bottle feed the babies. In addition to pneumonia, Skittles is dehydrated and very lethargic, with a less than satisfactory appetite.

She will be going to a wonderful vet in OKC and with all the medical supplies needed to continue her care we need your help to raise funds.
No amount is too small, remember, every penny helps us help this little family.

Please share her story and this fundraising event.
