DONATIONS NEEDED FOR VETERINARY CARE

Today, our heartbroken volunteers gave a teary welcome to Charlotte, a 7 year old senior mastiff. The family to whom loyal Charlotte gave the best years of her life, bred her one last time, kept the puppies, and gave her away for free online. The family that took her, simply put her out in the backyard, with no intent of bringing her inside, even over the cold winter ahead. One of our fosters immediately stepped up, to make sure that Charlotte spends the winter in a warm soft bed indoors, and never again knows anything but love and respect.

This afternoon when Charlotte arrived, we were horrified by the condition that she arrived in. As we had expected, she was covered in fleas, and had calluses from too many nights spent on a hard surface. We did not expect hair loss and puncture wounds from what we are told was likely a coyote attack, or a giant mass so heavy that it almost touched the ground and swung painfully back and forth whenever she walked. The mass had been growing for months to years and had never been examined by a vet. We immediately took Charlotte to our vet to have her needs assessed and to make sure that she spends the last years of her life as comfortable as possible.Through the whole ordeal, Charlotte was nothing but sweet, craving affection and attention from everyone who would notice her.

Our rescue has recently been burdened by many veterinary bills, however we could not turn sweet Charlotte away from rescue. Please consider making a donation to help us pay for her veterinary care.  We will post and update with diagnoses and estimates as soon as possible.
