Rudy and Janessa don’t expect much for Christmas. All they hope for is to possibly sleep one night in peace, without fleas eating them alive. To know what it feels like to have skin that is not dry and itchy from fleas gnawing on them day and night. Rudy’s skin is so eaten up that he needs to be shaved. Their Christmas dream is simply to eat some food. Is that too much to ask? They are both emaciated, dehydrated and full of parasites.  Rudy is anemic as well. Yet, both are very sweet. They are not yet trusting, nor should they be. All they’ve known thus far in their young lives is starvation, outside living (in rain, storms, intolerable heat and cold), neglect, little bodies void of nourishment and water, full of parasites. Little Janessa, who is a 3-4 yr old Chihuahua/Pug mix, is pregnant. They both need spay/neuter. Baby Rudy, a 1-2 yr old Dachshund, is heartworm positive. Their condition is heartwrenching, to say the least. Their first vet appointment was over $500. In addition to their multiple, serious medical needs, Janessa’s puppies will need care, too, when they are born. They aren’t hoping for much this Christmas. Humans have done nothing but bring them misery and cruelty so far. Will you help us show them the good side of humanity? That there are people who will feed them and rid them of those nasty fleas? That they do deserve to know love and kindness? That gentle hands on their healed skin feels really great? They are inside now for the first time in their lives. Please help us give these two precious babies the gift of life this season. Life without fleas or starvation or heart worms or parasites. Life with food, warmth, comfort, love and more love. They thank you for any donation. They are also most deserving of some of us perhaps foregoing some of our human gift exchanges in order to just get these two to a basic, humane level of existence. Thank you for helping us turn their lives around!
