Maya was a stray on a shelter euthanasia list. She had a bleeding tumor, kennel cough, was covered with fleas/ticks, malnourished, and was a senior to boot. She was flat out of options. A foster and Slumdog Rescue Crew (SRC) stepped up to save Maya. She made it out by the skin of her teeth, was taken to the vet, had that nasty tumor removed, and was put on antibiotics for kennel cough. She’s lavished in comfort and love while she heals. Before long she will receive the rest of her vet services and will be able to retire in peace with an adoptive family. HPAN paid $300 for Maya’s surgery and medicine.
Leo had been neglected and discarded at the animal shelter. His story touched the hearts of rescue individuals, and he ended up under the care of Slumdog Rescue Crew (SRC). He had a horrible case of Demodex mange, secondary yeast infection, was heartworm positive; the list goes on and on. When the vet finally gave SRC the okay to treat his heartworms, they reached out to us for help. Leo is on his way to a better life!
Lizzie is a 1.5 year old, terrier mix who was surrendered to Slumdog Rescue Crew (SRC) by her owner. When they arrived to pick up Lizzie, she was running around the property, unvaccinated and blood/infection oozing from open wounds. Her owner told them at the time that Lizzie did not have an eye. Once they were able to get Lizzie bathed, an infectious scab fell off the front of her eyelid exposing her damaged eye. Lizzie had not received treatment for this eye, nor her Demodex mange. She was riddled with fleas and ticks, and she had not been spayed and certainly not vaccinated. Lizzie had sat in this condition waiting on someone to help for a total of eight months. Lizzie has now been with SRC since the end of March. She has tested negative for Demodex mites. Her skin and hair have made a miraculous recovery.
Now, it is time for Lizzie to have her eye removal surgery and spay, which we were asked to sponsor. We were happy to help this wonderful dog, who is reported to love everyone she meets-cats, kids, and dogs included. SRC says that by meeting her, you would never know she has suffered an ounce of abuse. SRC looks forward to finding this special girl a fabulous home.
