This Giving Tuesday, donations are being MATCHED to support emergency medical care for animals like Rose!
When we first met Rose, it looked as if the 5-month-old puppy had turned to stone 💔 She had a horrific case of mange, causing her to lose all of her fur and making her skin incredibly dry, thick, itchy, and painful. Her ears were infected and one eye had swollen shut. With a case this severe, her prognosis was guarded – she was in a fight for her life and needed emergency intervention.
Rose’s treatment included warm, medicated baths three times a week, daily antibiotics, and ear drops twice a day. She had to wear a warm coat to protect her bare skin from the cold November air. With the support of our veterinary team and her dedicated foster family, Rose’s condition slowly but surely began to improve. Her fur started to return along with her playful puppy personality. With each visit, our medical team grew more and more hopeful that she could beat this.
The Rose we see today is unrecognizable from the somber pup we met in October. She will still need more treatment before she is medically cleared for adoption, but she is thriving in her foster home, racing around the backyard collecting sticks and playing keep away. All thanks to the support of people like you.
Whether you can spare $5 or $50, your gift will go twice as far today! Donations will be generously matched by our amazing friend Virginia Kress. With so much uncertainty in the world, your donation ensures we are always able to step up when there’s an animal in need. Thank you so much!
