Major came to us with such severe Demodex Mange that we could not tell what breed he was. Unable to open his eyes, and with skin cracked and bleeding, Major was in agony … a prisoner in his own body. The extreme neglect he suffered would have led to death, but we stepped in with intense medical treatment and weeks of loving rehabilitation. We saved his life.
Phoenix was brought to us emaciated and suffering from a large mass on her abdomen … the results of untreated hookworms and being bred over and over. A simple dewormer would have healed her starvation. Instead, her owners had left her to suffer and starve, because she could no longer produce puppies for them to sell. “Just take her, she is just going to die anyway,” they said. But we didn’t let that happen. We treated her for worms and, once she gained weight, removed the benign mass to return her to health.
Update on Major
We are happy to inform you that Major is doing VERY well! He enjoys going on trips and playing fetch with his foster mom, Chelsea. Additionally, justice is being served! Major’s previous owner is currently under investigation and will likely face charges.
Meet Mango who was just brought to us by Tampa Fire Rescue Station 4 who found her on Mango Road. It appears that Mango is very thin and was in a horrible dog fight. Our shelter veterinarians are currently determining the best course of medical treatment and care. Make sure to keep up with us on our social media platforms for updates.
Meet Sugar, she was brought to us as a stray – likely dumped on the streets by her previous owners. We were heartbroken by her appearance, it looked as if she had never seen a day of love her in life. Now Sugar has a loving forever home and, as you can see, she loves to play with her mom, Susan and her 3 dog brothers too!
Zoey & Zena
Meet Zoey & Zena, 6 month old puppies found in a dumpster crying, covered in motor oil. Zoey even had a BB gun pellet lodged in her lower right jaw. Who could do such a thing to these poor sweet animals?!
