Can we save Zena - a Senior Lab who needs us 02/11/2012
This beautiful purebred yellow lab was found lying on the side of the road in front of the Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends organizations facility.
She couldn't get up and was bleeding from the rectum so they thought she'd been hit by a car. But apparently she was a dump job! They've named her Zena and have stated that she is 'very old' and has arthritis. She also has a great deal of hair loss from biting herself due to a flea allergy. Can anyone explain to me how someone could have a dog this long, let it get in this condition and then just dump it! And don't tell me finances. Because if that's the reason there are several ways to turn you pet over to a place or an organization that will give it the required care. Anyway -- the good people at 911RUFF gave her Rimadyl for the arthritis, cleaned her up, and cooked her some chicken and noodles just so she would eat. And she did! And she's moving a bit better now. She will probably need to stay on an arthritis medication such as Rimadyl and may need some other medical attention to deal with the flea allergies and resulting woulds.
The Rescued Unwanted Furry Friends organization (aka: RUFF) happens to be the organization that I blogged about yesterday that is in danger of shutting down due to the lack of funding since the Gulf Oil Spill. They really did not need to have another needy dog sumped on them like this right now. We are desperately seeking a Senior Dog Rescue that can step in and help Zena get well and find a safe place to live out her remaining time. If you can help please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
