Willow: The Face of Hopelessness, Abuse and Neglect

  1. 1. WILLOW:THE FACE OF HOPELESSNESS, ABUSE AND NEGLECTBY: REBECCA YOUNG<br />
  2. 2. Willow was an owner surrender to our local shelter. She had been neglected and then thrown away.<br />
  3. 3. When I saw her there I knew I had to fightfor her because no one else ever had.<br />
  4. 4. I posted her sad story on the internet and within an hour I heard back from Mariah’s Promise, a pit bull rescue in Colorado.<br />
  5. 5. They said they would take her into their rescue. I immediately emailed and called the shelter to let them know she had a rescue. She was in the rotation to be euthanized the next morning – I hoped I was in time.<br />
  6. 6. I got an email back saying I was in time – she wouldn’t be euthanized. I was there the next morning to pull her. When they brought her to me, wrapped in a towel, she wagged her tail when she saw me, as if she knew I was there to save her.<br />
  7. 7. She went straight to the vets office. <br />
  8. 8. She is dehydrated, has demadex mange, is emaciated, has pneumonia and is full of hook and round worms. Her gums are snow white, caused by the worms and being anemic.<br />
  9. 9. She is covered in mange, flaky skin and scabs.<br />
  10. 10.
  11. 11. Her legs are swollen from the irritation from the mange.<br />
  12. 12. Willow is at Airline Animal Health – Surgery with Dr. Daniel Core taking care of her. <br />
  13. 13. She is a very sick girl and needs to get a lot better before she can fly to Colorado.<br />
  14. 14. She has a strong will to live and I want to do everything I can to help her do just that. <br />
  15. 15. She deserves the chance to see that all people aren’t cruel, that she deserves to be loved.<br />
  16. 16. She needs x-rays, iv’s, antibiotics and a blood transfusion to start with. She will then need to be treated for the mange. Estimated cost for everything is around $1,000.<br />
  17. 17. I am begging for donations to help Willow. Her life so far has been a miserable experience. Please help me help her see that she is worth something, that she’s not the piece of trash her owners thought she was. <br />
  18. 18. If you would like to make a donation to Willow you can mail a check to Airline Animal Health-Surgery<br />2633 Viking Dr.<br />Bossier City, LA 71111<br /> You can call in a credit card to 318-746-6465<br />You can use our paypal at www.animalwelfareinc.org<br />
