Exclamation 17 Sled Dogs Seized!!



Quote:
Ohio: 17 Starved Sled Dogs ALL HW+

STARVED SLED DOGS NEED HELP!

About 19 dogs nearly starved to death, and now, ALL ARE HEARTWORM POSITIVE!

Please find it in your heart to help fund the heartworm treatment of these dogs. Even at the discount being given the amount will be astronomical, and then they all must be altered.

Siberian Huskies, Alaskan Huskies, Malamutes and mixes of these northern breeds need your help!

19 dogs were taken from a sled dog racer's home in Mt.Gillead, Morrow County, Ohio.

The owner had left the dogs in the care of a relative while he sought work out west. The caretakers stopped feeding the dogs,
so they are in extremely emaciated condition.

Ohio Malamute rescue took five dogs. A Mt. Gilead OH group took two (one died).

NW OHIO SIBERIAN HUSKY RESCUE has stepped in to try to help the rest. A second young one died.

The very kind dog warden has worked very hard to help us save these dogs.

On top of their starved condition, all are heartworm positive!

One dog is blind and we need help to find a good place for him. Please contact me with ideas. He is very sweet and not dog aggressive. The only place I have for him is my own sled dog kennel and this is not a good situation for a blind dog.

A truly wonderful person, AKC show judge XXXXXXXXXXXXX, Former Malamute breeder, has a vet who has offered discount heartworm treatment. Seven-Eight dogs will be transported there on Monday. We are in desperate need of donations to cover the vet work on these dogs. After heartworm treatement they will also need to be spayed and neutered.

Email Nancy XXXXX with any questions.
Pictures available. [email protected] (@powersupply.net)


*DONATIONS ACCEPTED BY CREDIT CARD, BANK DEBIT CARD, PAY PAL, & CHECKS CAN BE MAILED*


PAY PAL donations:
NW Ohio Siberian Husky Rescue address is:

NWOHIO SIBE RESCUE

Thanks to those who have taken dogs, transported them and provided large amounts of food for these poor starving dogs.

Now they need financial help to get them treated for heartworm. They have been through so much losing their owner to moving away for work out of state, then not being properly cared for by the person left in charge for whatever reason that was, possibly not being physically able to do all the necessary work. These poor dogs deserve to get treated for heartworm and have a chance at a happy life.
I know Nancy and will be giving her a jingle to see if any of the dogs could perhaps be transported out here. She's only about 6-8 hours from me.

I spoke with Nancy tonight and they really need donations. After all the dogs finish their in-house veterinary treatments, I might be taking one or two of the older ones. I told her I need them to be dog friendly, because my dogs all free run together 24/7. Everyone cross your paws for these dogs!

If anyone would like to donate directly to the veterinary clinics that are treating these dogs, please private message me and I'll give you the addresses.

Nancy said she'll send me pictures as soon as she can, and I'll be sure to post them here!

I woke up to photos in my inbox. I might take Zoey and/or Cuddles. They appear to be the oldest, Nancy said. I'll post more photos when I get them. I resized the images so they would be easier to post. On the enlarged versions I originally got, you can see on Cuddles' ears how eaten by flies they are.

The really grassy photos of Cuddles and Zoey are where they were originally seized from. No wonder they got heartworms! Look how high that grass is, I bet they were being eaten alive by bugs.
