5/8/2019 With deep sadness, we have to announce the passing of brave Elio. Elio passed in Melissa’s loving arms.
The neglect and lack of basic care for too long was far too much for Elio to overcome.
Melissa was called late at night to let her know that Elio was failing. She rushed to be by his side and to tell him how loved he was from all over the world.
We choose to believe that Elio waited for the day he was rescued for he knew that their was kindness and compassion out there and oe day he would be showered with love. We thank you all of you for your prayers and support.
Elio left this world with a family that believes that all beings deserve respect and a gentle hand.
Run like puppy again, Elio. Play with the angels. You are loved.
Heartbreaking! How did he get so bad? Melissa received photos of a dog lying in the dirt, chained, clearly skin and bones. She was told that the locals were voting on were they’re going to dump his body. BUT HE IS STILL ALIVE! Melissa begged for them to keep him safe until she was able to retrieve him. The person that contacted Melissa took him home overnight to keep him safe, so he wouldn’t be alone. He is blind and scared, he can barley walk. Melissa is on her way to bring him to the hospital. Please pray for Elio and donate to his emergency medical treatment.
