While stopping for gas in the southernmost point of Texas, along the Mexico border, Amanda saw a little head peeking out from a ditch. As she approached, this scared, starving boy crawled to her to take a treat. He is emaciated, his body is is just skin covering bones. He is missing a toe and nail, he is bald, and he has huge masses on his body. But he is sweet and gentle and he knew this was the only chance to be saved. How many people must have turned their backs on him at this station? But being an independent rescuer herself, Amanda could not leave him behind! And Houston jumped right in her vehicle the first chance he got! So she began to work her social media and NYBC received multiple messages from followers asking to help. We have named him Houston and we promised Amanda that we would do whatever is necessary to help him and NYBC is committed to his well-being. Houston is now in a hospital in Texas where he is having diagnostic testing- x-rays, bloodwork, fecal, etc. Please help us give Houston the care and kindness he deserves.
