Today on the holy holiday of the Epiphany, commonly known as Three Kings’ Day, we were asked if we could help an abandoned female pitbull that is infested with ticks. Sadly she was dumped in front of the Humacao animal shelter which is an active kill shelter. Luckily for her, now named Jezebel, the shelter is closed because of the holiday observation. She would surely have been euthanized if it was a regular work day. Jezebel has ticks feeding and embedded in all parts of her body. There are 100s of parasites sucking her blood and probably infecting her with any one or more tick borne diseases such as erhlichia. Our dear colleague in rescue, Ivelisse, made sure that Jezebel was rescued off the street in front of the kill shelter and along with her, two other sad dogs were saved and 2 orphaned babies. They were all living among trash and refuse, trying to find food and shelter. Please, we beg for your support to help this unlikely bunch of desperate dogs just wanting to be loved and safe. And although it is a holiday, our veterinary colleague said yes to opening the hospital so that they could all be accepted and begin treatment. Please donate to Jezebel’s emergency medical treatment and care. We will update the other dogs later today as we receive more details.
