UPDATE 10/25/2017 Rain received her second round of heartworm treatment. Her babies, Beau and Meadow, have been safely transported to NYBC and Meadow has been adopted already. Rain is a lovely, gracious and very sweet girl that needs a family to call her own.
She was named Rain because of the extreme weather and downpours this new mommy has endured by being trapped on a chain with no shelter while trying to nurse her babies. This emergency rescue by our dedicated colleague and friend came to us and we need your help to help this emaciated mother and 2 babies infested with ticks and starving! This new momma was protective as her rescuer approached, but because of gentle persistence and patience, she trusted her new friend and allowed her to rescue her 2 young babies and herself. She spent the night at her rescuers house and this family is now receiving medical treatment. Rain is severely anemic and has tested positive for heartworm and erhlichia and will start treatment as soon as she is cleared. We will update as we receive info.
