    Default Asbury

    I was part of something amazing today. I picked up an emergency rescue for MABR. I got a call asking if I was available to do this, it was a real emergency. This man was driving to work through Asbury Park and spotted a dog on the side of the road. He pulled over and she came to him. He called his wife, who called her sister, who called Mid Atlantic Bulldog Rescue. Then Mid Atlantic called me. The man was willing to meet me halfway so I met him at PNC Arts center.

    When I got there my heart broke. I have seen a lot of mistreated animals in my life but never anything like this. I was amazed that all those bones were capable of breathing at all. She was obviously used as a breeding machine. Her teeth have been filed completely down. Her eyes were cloudy and crusty. Her nails were so long they curled under. Her footpads are bruised, misshaped, blistered and infected. Her teats are so long and swollen that they almost drag on the ground. When I say swollen I'm not exaggerating. One of them is as thick as my sons wrist. They are still leaking. She also has some vaginal bleeding.

    I rushed her from Holmdel to Abby's vet. The director himself is treating her. They ran a CBC, results will come in tomorrow. She tested negative for parvo, they think she has pyo. She is in the hospital tonight on IV fluids for dehydration and IV antibiotics just in case there is an underlying infection somewhere.

    When she is well enough to leave the hospital she will come stay with me as a foster for a little while until she is stronger. We've named her Asbury and for all she's been through she is just the sweetest thing. She slept with her head in my son's lap for the entire hour long ride to the vets office.

    These were taken at the hospital tonight.

    There is a special place in hell for people who treat animals like this.

    Bless you!! And yes, Tom and I were lucky enough to be asked to become directors of ROEB at the beginning of this year. So we see EVERY dog that might come into rescue and the ones that make it into rescue. We also get to find out why and how they come to us. The longer I am involved in rescue the more I realise that a lot of humans just SUCK!!! :crying:

    You were her Angel .....

    We just got home a little while ago Roe. Spent hours at the vet waiting for news on her condition and working out treatment plans. Besides, you had a cake to buy!

    That poor girl. But thank God for you and for that man who stopped and took action when he saw her on the street. I pray she will get well. It sounds like she's in good hands right now.

    Yeah. Some of them really do! And some of them should be taken out back and tied to a fence! (and believe me, tied to a fence was NOT my first choice of words.. this is a family forum so I cleaned it up a little)

    I wish more people would open their hearts and homes to fosters. All it takes is a little time and a lot of love. All it costs is a couple of extra cups of food each day. Vet bills and even transportation costs are covered by the rescue organization. I just don't understand why more people don't do it. I read somewhere that for every 20 adoption applications, only 1 of them is willing to foster.

    Damn.. I wish you lived in Ohio. All our foster families are full exept one. Every time I think I have a good bunch of fosters all up and ready, we get a rush of bullies and we are full again. Without fosters to take in these bullies we can go nowhere.

    Did ya ever thing about moving again .......?????

    Never considered Ohio but I was sooo close to moving out near Pittsburgh with the rest of my family. But then I fell in love with this house. If I'd known I was going to get laid off a month after moving in, I'd probably be partying in the parking lot at Hines Field right now
