Sonny, rescued by Rescue Teamsters, was brought into the shelter, clearly suffering from gross neglect and hideous abuse.
He had such a severe case of imbedded collar that he was barely able to swallow or eat. The collar was so imbedded that it was necessary to have a vet surgically remove it. The wound was necrotic, maggot filled, inches deep, with sepsis underneath. It was incredibly dangerous and could have been life-threatening if it was not taken care of immediately. He was also extremely underweight, suffering from malnutrition. As if that were not enough, due to utter neglect, he tested heartworm positive on a very high level. None of this was divulged to us when we received the plea to rescue sweet boy Sonny. Imagine our heartbreak and horror. It was even more tragic once we met Sonny and witnessed his kind and loving personality, he really is the epitome of sweetness.
If we had heard about Sonny any later, we would probably not have been able to save him because he was on the euthanization list. Maybe you cannot change the entire world, but you can definitely change Sonny's world. Please continue to be a part of Sonny's journey and help us write a new and exciting chapter by donating to his care or sending him a gift from his wishlist today.
