Skyler is a dog we rescued of the streets. We are trying to get her the care, medication love and attention she desperately needs.
Skyler is a dog we rescued. She was walking with a homeless man that was screaming at her and had a tight nylon rope wrapped around her neck. We pleaded with the man and struggled to at least try and get the rope off her neck. He couldn't even provide us with the dog's name giving us three different answers each time we asked. She was emaciated. You only felt bones. We took the dog into our yard and she quickly found her way to the water bowl of our dogs refusing to leave the water without almost finishing the whole bowl. We then reluctantly decided to return her back outside to the man waiting at the gate. I could see the fear in Sky's eyes for the man as she tried hiding away from him behind my mom. I then said, "How much do you want for her?". He immediately replied without hesitation "R100 would be good". I gave him the R100 and off he went without even saying goodbye to the dog.
We went inside with Skyler and immediately got her in the bath, washing her three times but still the water was pitch black with all the dirt and sand. Her neck and body tick and flea infested we went to the vet to get her some tick medication as well as some worm medication. She seems a lot happier but she still needs a vet checkup and lots of food to get her back to her old self. As this was unexpected, the necessary costs are a bit much for now.
We would like to raise about R4000 for covering some vet costs and food costs and maybe some more medicine in the months to come to keep her tick, flea and worm free.
Reaching my target will mean that Skyler will be back in good health and will stay that way. She will have the care and love that she deserves
All funds will be used for Vet expenses. If any is left, it will be used for monthly flea, tick and deworming medication as well as a well balanced healthy diet to get her back in shape.
Funds raised will be paid into my bank account.
