Noah's Work:  Helping the Helpless

CASE HISTORIES OF CANINE VICTIMS

RAGTAG

RAGTAG      One of seven young dogs living in a vacant lot in an old sofa amid other furniture which had been discarded.  The lot was next door to the home of the people who owned the mother   These people would not give the dogs to us as puppies at which time we would have had a chance at  finding them homes.  They grew up semi-wild.  The one pictured was obviously sick with a systemic disease.   We tried to befriend the dogs but they were too wild.  We fed all of them, kept water available, improved their shelter and even dropped antibiotic tablets into the food of the one pictured while we worked to get them into proper care. 

WOUNDED

 

INFECTION ON DOG ATTACKED BY ANOTHER DOG
When we were called to the home of this dog, we were appalled to find the wounds you see in the photo.  They were inflicted by a notoriously aggresssive neighborhood dog and had been unattended for several days.  The wounds were full of maggots.  The family that owned the dog received money from the neighbor whose dog had attacked Chi Chi but they refused to use the money to treat the dog.  They preferred to forfeit the dog.

This story had a happy ending.  Chi Chi was adopted by the veterinarian who treated him.  We were thrilled to have such a happy solution.  We could never have raised enough money for the treatment of this animal and would not have had a home for her if we had  healed her

WHITE PUPPIES WITH SARCOPTIC MANGE
A white puppy with an advanced case of sarcoptic mange was tethered outside our door one morning..  A trip to the veterinarian confirmed the condition.  Two more white puppies with mange and obviously from the same litter were tethered outside our door on subsequent days.  They were sad-eyed pups, obviously not feeling well or happy.
