This poor stray, now named Pearson, was found after Stray Rescue received a call from a park maintenance worker. Upon arrival, we thought the worst. Pearson had obviously suffered through a very harsh Winter, and we thought he had succumbed to extreme malnourishment and neglect, curled up, and died.
Fortunately, this wasn't the case, and Pearson hadn't fully given up... but he was dangerously close. He was critically thin and dehydrated and, once he was taken to receive emergency care, they found that he wasn't even registering a temperature. Receiving constant veterinary care, we are hopeful that Pearson will pull through. Updates will be passed along as soon as they become available.
Unfortunately, Pearson will not be the last dog to suffer through this kind of neglect and be forced to scratch through a cold existence of starvation and lonesomeness. However, together we can continue to make vast improvements in these loving companion animal's lives.
If you are able, please click here to donate to The Stracks Fund and help ensure Pearson and other abused and neglected dogs are given the opportunity for a second chance. For the moment, that is the best way to offer help to Pearson. He, and others, deserve a life of warmth, love, and comfort. Make a difference. Save a life.
