Lovely was emaciated, completely bald, covered in oozing sores, and swollen all over, particularly in her legs and feet. As though she knew we were there to help, Lovely used her last vestiges of energy to lick the assessor's face and lean into her for comfort, before trying to take a few steps after her to the car. It was the last time she would be semi-aware and stand up to try to walk on her own. Lovely was let go in peace on the afternoon of May 24th, 2007.
From Lovely, came The Lovely Fund a fundraising plan to help get dogs like Lovely the help they need.
Currently Mason is in our program, neglected beyond comprehension it broke our hearts to see this senior in the shelter. His eyes completely swollen shut, missing hair, itching mess of allergies and covered in open sores. This boy was a mess but his heart was as clean, soft and warm as any we have ever seen. Mason is now recovering, his eyes are open (although we believe he is slightly blind) his hair is slowly starting to grow back and his temperament as solid as a rock.
Mason still has a long way to go but if you want to help Mason recover please donate to The Lovely Fund.
