A Christmas Eve Wish…

A Great Dane with a frail frame was found in the freezing rain on Dec 21 in Ontario. The details of each protruding bone told the story of the life of abuse and neglect that her soul had to endure. She is in need of help and cries out for your compassion today. Birch Haven Rescue and Rehabilitation Services (BHRR) a non-profit organization in Prescott, Ontario, was contacted by a good Samaritan that rescued this little angel. BHRR describes her condition as follows:

  • Emaciated – Body condition given 2 out of 10
  • Numerous infected wounds – four really bad
  • Frost bite and/or possible mange on ears – has numerous small pieces   missing
  • No chip to be found
  • Dehydrated
  • Hair loss over spine, tail, elbows *Scabs over many areas of her body *Tail had been broken
  • Hypothermic
  • Infested with fleas
  • Broken teeth
  • Overgrown nails
  • Unable to process food – kibble that had been given by angel who found her passed completely undigested through her body
  • Terrified

As I read through the comments on their Facebook page, I see they have a wish list and I pray some of our MDB readers could assist BHRR in order to help out this gentle pup.

BHRR’s Journey’s Santa ELF Wish list

  1. Ester C – she has collapsed pasterns
  2. She really needs money donations to her Vet Bills – they are almost at $2,200 and rising. You can call Kanata Animal Hospital directly at (613) 836-2848 or via PayPal or via email transfer to gwen@birchhaven.org
  3. Oatmeal Shampoo
  4. Blankets and Towels
  5.  Another Dog Bed – so that when we wash one for her wounds do ooze plus drain, she has another

For those seeking to drop off donations – Please drop by the Kanata Animal Hospital on 440 Hazeldean in Kanata Ontario. December 24th from 8 AM – Noon

BHRR was one of the rescues that stepped up to help Quebec and take some of the rescue dogs in need from the alleged puppy mill seizure this past September.  They took some of the special cases and continue to work with them in order for the pups to be able to find a forever home.  Please remember, small donations add up in a tremendous way. Even if you can’t help financially, you can lend a hand by sharing this blog post in order to reach others far and wide.
