Help Save Maggie

Meet Maggie, she is an extremely loving dog that is between 2-4 years old, and believed to be from the hound family.

She was rescued on September 16, 2018, she was literally on deaths door, her weight at time of rescue was 31lbs, she was 1 of 13 dogs at this home, had been locked in a cage with a male dog, and had recently given birth, unfortunately none of her puppies survived. She was covered in afterbirth, fleas, ticks, and maggots, and was unable to walk or stand. Her eyes were swollen shut, and her ears were filled with puss and maggots. 


Once she was found she was dewormed, de-ticked, de-flead, given baths in oatmeal, milk, and honey to soothe her inflamed skin. She was fed properly for the first time in her life and in the 3 weeks since being rescued she has gained 26lbs, weighing in at 57lbs!!


She has been exposed to the beach for the first time, tv, cats, cars, all of those everyday life things that our wonderful dogs experience, she is learning about for the first time. 

She is being adopted by a wonderful couple who instantly connected with her, and can't wait to bring her home and provide her with the care and love that she needs and deserves. 


On Friday October 5, 2018 Maggie went in to be spayed, while in surgery she went into shock, after investigating the vet found a foreign body in her stomach, which appears to be wire and nails. The wire and nails need to be removed but she is currently unable to go through a second surgery today, she is being given 24 hour care and they are hoping they will be able to remove the wire and nails in the next day or two, but for now we need to keep her under 24 hour care, which is costly, and we need to pay for her upcoming surgery as well.

We are asking you to please find it in your heart to donate to help save Maggie and provide her with the life that she truly deserves. While you're here please share this page across your social media platforms so we can reach as many people as possible. 


We are 100% volunteer based, we have no administration costs, and all money raised will go directly to Maggie's care, if for some reason there is any money left over after her care is completed that money will then be used for the care of the other dogs found with Maggie.
