Saving the Diamonds in the Ruff In early October, One of A Kind Pet Rescue staff and volunteers traveled to rural Ohio to rescue more than 50 dogs from a severe hoarding situation.
A Good Samaritan in Southern Ohio started taking in stray dogs that had been “dropped off” at their residence. Before they knew it, they were in over their head without manpower or finances to care for the dogs. Then, true disaster struck when some of these dogs contracted sarcoptic mange and infected all the dogs in his care. Imagine the worst bug bite you’ve ever received: you itch it, you scratch it and soon you’ve got an open sore. Now, multiply this by about 200 and that is what these 45 dogs are experiencing.
The good news is that sarcoptic mange is treatable. It takes expensive medicine, medicated baths, high-quality nutritional supplements and a lot of extra manpower hours to care and heal these beautiful little souls.
We're looking for support to offset the costs associated with the care of these pets. Please consider donating... any amount is greatly appreciated!
