URGENT: Saving Marmaduke

Hello, my name is Marmaduke, I am a Great Dane. A long time ago I had someone who loved me and fed me. Then I was chained in a yard with no bed, no one fed me, I started to feel bad, I was hungry all the time and now I am really skinny and sad. I can’t see very well any more, and one of my legs just doesn’t seem to work right.

Every night I dream of being with someone who loves me again and nice soft bed to sleep in and food every day, what a marvelous life that would be!

Marmaduke, a one and a half year old male Great Dane, was found by a volunteer teacher in Honduras outside a small village. He was living outside, his owners had stopped feeding and caring for him so the volunteer took him in. 

He has eye infections in both eyes, a severe bacterial infection, he is underweight and he is missing several toes on one of his feet. In addition, one of his back legs is paralyzed from a rabies vaccination given improperly. 

We need to raise enough money to transport him to the US (Miami) so we can get him the medical attention he needs. We have a foster home lined up with medical experience. We need to get him here quickly as the volunteer is flying home and has no one to take care of him in Honduras.

All donations will go towards his flight home and any extra will be put towards his vet bills and any medication needed once he arrives to his new home.

Please help SWGDR get this sweet boy home so he can get the medical attention he needs. This is urgent and time sensitive so please donate if you can.

Marmy is safe and sound with his foster family but he still needs your help! His back leg is paralyzed, causing him to drag his foot and the wound is pretty bad. We are not sure yet what the outcome will be. He may need physical therapy, surgery, or both but either way we need to continue to raise money to cover his medical expenses.

Please DONATE and SHARE this post to help us get Marmy's story out there! If you can give a little to help this sweet boy live the life he deserves please do so. Ever amount will make a difference.

Marmaduke has visited the vet, he is currently being treated for a bacterial infection in his foot (due to his leg paralysis) and a few parasites. He is now stable and much more comfortable in his new temporary foster home in Honduras and will soon be healthy enough to travel to the US.

We still need to get this boy to Florida where we can continue to provide him with the medical care he so desperately needs as well as get him established in a more permanent home. If you can give a little or a lot please do, every dollar will make a difference in this sweet dogs life. $5, $10, $15 anything will help. PLEASE CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO DONATE and learn more about Marmaduke's story.

Marmaduke has a long journey ahead of him but knowing that he has support from all around the world makes such a difference! Thank you all for your support and big sloppy kisses from Marmy!
