Over the holiday weekend, Sauget, IL Police were alerted to a dog in severe neglect. His owner says she lost her job and couldn’t take care of it. So instead of surrendering the dog to the Humane Society or one of umpteen rescue groups like most intelligent, compassionate people would do, she decided to let it suffer horribly.
Thankfully, Aaron has been taken into loving hands by Hope Rescues. Unfortunately, he is in really bad shape. Not only was he severely malnourished, he has heartworms and a severe case of a skin disease called mange. His conditions are treatable, but he has a long road to recovery and it’s going to be expensive.
My Beagle, Sophia was emaciated and near death when I found her 7 years ago. One vet didn’t think she would make it, but I know dogs are more resilient than most believe and I never gave up on her. We can’t give up on Aaron either. I am personally begging you to visit hoperescues.com . Scroll down to read Aaron’s story and to donate whatever you can to help him survive this inexcusable abuse.
