When Hope For Paws is called to rescue a dog they move heaven and earth to save him or her. Dennis was no different.
“Dennis was abandoned on a bridge and was left to d.i.e. When a young man, Gabriel Sepulveda passed by on his skateboard, he saw Dennis and remembered watching the Hope For Paws video of Jordan, so he knew to call us,” wrote Eldad Hagar.
“It took Lisa Chiarelli and I two hours to get to the location, and what we saw was h.o.r.r.i.f.y.i.n.g. Dennis was on the ground, unable to move, and was covered with ticks.”
They rushed him to hospital and began cleaning him up. Lisa’s dog, Lola, was rushed to the hospital so she could donate blood for Dennis because he was suffering severe anemia. They worked hard to save him…..
“For the next 5 days Dennis was seen by neurologists, cardiologists, and internal medicine specialists, but all of this was not enough…” said Eldad. “Dennis was too far gone, and his body was shutting down.”
Dennis passed away shortly after. Rest in Peace, Dennis.
“Not all rescues have happy endings… it’s important to understand that! Dennis was neglected somewhere for a long time, and no one spoke for him. If you see an animal in need, please say something… do something,” Eldad pleads. “Please share so people will know to take action next time they see a case of neglect or abuse. Thank you, Eldad.”
