Saving Margarita

Urgent help needed for Margarita!

We received a call for an emergency rescue of a very pregnant girl who was emaciated and in danger.  She was in a stockade type pen, scared, hungry, thirsty and alone.  Her hip bones jutting out and skin hanging loose around her neck and her belly very distended.  We told them we would take her if they could safely remove her from the situation.

Campaign Details

With the help of several rescuers, she was safely removed, got emergency vet care from Dr. Juan who determined that she is severely malnourished, emaciated, and NOT pregnant but has tick born disease. That full belly we saw in the original pictures was likely a belly full of worms. After over-nighting after vet care and transported to San Diego, she was transferred to our hands this evening. She is now on her way home to Daphneyland with Momma Dawn. Please welcome , ????. Many thanks to Nancy Goodwin, Brenda Waldrop and the entire team that made this rescue happen!

    WOW!   We reached 100% of our goal and will be able to provide Margarita with the basic vet care she needs.  

    Margarita is settling in and is undergoing nutrition therapy, and eating like a wolf! Her daily dose of meds for erlichia issues, daily treatment for intestinal parasites, colostrum, and hydrating well. She is getting FIVE small meals to keep other organ issues from developing. Super sweet, super cute this girl is a heartbeat and then some! Body score is at 1-2. We've seen worse, not many.  It emotionally hurts to pet her because she is so emaciated -and does she crave attention! She does not know about toys, and still thinks laying on something hard is what she is supposed to do, yet every now and again we glimpse her checking out a comfy bed and blankie. Diva training. 3rd night in.

    When she is healthier, she will need complete set of vaccinations and a spay. We estimate her rehabilitation and veterinary costs to be at about $3000.  However, that can change dependent on how quickly we can get her weight stabilized, cure the erlichia and get her healthy physically and mentally.  We will do whatever it takes, no matter how long it takes!  Rehab is a long process and includes not only medication, vet visits, surgery, supplements and lots of groceries ... it is also very time intensive and costly in man-hours.

    You guys are doing GREAT on her funding! The Giving Grid will remain active through April 28th, so please check back for updates and keep her in your thoughts.   Also, please share Margarita's story and her Giving Grid with your friends.
