This incredibly sweet girl is Carlie (formerly Violet). She lived on a chain, neglected in every way possible, for what must have seemed like an eternity to her. Fortunately, an Animal Control Officer in St. Landry Parish, LA saw her and saved her from such a horrendous existence. As the ACO described her condition: “Her spine, arched, raised, almost like a dinosaur. Her twisted frame tears at my HEART. Today, I watched her frame sway with the chill in the air. Every fiber in her body, quakes, trying TO STAY WARM. She is the kindest dog.” She collapsed as the ACO freed her from the chain she was on.
Due to her poor condition, she was taken directly to a vet. Carlie was so emaciated that her body had started eating itself. She weighs a mere 33pounds. She has worms and an infection in both eyes that needs to be treated as well as being heartworm positive. She may have more going on that we will not know about for at least a couple of days. The shelter Director said it’s the worse she’s ever seen for direct neglect. She said she has no idea how Carlie survived. When SSRR heard about this poor little baby and everything she had been through, we knew we had to take her and get her the medical care she needed to live the best life possible. As you know medical care for a dog in such bad shape can be very expensive and we need to turn to our wonderful SSRR family, and those whose heart Carlie has touched, for help in the form of a donation to her medical fund. If you are able to donate to Carlie’s medical fund, we would be extremely appreciative as will Carlie. It doesn’t have to be a big donation. The small donations add up quickly and are a huge help to our organization.
Southern States Rescued Rottweilers, Inc. (SSRR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. This organization is operated solely by volunteers; therefore, 100% of all funds receive will go towards Carlie’s Medical Fund. Anything left over will go towards the rescue and care of our
