Coco, is fighting for her life, and it may be our biggest challenge to date. Click here: This is little Coco's heartwarming story. We hope that Coco gets fully recovered soon! We'll keep you posted of Coco's progress. Coco suffers from Transmissable Veneral Tumors, TVT. This is not an ailment common to the developed world. In case you are wondering, it is a sexually transmitted disease between dogs, but it also presents a danger to humans that come into contact with these bloody and unsightly masses. In Coco's case, the disease has spread all over her body, but a six week course of chemotherapy has a high rate of success.

First you saved Nion! His amazing and heartwarming story is chronicled here. Nion hid under his bench. He wouldn't raise his head or make eye contact, but Junior coaxed hungry Nion out with food. Tufts of white hair were attached to the scabs covering his malnourished body. Other spots were raw and bloody. He was riddled with parasites. His tail resembled that of a reptile. His teeth and gums were bloodied from scraping food off the concrete.
Remember Laura? Rescued with hours to live? Her body was so shrunken from hunger that her skin hung loosely. Most of her fur was gone and almost all of her skin was raw and sore from mange. Read about her total transformation in our fourth Crowdrise update
