Meet Mauka, a pit bull that was required to eliminate for the first few years of her life, yet transformed into a dedicated companion after experiencing love.
She is our spokes-dog for our 5th annual Shelter Dish, which raises money to provide well balanced meals to sanctuary animals across the United States.
Rescuers from Cedartown Pet Rescue, Education & Sterilization (CARES) conserved 107 pets from an illegal dogfighting ring. The drastically malnourished pets were living outdoors on chains and also had never recognized a mild touch.
Nevertheless, when rescuers arrived a skeletal pit bull come over wagging her tail– this is the pet dog they named Mauka. She was covered in wounds from previous battles as well as in hopeless requirement of beneficial food.
Mauka was taken in by TREATMENTS and fed nutritious food as she experienced love for the very first time. Quickly after she arrived, she created a high fever as well as began throwing up. She was offered the vet and identified with Babesia. It was treatable however the meds were expensive. The rescue said her life mattered and waged therapy.
Gradually, she started to put on weight and open up. Her character started to emerge and also a year later she ultimately found a caring for life home. She now deals with six various other dogs that she plays with and sleeps in bed with every evening.
The shelter was able to supply all the necessary vet treatment as a result of donations from generous people and also from the cash they conserved by receiving given away pet food. Food is not only vital but one of the biggest expenses for a shelter. GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Financial institution helps fill up the gap, making sure that pets awaiting their permanently houses, like Mauka, always have a complete belly.
