Kelvin

Stuck in the Animal Shelter, no one would take him because of his condition and age. But we knew YOU want us to! So we took Kelvin and got him to the vet! He needs some help, but he has a good chance!

About the Campaign

So neglected, so sweet!

Dogs like Kelvin just break your heart, because despite all the mistreatment they have suffered, they still trust people and just want to be a good dog!

While examined by the vet, even when his painful abscesses in his mouth were touched, he didn’t growl or snap. And then he stuck his head in the technicians shoulder and rubbed! It’s just so sad, but also amazing.

Kelvin is 10 years-old, or so. He’s a senior dog, but not super old. He’s just older! The shelter listed him as having mange, but our vet has determined that he is actually free of mange, and probably has a bad thyroid condition which has cause his skin to dry up, scale over, and hair to fall out. He also probably has not had a bath in a year.

We can imagine that he was dumped by someone who couldn’t stand his condition, and didn’t know (or didn’t care) that this thyroid condition can be treated with a cheap medication.

Turned in to the shelter in horrible condition…

…and then trapped there for nearly 3 weeks.

We got him out, and we got him to the vet, and we got him his first bath in who knows when. He has terrible dental issues, including a swollen tooth infection (abscess) that is pushing into his eye. His skin is bad, but will probably recover on its own with medications. And he has an ear infection.

We need to do a series of blood, thyroid and Cushing’s disease tests. He will need dental surgery once he is up for it. And of course he needs antibiotics and other meds.

He was so comforted by his bath today, that afterward we wrapped him in a towel and he slept like a rock for nearly 3 hours! Can you help us help Kelvin!!? Can you share his story? Big thanks! Big WOOOFS!!

    Doodle benefited so much from this rescue and he now makes everyone who meets him fall in love. I bet Kelvin can have the same life once he gets better.

      Doodle is the best! And guess what, the same volunteer that found Doodle and asked us to rescue him, she asked us to take Kelvin! 🙂

    I pray that Kelvin is feeling love and his physical wounds are healing.

    Is there a State-wide type of camera or somehow try to track the owners of the dogs that can be punished for this horrible situation?

    I do not know how Kelvin could go unnoticed in an Animal Shelter. They are negligible.
