About the Campaign
Her infected tooth is swollen,
so big her mouth bulges out.
Kylene got rescued last Summer by Soul2Soul Animal Rescue in Oregon. At that time the doctor noticed that she had a this bad tooth, but hoped it could be kept under control, because Kylene was in bad shape, and older, and he didn’t want to put her through surgery. (The video above is her getting a bath just after being rescue.)
Well, first, let’s talk about her condition. This poor girl lived on a chain, in a dirt yard in rural Oregon. The man who owned her kept a bunch of dogs on his property, and they were all mistreated and neglected like this. He died, and some of his extended family living in California came to deal with his property. They were of course horrified by what they found, and fortunately got in contact with Soul2Soul, who came out and rescued Kylene. By this time Kylene was the only dog left alive. The relatives came to find out from neighbors that shortly before the man had died he had five dogs tied up on his property. Two were found dead on their chains, another was killed by a Mountain Lion and one had escaped, and could not be found.
Kylene when rescued last year:
Kylene was the only one left. Tied up, skinny, covered not only in dirt, but in urine and feces. Fortunately she was friendly. She was scared, she was traumatized, but she could be walked and handled… and she is now a very happy and friendly dog!
So fast forward to THIS Summer, and Kylene’s tooth infection has gotten bad. The doctor now says, it has to come out. In the photos below you can see how the left side of her mouth has a bulge from the infection. It’s painful, to the point that Kylene stops eating. The doctor did a blood test, and says she is healthy enough now for surgery, and it should not take too long to perform. Medications are kind of keeping the infection down, so it is not terribly bad, but the tooth has to go and the infection get surgical treatment.
Kylene has had a hard life, but now she is safe and living a happy life. This surgery will make a big difference for her, and it isn’t even that expensive! Even a small donation will go a long way to get Kylene fixed up, so if you can make a donation, please do so today! WOOF!
