"Starving Akita in Kansas, please help!" is the message MARS received.... Rey's owners decided they didn't care about her anymore and stopped feeding her, leaving her to fend for herself. Some neighbor saw Rey as she was running loose in the Missouri countryside with a pack of dog refugees and reached out for rescue. MARS has transported her to our Veterinarian and started recovery care. This poor girl has had a hard life. She has a heavy flea infestration, is covered in ticks and abrasions, weighs 52lbs. (should be at least 75), has hookworms, and is positive for ehrlichia and anaplasmosis.
Through it all she has been the sweetest little Rey (!) of sunshine with all who have met her. Please help us pay for her care and provide her with the bright future she deserves.
