ABANDONED AND NEGLECTED, SWEET SENIOR JULIA NEEDS OUR HELP. We secured an emergency foster and rushed to 69th Precinct where someone had dropped off a senior mastiff that was found outside on the coldest day of the year. The moment we looked into her eyes we saw so much pain and sadness😢. We took her to the vet where we learned Julia is about 10 years old and shows multiple signs of being overbred. It was obvious she was used to carry multiple litters, and then discarded like trash. Someone let her suffer and watched as a large firm mammary gland tumor grew on her body. Her X-rays also reveled a severe spondylitis in multiple vertebrae which means she has arthritis and getting around is not so comfortable for her. Our vet said a fine older lady like herself deserved to be named Julia Roberts 💁🏻‍♀️, and we agreed!

Julia is now on anti-inflammatory meds and antibiotics and is on the way to being infection free and hopefully in less pain🙏🏼. She will also be scheduled for surgery to remove the tumor and be spayed. Julia is in a temporary foster home but needs permanent placement ASAP. If you can FOSTER OR ADOPT and show her there is still kindness and love in the world, please submit an application on our website. Even with all that she has been through she’s in good spirits and loves to be pet and admired. She is also gentle with other dogs and listens to commands.

We can’t make rescues like Julia Roberts without the help of our wonderful supporters. Julia needs us, and we need you. Her vet bills continue to grow. If you’d like to be a part of her recovery please consider making a donation towards her medical care.

We look forward to helping her heal and sharing her progress until she finds the home and family she truly deserves. ❤️
