Skye was picked up off the streets as a stray in Palm Valley, Texas, and every bit looked the part. The one-year-old Husky mix was covered in mange and had lost most of her fur. The poor dog was emaciated and suffering from a tick-borne disease. She was picked up by animal control officers and taken to the local shelter where she was immediately placed on the euthanasia list.
This shelter was the highest kill-shelter in the country. Dogs there with medical issues are euthanized right away because the shelter doesn’t have the means or space to treat them. But the shelter staff wanted to do everything they could to try and help. So they contacted Rescue Dogs Rock NYC to see if they’d take her.
Rescue Dogs Rock knew they had to pull Skye right away, because if they didn’t, she’d die. So they went and got her that same day and took her to a vet. Skye then went into boarding while the team members looked into potential foster homes for her.
