Conroe, TX (near Houston) - #197012, Abby, F, adult, mange
Adult female with sarcoptic mange near Houston, TX. Has been initially treated but needs a foster or adopter to commit to her recovery. An Ohio rescue had arranged to take both her and the dog she was surrendered with, but backed out at the last minute.
This is a very over burdened shelter (aren't they all?) - I adopted a dog from them last year and they would have thrown in a two-fer if I wanted. They will work with rescue/transport. Area rescues were notified but are full, and the shelter is now at capacity as well.
Abby is described as laid back and sweet. They would love to be able to place both her and her pack mate together but I suspect would separate if needed.
There is a very active group of shelter supporters who can assist with food, crates, transport, etc., and if she stays in the area the shelter will cover treatment for a foster.
I just called the shellter about Abby and she is still there and in isolation. I asked if an out of state person could adopt her(we are in Ohio), but the lady put me to a voicemail of someone else. So I left a message and hopefully will get a call back.
