5 y/o Female GSD Pittsburgh

Star - Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center

I saw this dog today when I was dropping off some things at the shelter. She stayed on her bed and watched me. She looks very sad, stressed, and forlorn, her family abandoned her because they were "moving" and she has a pretty severe skin condition that the shelter staff said they thought might be a food allergy.

She looks like she really needs some help! They are looking for a home with GSD experience. Thought I'd put the word out.

Is there a way to help Star. Donations so she can see a vet. I cant take her but I would contribute to her. Sending prayers for her to find a home or a rescue.

@Daisy&Lucky's Mom I am sure you could call the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center - they were very friendly and helpful when I asked about her. They might accept a donation to be used specifically for any vet bills she might have, I'm not sure what their policy is. I know she is being treated for it currently, but I'm not sure what her treatment plan is. It could be that they are giving some kind of general treatment and haven't been able to take her to see a specialist.

Does the shelter work with rescues? There are several GSD rescues in the NE. Hopefully, they have been contacted.

Got a callback. She had a possible adoptive family see her today. She was a little intense with their dog. The shelter accepted donation and were very willing to talk about Star. So here is bump for the Starry girl. The woman whose extension was 213 told me to call vback anytime to get updates.
