Pug rescued from shelter needs our help.

This little girl was rescued by Pugs 'N Pals today from the Carson Shelter. She is in desperate need of donations in order to give her the needed treatment to save her life.  

 Carina is only 6 months old and probably has the worst case of mange Pugs 'N Pals has ever seen. She is fighting a  wide spread infection, has pus coming out of every part of her body and is covered in ticks and fleas.  In addition, she will probably lose her left eye due to an ulcer that is also infected. Her right eye does not look much better and up until now, it is undetermined if she has any vision.  Poor Carina is on medication to help her deal with the tremendous amount of pain and discomfort she is in.

If you can help, please send a donation to:

Pugs 'N Pals
c/o Carina's Fund
P.O. Box 9343
Newport Beach, CA 92658 

OR through Paypal:

Thanks for your help everyone!

What an upsetting sight! And there's so many others out there. May Carina's life turn completely around from now on.
Sorry, Gunther, I was coming with every intention of being playful but this just took all my joy away.

OH that poor sweet dawg. I hope she doesn't lose her eye. What a terrible thing for people to allow to happen. I hope THEY suffer as much as she has.

I don't know how this happens, especially in only 6 months time. I suppose I could try to imagine different scenarios, but I don't want to put those images in my mind.

I'll get updates as they come in from her foster mom at Pugs 'N Pals.

Thanks again you guys,

My heart is so sad for this little baby. I can only imagine the pain she must be feeling.

I do not see how this can happen and maybe I do not want to know.
Thank you for telling us about her.
I hope she finds someone to love her and make all the sad stuff go away, and I hope she does not looses her eye.
I send wishes of cozieness to her
