We are so proud to announce our first sales have made a life saving difference!
🐕Thanks to all the amazing supporters of our mission who attended the birthday of @churro_the_chiweenie and purchased ONUD T shirts along with the generous support of @firstdraftdtla which donated a portion of the party’s proceeds, we were able to support the efforts of @pacificpupsrescue !!
Read Below what this investment was able to do for Lydia, a very special pup!!
“Lydia Is a 6 year old terrier mix who has been fighting for her life for some time now. When our volunteer went to the shelter, she saw that Miss Lydia was scheduled to be put down that same day. She knew she couldn’t let this Sweet girl lose her life. We knew she had medical issues, and we didn’t have the funds at the time to cover it all, but we knew we’d make it work! ! 🐕 Lydia was the most emaciated dog we have ever rescued. I don’t even know how she was alive, being as skinny as she was. She also has a one inch+ mass dangling from her eye, and a cherry eye..
When we got her home, she had extreme stomach trouble, was peeing every 15 minutes, drinking like crazy, no appetite, and had no energy. A day or so later we realized that she’s blind!
We got her into the vet, and discovered she is diabetic. Once starting her on her insulin, we started to see significant improvement, and then it plateaued.
For 2 1/2 months, her diabetes was not responding to her insulin. We kept bringing her in for testing and increasing the amounts of insulin, but her glucose levels were still off the charts. The day before One Nation Under Dog donated to us, Lydia was rushed to the emergency vet, where she stayed for 2 days. She was diagnosed with pancreatitis, which can be deadly to a diabetic if not treated right away. Emergency vet visits cost A LOT.
We received the donation while Lydia was in the emergency vet. It couldn’t have come at a better time, and couldn’t have been more helpful.
Her body is finally responding to her insulin, and her glucose levels looks perfect. She is now eligible for her eye surgery, and we’re also excited to see her on the mend, being the happy & silly girl we have come to love! Thank you One Nation Under Dog, for helping us be able to save Lydia’s life!"
