Little Kenzie safe with NMDOG

| July 3, 2019

This sweet baby girl was chained up all of her little life… Continental Divide, McKinley County, NM just bordering the Reservation. She was reported to us at the beginning of the year by an anti-chaining advocate with UnChain Wisconsin as they were traveling through, so we reached out to our good friends with Animal Control at Gallup-McKinley County Humane Society. They responded immediately and took note of the dire situation, requesting a seizure warrant֫—which was denied by the judge. Their only recourse was to require proof of treatment by a vet: three vet visits later her condition only continued to worsen, which is not surprising considering her overall poor body condition and unsanitary environment. The responding Animal Control Officer continued to check in on her and finally the decision was made to surrender. THANK DOG. Six months too late, but better late than never…

Today is the first day of the rest of your life baby girl!! Village, please welcome Kenzie to the NMDOG pack!

Thank you to the good folks at Good Shepherd Animal Clinic for taking us in with no notice, helping with our intake assessment, putting a treatment plan in place and giving her a much-needed bath. We so appreciate you!!

Obviously malnourished, Kenzie is suffering from a severe case of Demodectic Mange with a well-advanced secondary skin infection. Her skin is literally cracking open, bleeding, oozing, painful to the touch, and it hurts her to walk on her little feet. It is infuriating to say the least, but she’s with us now, where she belongs and she will never suffer again.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation towards her ongoing care. You can use the DONATE button on the right-hand side, or you can call in a donation directly to GSAC for NMDOG Kenzie at (505)884-3200, OR you can mail a check to NMDOG, 9445 Coors Blvd NW #171, Albuquerque, NM 87114

Kenzie has a long road ahead and we have been struggling like crazy to make ends meet. But we have made a promise to her, a lifelong commitment. She’s an NMDOG now and forever. We are doing all we can to continue to answer these desperate calls for help. Unfortunately, it seems as if the need only continues to grow.

Kenzie is safe now, she’s settled in at NMDOG HQ (we had to get creative to make her a spot!), she is beginning to relax and she is on the road to recovery!! Thank you for helping us help these desperate, deserving, Forgotten Dogs of NM.

We are in DIRE NEED of foster homes for Kenzie and many of our amazing kids! Boarding expenses are beginning to really take a toll on us financially.
