Sorry that I haven't posted Mama Mabels story yet. Once these babies get to Camp Fifty, our motto is the past is in the past, and we only move forward. But her story needs to be told so it can stop happening. So real quick, here is Mabel's story from @playersforpits ❤️❤️❤️ After a life of abuse and neglect, Mabel now has the support needed to help her find her happiness with a forever family. Mabel will need extensive medical treatment. She suffers from demodex mange, and while it is not contagious, it is an extremely painful skin condition brought on by living in filth and poor conditions.
We met Mabel the day after she was brought into our suburban animal control facility. She was shaking constantly in absolute fear of us. After a good 15 minute of patience and comfort, she finally allowed us to pet her red, hot skin and then made her biggest move of faith by walking up to us and then laying in our laps. Some of the vet technicians at the facility came in to check on us and it was then that we learned how bad her medical prognosis really was. We learned that the day she was brought in she was found outside in sub zero degree temperature weather. She started pouring blood from her back end when she laid down and the vets believe she had just given birth within the last day or so. The area was checked for babies and despite the police's best efforts, none were recovered. We believe she was either dumped by her 'owner' or escaped from their house. We can do nothing but pray the puppies somehow survived. Her puppies could have also been stillborn which would cause 'money hungry' owners to dump her out of pure anger. We will never know unfortunately... Mabel forgives people as she shows us everyday but she still fears most. But despite however scared she is, she still does not react or display any negative behaviors. *As we know now, Mabel LOVES other dogs. She is so sweet, happy & wiggly. She is the definition of forgiveness, and I personally have a lot to learn from her. So now that we got that out of the way, let's focus on how awesome her life is now! Wish list for Mama in Bio ❤️ #mamamabel
I set up a comfy little area in my office because I wasn't sure if Mabel would be brave enough to come upstairs yet. Well, Juanita & Millie corralled her and showed her it was okay and now we're all in bed safe, comfy & warm and I'm really wishing chipotle delivered right about now because I'm never leaving my house again! #mamamabel
Welcome to Camp Fifty, Mama Mabel. She's already wagging her tail and chasing Millie and Juanita around the yard. I could barely get her to walk in the house about 25 minutes ago. i don't typically introduce them all so fast but the dogs are making her happier then I've gotten to see her yet! So Happy!!! Thank you @playersforpits for the opportunity to foster this perfect angel face ! #mamamabel
