Most dogs don't escape Houston's Corridor of Cruelty. Tyree is one of the lucky ones. However, Tyree did not escape unscathed...
We don't know Tyree's history, but we do know that he now needs our help. His face tells a story that thousands of dogs in Houston have lived and ARE living daily...one of neglect, one of fear, one of hopelessness. The graying on his face makes him appear much older than his estimated five years of age. His teeth show trauma quite possibly caused by gnawing on a cage or a chain for hours and hours, wearing them down to painful, root-exposed nubs, wanting so desperately FREEDOM. Tyree is thin, and he has noticeable muscle wasting throughout his hips and rear legs.
And Tyree is heartworm POSITIVE, a fate unfortunately not surprising for a dog living on Houston's streets.
We will work tirelessly to give Tyree the life he so deserves. In honor of the thousands of street dogs still out there, we will help Tyree on to a happy, HEALTHY life.
But we will need your help to help Tyree. His medical expenses are estimated to be upwards of $450, as he will need multiple teeth extracted and, of course, heartworm treatment.
Thank you for helping us help him. Because he matters. Because they all matter.
