ATHENA (Godess of Strength) 

On August 31st we took in a 7 week old black, ( 6 lbs), female Pug, with terrible mange. She was dumped at the 29 Palm shelter and they called us to help her or they would have to put her down. We rushed to get her of course.

Right now she has a severe infection from the mange as well as mange. Since her immune system is not developed yet, it has gotten bad quickly. She has very little hair on her. She is running a temperature and we put her on heavy antibiotics before things get worse. She also has coccidia, which we are treating as well. She is itchy and miserable right now. Doesn’t want to eat. We are caring for her around the clock and hoping against hope that it doesn’t get as bad as Carina’s was.

We are in desperate need of donation to care for her. If you are able to donate we would appreciate it. Also pass the word to other people that might be able to help us help little Athena.

You can send your check to Pugs ‘N Pals, c/o Athena’s fund, P.O. Box 9343, Newport Beach, CA 92658 or you can send a donation through pay pal via our WEB site. Please make it for “Athena’s Fund”

 Thank you so much for your support!

Athena tucked in for the night

Athena is doing well and he skin is improving. She still has an infection going on and unfortunately she just started with Kennel Cough. Poor thing just what she didn't need.  We are keeping a close eye on it as with her immune system being shot it could developed into pneumonia.  Here is a pic of her all snuggled up for the night :-)

Please keep her in your prayers.  Thank you!

Little Athena is doing okay. here Kennel Cough turned into an upper respiratory infection, but so far with antibiotics we have been able to not have it turn into pneumonia.  Due to her age we are limited to the type of antibiotics she can take, but so far so good.  Her open sores are looking better and we are still treating her for coccidia. She is going to be a pisspot, as crappy as she feels she has already destroyed two beds and put a hole on a wall :-)  She is going to be a handful.  Please continue to keep her in your prayers and please help us out with donations as she is going to be anothe expensive one.

Thank you!

A little update on Athena. She is doing great, growing and being a craszy puppy now that she feels well.
The hair on her body is all about grown in.  Her head and face which was the worse part, is taking a little bit longer for the hair to grown.  But she already looks like a totally different dog.  Pictures coming soon.
Thank you all for your support!
