    I'm guessing it's demodex mange, but the shelter either didn't do a test or just didn't post what they think it is. It could be a fungal infection, too.

    Euthanasia date was 6/28.
    I hope someone got to him.
    The tumors hanging from his abdomen and his overall condition is just horrific.
    My heart is breaking for him. If he got saved I send my deepest thanks to whoever is going to help him.
    If he didn't, please God take care of him and restore him to his glorious self.

    That breaks my heart :( I hope someone can give him a good home, he looks like such a sweet boy. If someone adopts him, I would like to contribute something towards his care. I don't have much being a single mother..... but I really would like to help in some way!

    His story is on the Saint Francis Animal Sanctuary website. He was rescued, immediately taken to a vet, and later crossed the Rainbow Bridge amongst caring people. I am absolutely mortified and heartbroken by this boys pics. Brought me to tears that someone could possibly let this poor animal get to this condition. Please be aware the pics are much worse on the Sanctuary's website.

    I am donating to this Sanctuary to thank them for trying to save this poor baby!

    How can someone be so cruel? This breaks my heart and makes me so sick. At least he was finally being loved and comforted in his last hours. I am going to give a donation too. May Alex rest in peace.......
