Please help our Starr! She came to NEBTR from the Howard County hoarding mill bust.

Starr was admitted to the emergency vet yesterday and her upcoming surgery to repair her broken leg will be complicated by a finding of grade 1-2 heart murmur and ongoing treatment with antibiotics for a double ear infection and pyoderma. She is on pain management and hydration to help get her ready for her surgery.

On top of all her medical issues. Starr has all the emotional and social scarring of being an abused mill mama. She is only 3 years young and deserves and long, happy future of joy and love. Although she came to NEBTR shy, fearful and uncomfortable, she has a true heart of gold and is already responding to foster mom's loving touch, care and cuddles.

She has a long road ahead of her and big bills for our NEBTR rescue. For yesterday alone, Starr's vetting estimate was $5,000-$8,000!

She already looks better with a cute pink sweater & collar. Please send her love, prayers, and lots of positive vibes and consider donating to her care at our Go Fund Me site.

Jones and Star, victims of the Howard County Maryland puppy mill raid, are safe in the hands of NEBTR! A Maryland couple were discovered running a puppy mill out of their home and were charged with over 100 counts of animal cruelty after Howard County Animal Control rescued 54 animals. The dogs, including Jones and Star suffered severe neglect, cruelty, and starvation. Many were in need of medical care for untreated, painful conditions resulting from the neglect and abuse. Our team at NEBTR jumped into action and reached out to the Howard County authorities at the shelter to offer our help. Jones and Star, being in deplorable condition, were released to our care

Now safe from further harm, Jones and Star have many medical issues. Star has a broken front leg that has been untreated for more than 2 days and now requires surgery to repair it. Jones, an unneutered male, has a grade 3 heart murmur and a severe skin condition which has caused the loss of all his hair

Their medical problems must be addressed and treated immediately. We have only begun to know the extent of the medical problems these sweet dogs will face. Their emotional state caused by a lifetime of abuse will be assessed also. But already at NEBTR foster homes, Jones and Star are receiving the love and care that has been denied their short lives so far.

As a community that loves Boston Terriers and all animals, we ask for your help. Let's send our love and support to Jones and Star. Let's tell them....

NO MORE NEGLECT......we care for you

NO MORE CRUELTY.....only love

❤️❤️❤️ Never before has your help been more needed. Please donate to the medical care of Jones and Star.
