Currently, Laws N Paws is helping out a pair of female dogs who are the victims of severe neglect and starvation. Odessa and her sister Christy were both rescued after spending much of their young life going hungry. The dogs are believed to be two to three years old and did what they could to try and survive.

According to the rescuer, Odessa was so hungry she did whatever she could to survive, at times eating plastic bags and rocks to try and fill up her stomach. Unfortunately, the lab mix now has an obstruction in her stomach due to the foreign objects in her body. Odessa may have to now have surgery to remove the objects from her body.

Laws N Paws is now asking the community for help fundraising so they can give Odessa the life-changing surgery she needs. Once she has the surgery, the rescue can then work on helping bring her to a normal weight and recover physically and emotionally from her ordeal. Any assistance that you can give to help sweet Odessa is so appreciated.
