12 Strays of Christmas – Day 12

The St. Paul Police Department came across Ronnie roaming the streets, all alone. He was shy and nervous to approach the officers, but once they were able to get him, they noticed his obvious poor condition. He is covered in sores, has hair loss, and has dry, thickened skin. They immediately brought Ronnie to the vet. After examination, Ronnie is now being treated for mange, which you can learn more about on our blog: https://ruffstartrescue.org/2022/10/21/what-is-mange/

We believe with time and healing, Ronnie will be a brand new pup. He loves treats, knows basic commands, and is very gentle. He did well with his dog test at St. Paul Animal Control (SPAC), but we recommended slow intros due to his pain level.

Nothing would make us happier than to have Ronnie join RSR before the holidays. He currently resides at SPAC. Do you have space in your home for this 4-year-old? Sign up to foster today and bring Ronnie home for the holidays. Ronnie’s care will include baths to help calm the skin while he heals from the inside out.

Ronnie’s first stop at RSR will be with our vetting team to determine any veterinary needs. Please donate to his care and that of the 415+ other strays who joined RSR this year.
