These three dogs were dropped off at a local Maryland shelter when their owners left the country. It appears that their teeth have been neglected all their lives. Tartar bridges all their teeth, hair is encrusted in that tartar and there is severe dental disease. These poor dogs will more than likely have no teeth left after their surgery. This kind of dental disease affects these dogs' overall health possibly causing heart murmurs and weakening vital organs. We did not hesitate to help them even though we were told about their horrific mouths. We are asking for financial help because this could possibly cost upwards of $1500. Dentals are DRNA's biggest medical cost. Our adoption fees don't cover the cost of dentals but we do them, even for seniors, because it is an investment in their health. We are asking you, our loyal supporters, to help us make ends meet so these babies can get the care they need. Thank you so much!
