Mexx – rest in peace

Unfortunately Mexx had some sort of seizure or stroke and we had to let him go. Sad we only for 9 days with him.. Rest in peace sweet boy.

Mexx is a 14 year old Poodle / Maltese Mix. He came to us after his owner passed away. As you can see when we first got him he was a bit of a mess but after 1.5 hours of grooming he looks so much better and will feel so much better with all the matts gone and nails trimmed !

Mexx has now gone to the vet. He does have early renal disease. High blood pressure. And does need a dental but unfortunately with his health we’re not sure we’re able to do that. He’s also got ongoing tummy issues right now so we’re just working on that. .

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
