Nothing puts a bigger smile on our faces than following the progress of animals rescued from neglect and abuse. Watching them learn how to love again is truly a miracle. GiGi, a four-year-old Schnauzer/Terrier mix, was abandoned, all alone and in critical condition for months before finding her way to non-profit Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. She has been at the emergency vet ever since her rescue, receiving life-saving medical treatment. Slowly but surely, she is learning to trust again.

GiGi was hairless, dehydrated, emaciated, and anemic when Rescue Dogs Rock NYC found her. After the vet evaluated her, it was confirmed she had sarcoptic and Demodex mange and was heartworm positive. 


Rescue Dogs Rock NYC has spent thousands of dollars healing GiGi, without hesitation because they simply refuse to give up on her.

Their dedication has paid off… this is GiGi today! 


She looks AMAZING


GiGi continues to recover at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s vet partner. Soon, she will be ready to be placed in foster care for further recuperation. What an incredible transformation!
