Patrick Star

Last Sunday, a weak, very sick, little Pit Bull mix was dumped outside of a woman's home in Vossburg, Mississippi.

Due to the location of her home... which is right off the interstate... her property has become a virtual dumping ground for unwanted dogs. She's constantly struggling to deal with the numbers of dogs thrown out at her house. However, the condition of this particular dog was much worse than the others she usually finds when she walks outside.

The woman named the dog Patrick. Then, she frantically started posting the dog on facebook, desperately searching for help for this poor boy.  

I was busy at work that morning, so I hadn't yet seen any of those urgent posts about this dog. But it didn't take long for the calls, texts, and messages to start pouring in...

First, I talked to my friend, Cathy, who asked me to check the photo she'd posted on my wall and call her back. Hearing the concern in her voice, I knew it was bad...

When I saw the picture, instantly, my heart was broken. No matter how many times I view a photo like that... it never gets any easier. And no matter how much cruelty I witness... I'll never understand how people can be so damn hateful... how any person could force a dog to suffer in this way... and then dump him on the side of the road like trash.

When I talked to Cathy again, I told her I'd try to figure something out, and I'd need to talk to the woman as well. But before I even had time to think, there were more texts and calls coming in, begging me to take this dog.

So, later that day, I asked my friend Dana to comment on Patrick's facebook post for me, and simply say: "Ashley Owen Hill has committed to take this dog." Then, I talked to the woman who had him, and we worked out the details.


Me, Patrick, & the woman who found him
On Monday, the woman took Patrick to the vet. During his evaluation, he was diagnosed with sarcoptic mange, ear mites, internal parasite infestation, high fever, and anemia, in addition to severe emaciation and malnourishment. In fact, this boy was so weak, he was unable to walk... weighing only 26 pounds... when he should weigh at least twice that.  

On Tuesday, Caycee and I drove to meet the woman at her vet in Quitman, MS, so I could take Patrick home. Based on the photos of him, I thought I was prepared for what I'd see that day.

I was wrong...

I can't even explain in words just how underweight this dog truly is. The pictures don't do him justice. I can't even tell you just how sick he truly is. I can't even describe just how weak he truly is, as his little body fights to survive.

Further, in addition to everything else, at some point, his former "owners" made the cruel decision to perform a painful, homemade ear crop job on Patrick. As I try to imagine the cruelty he's known, all of his life... it's almost too much to bear.

When I first laid eyes on him, I was shocked. The only words I could muster were: "Oh dear God..." Then, I bent down, rubbed his head, and asked: "Who did this to you, buddy??"

And then... he looked up and gave me the sweetest little kiss, right on my chin. I looked over at Caycee, and simply said: "I'm in love!!!"

Just like that... I fell in love with a boy named Patrick. Or as I like to call him... "Patrick Star."

And in turn, my little Patrick Star... became a Lucky Dog... for the very first time in his life.


*Patrick has a long road of recovery ahead. He hasn't yet been tested for heartworms or neutered. For now, I'll be focused on weight gain, mange treatment, and getting his little body healthy again. If you'd like to donate to his care, please click below.

  8. OMG - this story has me in tears! I am always amazed at the cruelty that these babies have endured at the hands of a human...we call ourselves civilized...I beg to differ with that term when I see this baby and what he been through in his short life. I thank God everyday that there are enough caring people in the world that are willing to step up and take in an animal that has been abused. This little has a tough road ahead of him but it's not nearly as tough as it has been in the past. With enough love and care...hopefully this baby will replace all of the bad memories with only happy ones!!

  9. I am unfortunately able to offer a financial donation however, I regularly advocate, and it breaks my heart as well at how often this sort of thing happens....... I really have a difficult time trying to figure these horrible people out. I am so grateful though that there are angels, as yourself, out there.. Thank you so much for doing and caring <3 I pray to one day have the means to do as you do... May the Lord continue to bless and guide you Ashley...

  15. In regards to the woman who's house gets the most dumped animals, does she accept donations for dog food? Does she care for them until someone else can come for the dogs?

    1. Hey! There are several people who are working to help her with her situation :) Also, I told her she could keep the donations raised in the original chip-in they started for Patrick, so she could use that $ for food & vet care for the many other dogs. It was about $600, which she's using for spay/neuter, vaccinations, and food... until the rescuers working with her find homes for these dogs.

  17. Check out Microtek products by Eqyss. They are gentle and work great on Mange. I sent a gallon of the shampoo and spray they recommended to a shelter in wv that had picked up 56 or so dogs that were dumped. They all had severe Mange. I called two weeks after they got it and they were all starting to get peach fuzz. Eqyss guarantees their products as well. Blessings - Heather

  19. The NJ SPCA rescued a dog that was found in a dumpster at the end of a trash chute at a Newark NJ apartment. He was found by the maintenance man on St Patrick's Day 2011. They call him Patrick the Miracle. He too was thought dead from starvation. They caught his abuser and they are still waiting for the court case to be heard. It's been over a year of the abuser getting continuances. Patrick lives at the home of the vet who cared for him. He is actually at the point where he may need to lose a little weight. What you do is awesome. I pray that your Patrick will soon be another Patrick the Miracle. Jayne

    1. I, too thought of the "other" Patrick. These Patricks look somewhat similar, and sadly, share similar stories. :( But thankfully and happily, they both now know love, kindness, care, and nourishment. I hope and pray that Patrick Star recovers as well as Pattick Miracle has done. Thank you, Ashley and Elly, and everyone else involved for all the wonderful things you do for these poor babies who never deserved the abuse and neglect they have suffered...they only deserve to be loved! <3

  26. I was in tears seeing the pictures of Patrick and reading the story about him. Thank god he is with you now ashley. I do not understand how someone can be so cruel to any animal. NMaybe it's the fact that he is part pit but that is no excuse for the way he has been treated. It would be nice to find out who did this and have them punished for what they did to him. I have 2 full grown pitties and they are treated just like human children. Keep up the good work and my prayers go out to you and all the dogs that you help.

  30. So happy Patrick is safe and is being cared for so that he can be healthy again and live a long happy life. I heard about Patrick when Elly first found him and she was asking for help. It is because of her that Patrick is safe. She took him to her own vets to make sure he got the proper attention he needed. I do hope Elly can see him and watch his progress as he gets better. It will be great for her to see the handsome strong dog that Patrick really is and that she saved. Will be watching his progress and praying that he gets stronger every day. Thankyou for helping him and making him better from the UK xxxxxx

  31. Ashley- I say this every time that I post on your blogs... You are an angel and we are so fortunate to have you in the rescue community! I can imagine the heart ache you felt when you first met Patrick. I have tears in my eyes reading your story. Thank you for all that you do! You so deserve the Chase award that you received!!!

  33. It amazes me anytime I read a story like this, the fact that any animal no matter the species or bread or anything has to go through something like this because our world is full of idiots that believe you can treat an animal as trash. I cannot say thank you enough for being a person who is willing to help this animal and many more to have the life that they should have. Here's hoping that Patrick makes a full recovery and gets the family that he wants and deserves.
    Thank you once again for being the person that you are.

  34. Oh Ashley, I wish I could do more, as it is, I changed all my donation dollars to go to you on a monthly basis, but after hearing about poor Patrick Star, and his previous brutal life, it breaks my heart to not be able to do more for your wonderful organization. You have deserved a gold halo and wings for your nonstop love and rescues of these poor babies. Just know that there is a very special horrific place in hell for these low lives of the lowest form of mankind. They surely are not human. Your friend, Suzanne

  35. Oh, Ashley, thank you SO much!! I've just made my first donation to you for Patrick. I wish I lived near you to help. I hope one day to save lives like you do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! HE is such a lucky dog to have found you and I pray he makes 110% recovery!!

    1. Count me in on that one too!! People can be soooo cruel to an animal, I just don't understand how!!! God Bless you Ashley & thank you for all you sacrifice in order to take care of these poor dogs that some monster had mistreated & thrown away. I just sit & sob everytime I read one of your rescue stories. I get so upset that my family now begs me to stop reading them. I get hysterical, & can't stop sobbing over it. It just makes me sick to my stomach....Here I sit, listening to two dogs snore while sleeping within a couple feet of where I sit. The other 3 dogs are peacefully sleeping with two of my three cats sleeping nearby also. Here are 8 animals you don't need to worry about, they are ALL spayed/neutered with none of them ever contributing to the animal population. There are too many pups & kittens needing homes, I'm not going to add to the problem, I'm trying to become part of the solution!! God Bless You, Ashley Owen

  48. Ashley - I am deeply Saddened to Know that it took this Dog to get you to Go and Help Elly - I Messaged you Months ago - Asking to You to Take her some Dog Food which We had Raised Money for as Her Dogs were Hungry - All we Needed was Someone to Deliver it. You lived Closer to her than Any of us and You couldn't even be Bothered to message me Back. Luckily We found an Angel who Coordinates Transports and She rerouted One of her Drivers to Take Dogs food that Needed it Desperately. I hope this Dog is NOT used for Raising Funds for your Rescue - Oh Wait - There is a Donate Button.....

    1. Annie ~ Before assuming, it would be wise to do a little fact-finding. You say you messaged Ashley -- are you sure your message reached her? And do you not understand she cannot be responsible for every situation? She may be nearer to that person than you, but that doesn't mean she can handle every problem. Perhaps you're angry because YOU didn't take care of things a little better. Sounds as though you're projecting your own issues. IMHO.

      Delete
    2. Annie, it's awfully judgmental to slam on Ashley for not doing more to help Elly. She is only one person. I'm thankful to Ashley for taking on Patrick Star and also to Elly for her kindness in trying to help the poor dogs who get dumped at her house. How overwhelming that must be for her! But when trying to help animals, kindness goes so much further in so many ways than judgment does. Peace to you.

      Delete
    3. Annie,
      First of all, I never saw a message from you. If you sent one and I missed it, I sincerely apologize. I get hundreds of messages each day, and no matter how hard I try... I can't ever seem to get back to all of them.

      Secondly, over the past few months, many rescuers have worked together to help Elly. So even if I did miss your message, many of us have been working to help her... with food, funds, fosters, adoptions, etc. I appreciate the fact that you were one of those people.

      Thirdly, when Patrick was dumped at Elly's home, others started a chip-in for Elly, before I even took him. That chip-in raised more than $600 in funds, which I told Elly to keep... in order to help the other dogs that have been dumped on her property with food, vet care, etc. That was money raised for Patrick, but I told Elly that I would raise any funds needed, as long as she used the chip-in funds to help her other dogs. If I was sooo concerned about funds... why would I have done that?

      Lastly, you have no idea just know many people begged me to take this dog, including Elly. If you think I was searching for another dog, that's just not true. I only stepped up, based on the desperate requests from many rescuers in MS, and the special needs of Patrick. I'm sorry you felt the need to respond to my post with the words you used, but I do realize that you're probably just concerned, and any rescuer like me can appreciate that.
      Thanks,
      Ash

    7. Also, important note: According to one of last year's Chase winners, contest winnings won't even begin to arrive until at least January. Therefore... a request for funds today... for a dog who needs help today... is totally acceptable by LDR.

      Ash :)

  53. Animal rescue is a horrendous and heartbreaking job most of the time. To save and find homes for the massive numbers of homeless animals there are in Mississippi has few rewards. The only joy happens when an animal's life is saved & it is placed in a great home. No one does this work for fame, glory & most certainly, not for money. Ashley Owen Hill and Elly Gilmour are both dedicated to saving animals lives. Elly found poor Patrick, she did exactly the right thing by putting him on Facebook to enlist others in helping her help him. Fortunately Ashley had room for him at her facility. I prefer to celebrate the fact that Patrick was rescued...he is in excellent hands...and he will be fine soon. I am extremely impressed with all of the people who have stepped up to help Patrick thru getting the word out about his plight, who have donated money for his medical bills and especially Ashley and Elly who literally have saved his life! On YouTube I am always seeing videos about how animals help each other, let's please try to be at least as pure in heart by working to help each other & not stand in judgement of the efforts of others. PS If I ever have a problem with anyone I will send them an email or a private message & not call them out in a public forum. Why be hurtful or critical if we really don't know the circumstances? For me, I'm thrilled to bits over Patrick & looking forward to his progress!

All your precious dogs are very Lucky Dogs to be in your care. I know the Chase grant is a blessing to your rescue efforts and you will use it wisely. To the negative posts, "SHAME ON YOU"!!!!! No one knows what all goes on at your rescue on a daily bases or the number of dogs there that you and Caycee care for.

  74. Hey My foster Momma dog has mange.. I have been rotating between fresh aloe plant and olive oil. The olive oil helps to soothe the itch while also killing the mites. The cold aloe helps with the pain and soothes the skin. Also tons of vit. C. and maybe even some scrambled eggs.
    My Sabrina girl was emaciated pretty bad but she held on to hope for me while we arranged for her to come up..doing her best to feed her pups. The first night I had her I fed her away from her pups... She didn't eat...she brought mouth fulls of food to her pups and nudged them to eat after they had eaten and gone to sleep she ate the 20 or so pieces of kibble.... (I feed her more after but she is such a sweetie) She has gained at least 20 pounds since I've had her! :)

    Your rescue and blog show that, yes, there is incredible cruelty in the world and sweet dogs like Patrick suffer all the time. But there is such kindness too, which is what Patrick will experience for the rest of his life. That is amazing! Reading this makes me appreciate even more my own rescue pup and the hard work of the many volunteers that brought her to me...you do such important work!

    Sorry Ashley, I know you are a very busy lady but I just wondered how Patrick is doing. I saw you tell someone you had put a pic of him on your blog in early October. I have searched but can't find it. I only have my phone ( no pc) but saw the poor little soul when he was first found and wondered how he was doing. Do hope he is ok. Thankyou from the UK xxxx

  91. Hi Ashley,
    Been a long time since we have heard from you. I hope everything is ok. I am chronically ill and have been homebound battling a serious disease for the past 2 years. I really enjoy hearing your stories about your babies because we share a similar wit and a common bond of the desire to save these furbabies who can't help themselves. My body may be broken right now but my heart still feels exactly what yours does when you are called into action to serve. I miss being able to scoop them up and make a difference in their lives. Reading your blog gave me that little extra push to keep fighting my Lyme Disease so I can get back out there to bring whatever comfort I can to the animals in need who cross my path. Now I have also lost my 21 years old kitty companion last August so my sickbed seems extra lonely. I am sure you are very busy but I thought you should know that you have a reader out here who gleans great heartfelt enjoyment from your blog while her body cannot do what her heart wishes that it could. Keep up the great work~ your blog is more important than I think you may realize.

  94. This post made me cry. I am new to reading your blog, and it is amazing. I have a one year old pit bull named Wallace Meatball, he is my child. I couldn't imagine ever finding him in this condition. I hope I can make enough money to do what you're doing for these dogs. Sadly, I am a broke college student, or I'd donate all that I have. You really do an amazing thing, and you are truly inspiring.
