    Robin 2's Story . . .

    Original: “The consensus was that the kindest thing MAESSR could do for Robin was to send him to the bridge.”

    Robin came to MAESSR after being seized as a cruelty case in northern Pennsylvania.  He had been tied outside for the last four years with very little shelter and very little food.  Both blind and deaf, Robin’s muscles in his rear legs had deteriorated to the point that he had difficulty walking.  Additionally, he had a bad case of pneumonia among many other health issues.
    Robin was an amazingly sweet boy.  Unfortunately when he was taken to the vet for a full workup, it was discovered that he had a large mass in his chest.  This mass was pushing against his airways making it very hard for him to breath.  An honest assessment was made of all of his health issues and the pain he was in.  The consensus was that the kindest thing MAESSR could do for Robin was to send him to the bridge.
