Every single day, Judy Obregon Rossell ventures to a site in Echo Lake of Fort Worth, Texas that is known for being a popular spot where people dump unwanted animals. Judy checks to see if there are any scared and lonely dogs who are in need of food, healthcare, and a new home.
Sometimes she gets there in time to save them, and other times it’s too late and she finds poor dogs who have passed on after being left for dead.
Thankfully when she came across Mercy, she wasn’t too late.
Though Mercy was still alive, she was in bad shape with fractures and broken bones that required a specialized surgery.
“Unfortunately we do not know what happened to Mercy and can only assume the worse based on her injuries,” Judy wrote on Facebook. “It is disturbing that Mercy had to deal with evil people at such a young age, I don’t even want to think about it!!! The area in which she was found in has a history of many discarded souls ( dead and alive).”
Thanks to The Abandoned Ones “Saving Animals in Danger”, or TAO, they were able to raise funds to pay for Mercy’s surgery, which cost a few thousand dollars.
“Mercy has the sweetest soul that I can’t imagine the pain she endured, the fear of laying in the ditch she was found in,” Mercy said. “Dumped and ignored as she laid there in pain.”
Judy is the founder and CEO of TAO. They rescue animals, sometimes from unspeakable horrors.
As we mentioned before, Judy often finds abandoned dogs at the dumping ground that just don’t make it. But what’s even worse is that sometimes these dogs are mutilated and/or tortured before they are dumped.
The signs of abuse some of these dogs appear to have suffered are just unthinkable. But thanks to Judy and the TAO, some of those dogs don’t have to continue suffering.
“You know that is one thing about animals I so love is that they are so loving and resilient regardless of what evil humans do to them,” Judy said.
Judy is basically a dog rescue angel. Sent from heaven to save to dogs, heal them, and love them.
And so is the rest of the team at TAO. If you’re able, you can make a donation to them at taoanimalrescue.com to help them save even more unfortunate animals.

Visit with Mercy today …( this posted to time line as well as 10/5/6/7 updates w/video of her eating )
My visit today with Mercy that I thought you all would love to see which was pretty exciting being when I got there they had mentioned that so far everything was going really well except she really didn’t want to eat ( besides the concern of no bowel movements) .
As you can see in video she decided to eat ( we a bit messy ) but it’s ok because she’s eating .
She also had bowels movements prior to me getting there and after I left. Prayers for continued bowel movements , pain free healing .
The Dr . everyone at the hospital are in LOVE with her !!

Creek Side Pet Care is a vet we have worked with in the past and Mercy checked in for a second opinion . Creekside is now a 24 hour emergency hospital and I didn’t know until I arrived ..meaning the charges have increased ..
The good news is that they are willing to accept donations over the phone ( still ) .

First and foremost we would like to Thank you all for the outpouring support and prayers for our sweet baby girl .
Unfortunately we do not know what happened to Mercy and can only assume the worse based on her injuries .
Mercy is dealing with several fractures and broken bones . The good news is she’s eating and is HW negative !!!
Right now our main concern is providing the best care as quickly as possible and per vet she needs her surgery ASAP !! . Her injuries are two to three days old .
She will be going in for second opinion ( today ) .
Her ( R) Illium , ( R ) Pubis and ( L ) Ischium are all fractured / broken .
The best news would be that all could just heal on its own .. but we do believe in miracles.
Once she is seen by second vet and specialists ( Dr . Vaughn ) gives us his opinion / and results we will post the given estimate ( if surgery is required ) .
We can say that the surgery itself for Baby Boy that required a plate est over $3000 ( that included follow up vet visits post op )
Please bare with us as we coordinate and move quickly so she can begin her life without pain .
I will be picking her up from first vet and transporting her to second vet ( I promised her I’d be back ) and I want her to see my face again ..and well I want and can’t wait to hold her again !!
I will post every step ( while not driving ) we make !!
The ortho vet is one we have worked with before who performed the surgery on our Baby Boy who required a plate ..and today Baby Boy is running and playing one of my best foster patients ( they all are ) .
It is disturbing that Mercy had to deal with evil people at such a young age , I don’t even want to think about it !!! The area in which she was found in has a history of many discarded souls ( dead and alive ) . Echo Lake in Ftw , Tx
Mercy is another one we were able to save ..
I will post second vet info and more info once we arrive ..
Thank you all for your amazing support..the love you are sharing with us and with Mercy just warms our hearts .
Hugs , Judy & The TAO Team
