Trinity SAD PHOTOS BEWARE!!

Hi all I wanted to post these pics of (Newly named) Trintiy she is at a rescue here in British Columbia (canada) and here is her story I still can't believe she is still alive!!

I emailed someone on craigslist as we were getting our new beardie (from the same rescue that currently has Trinity) I was quick to text (as he left his #) and he responded pretty quick his ad read Reptile/Fish Tank he gave the dimensions and and his number that was ALL! So upon texting he informed me there was a beardie currently living in his tank (could not see it from the pic he sent looked like a tank full of drift wood) so I (being a curious george) asked for a pic of the beardie and what I got I could NEVER have even Imagined!! She (we think she is a she but she's soooooo badly malnourished you can't tell!) He told me he has had her since 2004 but never knew if it was male or female and that It (as he always referred to her as) had no name! I quickly sent the pics to my friend that owns the rescue and she told me to go pick her up but ask to pay less for the tank (as I still needed the tank and considering there was a beardie in there he was asking Waaaaay below asking price for such a large tank!) so off I went with my heat pack and towel to go get this Very Sick beardie! When I saw the tank i was in SHOCK! There were small pieces of Lego in there there was No food to be seen or water of any sort just a dried up dish with nothing in it! She was on sand and she had sand caked in her beard on her vent and stuck to her feet! There was even a poop with a balloon in it (YIKES!!!!) I just couldn't imagine how she had survived since 2004 obviously at some point he had cared right? He had the right lighting and calcium so its just plain old Starvation and Dehydration that was killing her! Several times on our drive to the rescue she I could have sworn she had passed but all of a sudden we got within 10mins of the rescue (she was over an hour away where she lived) she opened her eyes and sat up! Long story short she is still alive and is hunting and eating All on her own!! Its been 2 weeks and she seems to be doing well she was loaded with parasites but is on meds now! She hasn't gained much and to see her still is such a sad sight but she's fighting hard!! Im attaching pics of her (BEWARE IF YOU CANT HANDLE SAD PHOTOS!) I wanted to share her story with everyone even though she is not mine ( we adopted Ruby from the rescue and picked her up the day we dropped Trinity off, sucked as now the rescue has 1 more mouth to feed but are SOOOOO happy they are getting to help her!) I will try to post some pics as she starts to regain her health right now she doesn't look much better then the pics but she's feeling Waaaaay better these days!! Thanks for reading!1

(She will not be available for adoption for a very loooooong time and they do not ship outside the province of BC incase someone was wanting to inquire!)

I can't believe that some one would ever let this happen! :angry5: :banghead: Some people don't care about others and what they need, just themselves and what they want. I don't get how this guy does not feel guilty. It makes me sick to think that someone could do this! :puke:

That poor little baby. I seriously had tears in my eyes looking at that picture. How can people be so cruel? It doesn't bother them to know that the animal cannot get food for itself and it totally dependant on them? ...I don't get it. If my beardies are an hour late eating because I am late getting home from work, I feel bad about it. If I don't hold each one of them for snuggle time every day, it drives me crazy. How can such neglect be justified?
Sorry for the rant. I am so glad that baby is out of their hands and into loving ones. Good job!!!!

Well this will be my second to last update post in this thread (hopefully) Zeven is Officially gained enough weight and is healthy enough to find himself his forever home!! His foster momma has done an AMAZING job (as did the rescue in the Begining!) so he is now available for adoption and I couldn't be more thrilled!! It's truly sad to see though that just through having his basic needs met he gained sooo much weight so fast and got so healthy so its sad because I know that the previous owner literally was just wathing him die right before thier eyes!! But glad I was able to get him into the right hands and well look where he is now!! He's such a handsome man now hopefully someone can take him home and show him people aren't so scary and can be trusted!! (he spends most of his day all cranky and black beard!) so here is his official adoption pic and my next update (hopefully soon) will be that he has found his forever home!! This rescue is VERY particular when placing animals so hopefully he will find his Perfect match!! Here's his up to date pic I just can't even believe this is the 1/2 dead beardie I picked up 7mths ago that I picked up several times on my drive to the rescue thinking he had passed away on my lap! Brings tears to my eyes!! Hope you all enjoy his new pic and have enjoyed hearing his recovery story! Thanks for all the wonderful comments so Nice to hear others who feel the way I do about their pets and cruelty towards animals!!

Oh my, what a wonderful change his adopted mom did with her good care, even though he's grumpy I'm hoping he'll find his perfect match & be forever happy with his new family. I'm glad the rescue org is very particular about who adopts the beardies who are brought back from being almost dead. They deserve the very best life & treatment. Thanks to you, he gets to have a healthy life again, for if you'd not found him, he would have died. I can't tell you how grateful I am that you did find him & that through the rescue org he found a human who would take such good care of him. I wish him & you nothing but the best! :D :D

Well everyone it is with a VERY Heavy Heart that I must tell everyone Zevan passed away this am around 730am he hadnt pooped in a few days and then yesterday he pooped 2 poops and then went down hill. We are guessing kidneys or something must have failed considering how long his system had to do without we are guessing it just couldnt cope being healthy and chubby :( Its an awful ending for this poor man and his foster mom is soooo sad and feels like its her fault and I just keep reminding her that its Not her fault its his old " :angry5: owners :angry5: " fault!! She did Everything in her (and the vets) power to make him healthy again and give him a good life and she did she gave him a Wonderful life while she had him and he never would have known such love without her!! (he is also her 1st loss since starting her "dragon sanctuary" and shes really taking it hard! He was loved and well fed and became a chubby little man before his last days and in the very least at least he knew True happiness before passing!! Zevan we will miss you more then you'll ever know and we are sure you have a special place in Beardie heaven after all you've been through!! We miss you terribly already!!! :cry:
IN MEMORY OF ZEVAN 2004-2012 MAY YOU REST IN PEACE A HAPPY DRAGON!!!

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
