On Sunday, a Good Samaritan found eight neglected dogs abandoned in a remote, gravel parking lot that had been locked inside of a crate secured with zip lock ties in the Richmond area of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. According to CtvNews, the dogs had been left to die near a trash receptacle. dhana-metta-rescue

“It does tug at your heart. You just feel so sorry for them. I mean they were crammed into a crate. They stunk. They were dirty. But friendly. They just wanted out,” said Pat Heineky who found the crate on his way home from work.dhana-metta-3

Heineky brought all of the neglected dogs to the Dhana Metta Rescue Society where they were all bathed and cleaned up. It is not known how long the dogs had been sitting in the crate, but they all reeked of having sat in their own feces and urine. At their first veterinarian examination, two of the dogs limped because of untreated broken bones and one of the dogs had serious dental issues. Now all of them are resting comfortably and dhana-metta-4reported to be very social and sweet. It is not known who the dogs belonged to or why anyone could have just abandoned them.

As to their breeds, the rescue updated the status of the little ones on Wednesday:

    The POS used zip ties because he/she wanted to make dang sure those dogs would not work their way out of the crate. He/she wanted all of the dogs to die in there which is also why he/she put the crate in a very remote location. I’m very thankful for the Good Samaritan who found them. Come on, Karma, do your thing on the a$$hole who made those dogs suffer.

    It is people like this I would like five minutes with – it wouldn’t be pretty and I guarantee it would be painful – I HATE ANIMAL ABUSE.

    They are 6 of the LUCKY ONES that were found in time:::: Just think of how long it COULD have been before a Good Person came and released them!!!! They could have starved or roasted !!!! Just a thought but they all had been spayed so maybe they belonged to an Elder who passed and they family members dumped them WITHOUT a moments REMORSE!!!!
