In Reiglewood, North Carolina a white bulldog was shot, bludgeoned and left to die. According to Animal Control, the dog was discovered near the Bladen County line and had been shot through the head and beaten with a blunt object.
When discovered, the four-year-old sweet dog dubbed Kimber, was just lying on the side of the road with blood pouring out of the top of her head and eye. She was immediately brought to the shelter’s veterinarian for emergency help. Shelter staff notified Rescue Dogs Rock NYC asking for help.
“Why would a human being hurt Kimber so brutally? Why do evil people like this exist in our world? Why does this happen?,” asked co-founder of the rescue organization, Jackie O’Sullivan on the group’s Facebook page. “We can only pick up the shattered pieces of the dogs who need us most and try to help them. This is why we are here. This is why we exist … to help the Voiceless.”
Kimber has been transferred to the organization’s emergency partner veterinarian and will need a CT scan to determine the extent of the head and eye injuries she has sustained. Just walking in the door, Kimber’s initial veterinarian bill is estimated to be $1,000. Please help this fine organization – they have taken in an extraordinary amount of emergency cases these last few weeks.
Joey Prince, supervisor of Animal Control is calling this act of cruelty a “horrible case” and is asking for the public’s help identifying the person(s) who tortured this dog. Anyone with information is asked to contact 910.641.3945.
