A rescue agency in New York is shocked and outraged by the dismal condition of a dog who was recently brought to them for care. On Tuesday, Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs introduced Facebook followers to Jasmine.
The rescue group wrote, “We are just shocked and completely outraged at the sheer abuse that this poor dog has suffered at the hands of humans. We can not imagine the pain that this sweet girl has gone through, day after day, her wire collar and attached wire cable that was used to tie her outside 24-7, grew deeper and deeper into her neck, eating at her flesh and causing a festering infection that collected green pus to bubble her skin around her neck.”
Authorities were alerted to Jasmine’s suffering by concerned neighbors who reached out for help. The rescue group stated, “We have taken on many embedded collar cases, but Jasmines is definitely one of the worst we have encountered. When the animal control officer cut the cable that bound Jasmine to her hell on earth, Jasmine actually wagged her tail, and was very cooperative to be carried out of that house of horrors.”
In order to free Jasmine from the painful cable, she had to be sedated at an emergency veterinarian – today, her neck is free of the cutting cable and she can begin her long road to recovery.
The rescue agency is collecting donations to help provide Jasmine with continued veterinary care – click here to read more.
