Emaciated dog tossed from moving vehicle

Emaciated dog tossed out of moving car

On Saturday afternoon, someone tossed an emaciated dog out of a moving vehicle in Paterson, New Jersey. According to the no-kill organization, Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, bystanders saw a car slow down and toss out a tiny bundle of fur, before speeding off without looking back.

The rescue agency stated, ” It was hard to tell what was beneath the mats, urine soaked fur and filth.   Wrapped like a mummy in mats, this tiny creature struggled to get up, but was unable to walk.” The dog, dubbed “Grant,” was taken to the Oradell Animal Hospital.

Frannie Laurita, a shelter volunteer, told 1010 WINS. “His fur was so matted and so filthy that it was wrapped around his limbs, and it was wrapped around his face and his eyes weren’t visible.” Though Grant should weigh approximately 20 pounds, when he was first taken to the veterinarian, he weighed in at just six pounds.

On the GoFundMe account established to help this emaciated dog, the rescuers described Grant’s first moments after being saved:

All you could see was his nose and tongue through the mats, and as he heard a kind voice, an amazing thing happened.  This sweet little creature moved towards us and gave kisses.  He was stumbling over from the weight of his mats and weakness of his body, yet he yearned to love and be loved.

Now, the local authorities are hoping to find whoever is responsible for throwing this dog out of the vehicle – whoever is responsible could face multiple charges, including abandoning an animal reported CBS New York.
