On Sunday evening, Trey’s life was clearly destined to end. No one knows for sure what happened to the Golden retriever stray, but an animal control officer found him scrounging for food behind someone’s outbuilding south of Dallas, Texas. Emaciated and in pain, the abused dog was brought to the shelter, fed and given a safe place to sleep.
It’s a country shelter in Texas that has no funds and barely any staff. Volunteers graciously help to save lives. All of the dogs are terrified and rightfully so – they are brought into a concrete building where the barking and whines of other dogs only exacerbates their fright, and Trey was no exception. Both his front and back legs have been mangled. He had a difficult time walking, but didn’t want to give up. His skin was raw and infected, and he was weak and extremely dehydrated. It would have been highly unlikely anyone would have come to his rescue, but thanks to social media, Trey’s last minute plea was answered by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.
“Trey deserves this chance, a chance to receive the help he so desperately needs. We have no information on how or why Trey was left in this condition. We cannot watch and do nothing,” explained Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization.
“Trey will need multiple surgeries. He will be rushed to our partner veterinarian hospital for life saving medical treatment. We are concerned with his survival.”
On Monday morning, Stacey updated Pet Rescue Report that Trey will be transported to New York City this week for surgery. Along with all of his other medical problems, he tested heart worm positive. This is a dog who has a long road ahead of him, but Rescue Dogs Rock NYC do not give up, and will fight to give this boy a new life.
