In Columbus City, North Carolina, had it not been for a Good Samaritan who found a stray, tortured puppy left to die in a ditch, Rayna would have been another tragic statistic of animal cruelty and abuse. Just ten-months old, no one knows how long she languished on the side of the road before a compassionate person stopped to embrace a defenseless puppy left to die and immediately transported her to the nearby shelter.
When Rescue Dogs Rock NYC were called by the shelter for assistance, co-founder Stacey Silverstein wasted no time, and with the aid of nearby volunteers and advocates, transported Rayna to the organization’s partner veterinarian hospital for emergency treatment. On the rescue organization’s Facebook page, Stacey tearfully described Rayna’s situation:
“We immediately got a call to help as Rayna is in very critical condition. Besides her medical condition, this baby’s mental condition is also at risk, as she’s completely withdrawn from all human contact … As if to say ‘I just can’t go on any longer.’ Rayna is only 10 months old. We must turn her life around at this very moment by giving her top notch medical care and tons of TLC and human affection. Her condition is very poor.”
Rayna’s medical and emotional status will continue to be updated by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. For now, donations are needed to help this dog receive the best help available. Donations can be made by clicking here. Direct paypal: Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org
