Found roaming the streets of Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday, Quincy is another tragic tale of the plight of a shelter dog thrown away by his heartless owner as if he was an old couch. Had it not been for a Good Samaritan who called the animal shelter for help, the skeletal dog would have closed his eyes in one final breath – a gentle, sentient being left to wither and die when he was no longer wanted.quincy-rdr

When found, Quincy had been wearing his collar with identification information. Full of hope that his family had been worried about their dog, shelter staff quickly called the dog’s owner. Yes, Quincy had been missing for over a week, but the callous reply that followed just shattered hearts of even the most stoic shelter staff:

“No thanks. We don’t want him back!”

Rescue Dogs Rock NYC have stepped up to help Quincy who was reported to be in critical condition. His coat is completely matted, but beneath it all every rib sticks through the skeletal dog’s loosely draped skin; he has suffered tremendously while fighting the dropping temperatures with no shelter, food or water.

“Our hearts are shattered right now,” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue organization. “Quincy is a skeleton and he looks so sad, so weak and so defeated. Our hearts are shattered. This is so unfair.”

On Tuesday evening, Quincy was rushed to the emergency veterinarian hospital where he remains in critical condition. Donations are needed to continue helping these critical cases. Click here to donate,  or PayPal Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.

    It took more than a week for this dog to get in this bad of condition. The monster owners were neglecting him long before that. Thank you, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. You never cease to amaze me with how much you do for the dogs. The owners should be charged. Sending prayers for this special boy.

    I hope those people can never have another pet. This is terrible. Why do people get a pet if your just going to get rid of them when they get old. When you get a pet it’s a family member. You need to be their voice. I can’t imagine my life without my kitties. I had to put down my baby and it tore me apart. I’m still upset but he would of lived in pain so I had to put him down. Hardest thing I ever did.

    The Pieces of Shit had had the audacity to mistreat Quincy in this horrific fashion “ARE a SUB HUMAN SPECIES” and should be EXTERMINATED like the foul, rotten, putrid, vile, vermin they are… they do not deserve a life, let alone the chance to ruin a child, animal, or any type of living and breathing form of life!!! PULL Thru Quincy YOU DESERVE BETTER THAN TO HAVE YOUR TIME ON EARTH BE SO PAINFUL!!! MAY SOME ONE SHOW YOU WHAT LOVE AND HAPPINESS ARE!!!

    Praying this sad and starved boy gets his Christmas miracle. I hope we hear good news soon. They need to charge the people that let this happen to him. It didn’t happen in a weeks time.

    What a buf lie it take like 1 month or maybe more to get in that condition but the owners need to face some criminal charges people some times don’t deserve to have pets if you can’t have a dog don’t waste your time triying to make a dog life miserable
