On the evening following the heartbreaking story of Caleb, a tortured puppy fighting for his life in Atlanta, Georgia, comes the plight of SweetPea; another innocent victim of neglect and abuse – and once again saved by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.
When SweetPea’s former owner moved out of their trailer, no one thought twice about the welfare of their one-year-old dog. She was left to starve and suffer in a rural area of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Fortunately someone found her, and volunteers reached out to the rescue organization’s co-founder Stacey Silverstein for emergency help.
“Volunteers found her in this condition and immediately transported her away to safety and reached out to us to see if we could help SweetPea,” stated Stacey. “Sadly SweetPea has endured horrific long term suffering at only a year old. She is a skeleton; she is limping and appears to be in pain. We had her rushed to a vet where X-rays were completed which show no broken bones. We do not know at this point why SweetPea cannot walk properly.”
In a few days, SweetPea will be transferred to New York City where she will receive the specialized treatment she needs. She is barely out of her puppy stage and has endured great pain. Her brief video can be viewed here:
