In a disturbing and heartbreaking report from Rescue Dogs Rock NYC earlier Tuesday afternoon, three puppies, estimated to be no more than two-weeks-old were literally “dumped” at the reception desk of one of the Georgia partner veterinarian offices. Besides having been much too young to be separated from their mother, the puppies were crawling with maggots, riddled with gashes and what they had to have endured in their short lives, is perhaps too frightening to even imagine.
According to Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, the hospital staff were in shock, as even the most stoic of doctors and technicians were drawn to tears. When one of the puppies died, they could only try to do their best to help the other tiny survivors.
“We are in shock and disbelief at how these two week old puppies could have endured such abuse to the point of near death,” Stacey posted on the organization’s Facebook page. “There were 3 puppies and one has already died, so now there are 2 fighting for their lives at this very moment. They have deep gashes all over their bodies, emaciated, skin infected and completely dehydrated with pale gums .They will need around-the-clock care to even have a chance at survival.”
No information has been released as to where these puppies came from or where their mother might be. The rescue community is being asked to help with their medical expenses.
“We cannot do this without your help,” Stacey said. “We appreciate any and all help. How could we say no and not give these little ones a chance – no matter what?”
