Five starving dogs were left inside of an abandoned trailer home in Charlestown, Indiana by their owners. Without forethought or compassion, the starving dogs were left to fend for themselves in a vacant home with no food or water after the owners were evicted.
The frightened black Labrador retrievers are now receiving emergency care through the Arrow Fund located in Louisville, Kentucky. Two of the dogs in satisfactory condition are being cared for at Animal Control. The other three severely emaciated dogs have been transferred to the Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital. According to the organization’s Facebook page, the three dogs now dubbed Phoebe, Prudence and Piper were so dehydrated, veterinarians could not draw blood until the dogs were administered fluids. Their bodies were all rated as a “1” – the lowest number an animal can be classified and still be alive.
Donations and foster homes are needed. Donations can be made on the organization’s website at thearrowfund.org; checks can be mailed to The Arrow Fund P.O. Box 11127 Prospect , Kentucky 40059 . Foster applications are on the website as well. Updates will follow. Please be the voices for those who cannot speak.
