In South Texas, a disturbing act of animal abuse occurred late last week as rescuers reported a dog had been thrown in front of a piece of moving farm machinery. As a result of the intentional cruelty, the dog’s belly had been ripped open exposing his intestines, witnessed literally falling out of his body. When told of the egregious situation, an animal rescuer rushed to the dog’s aid and transported him to an emergency veterinarian hospital. 

“This dog was just found with his intestines dragging behind him and him starting to chew on them! This was intentionally done to him! He has puncture wounds, and the vet thinks he was picked up by machinery! We are desperately needing donations to get him into surgery! The vet cannot start surgery without $2400 put down!!! Even if I put everything I have it won’t be enough! Please help donate!,” posted Leslie Ysuhuaylas on her Facebook page as she cried out for help on Friday afternoon.

Knowing that Leslie needed a rescue organization to financially support the life saving surgery the dog dubbed Roman needed, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC was asked to help.

“Roman’s rescuer (Leslie) was scrambling for help and reached out to us to see if we could help. Of course, we could not let Roman die because of lack of funds,” stated Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the organization, who often takes the most serious cases of abuse, neglect and cruelty under their wing.

That day, Roman had successful surgery to repair his “gutted” intestines and is now reported to resting comfortably at the Animal Medical Center of McAllen. There have been no suspects reported. His care adds up to more than $2,400. To help save more dogs just like Roman, please

    I say to throw the POS in front of a semi or a train. Poor Roman – that had to be terrifying. I hope he can make a full recovery.

    I always like to hear a vet won’t perform “life saving” surgery until they have the money! God bless Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, I don’t know where many of these cases would end up if it weren’t for them! This poor dog, they need to find the monster that did this to him and THEY are the ones who should foot the Vet bill then they can spend some time in jail to think about what they did!

    I’m shocked that Roman survived! No suspects reported? How’s that when he was thrown into the machinery? Assholes!

  4. Kathleen Drude says:

    Human beings are disgusting! Why would you do such a thing? The answer is simple because some humans not all think animals are to be abused! In these situations it’s not easy finding the thing who injured Roman! Thank you to the rescue group who stepped up with the money needed for Romans surgery!

    Heartbreaking and Horrific!!! This poor innocent dog suffered agonizing pain, horrific abuse, despicable torture, terror, and profound betrayal! Sweet Roman, I am praying for your speedy and complete recovery physically and emotionally, and also that you are placed in a loving and caring forever home where you will live a safe, healthy and happy life. I hope and pray that the authorities locate the disgusting evil monster that did this horrific abuse and is severely punished! That evil monster is extremely dangerous and WILL continue to abuse, injure and kill helpless innocent animals. We must be the voice for defenseless animals. This poor innocent dog deserves justice. Throw that soulless scumbag abuser in prison and throw away the key!!! ????

    Whoever did this to Roman definitely needs a quick trip thru the wood chipper – deserves every bit of pain imaginable.
