‘Dog on a chain here dying’: New York City rescue group comes to aid of desperate puppy

On Saturday afternoon, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC received a desperate plea to save an abandoned dog found tied to a chain brought to a rural Tifton, Georgia shelter.

“There’s a dog on a chain here dying if you want to come get him. He’s emaciated, covered in fleas, can’t stand or walk and his gums are white,” was the tragic message.

Unfortunately rural shelters do not have the money to treat emergency cases and without an approved rescue organization stepping forward to help, the dog would have to be humanely euthanized. And with no hesitation, Jackie O’Sullivan, the co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, made immediate arrangements to transfer the dog they dubbed “Bear” to the nearest emergency veterinarian hospital.

“We will not stand by and let him die,” Jackie posted on Facebook notifying advocates what had just happened. “He deserves better and he will get better. This is not okay – not by a long shot.”

When Bear arrived at the hospital,  his red blood cell count was extremely low and had he not been given a life saving blood transfusion on Saturday night, he would have died by Sunday morning. Bear was so anemic and dehydrated, staff veterinarians had difficulty finding a vein for intravenous support. Early this morning, Bear began to eat and was able to stand for a short time; all good signs. The sweet dog continues his fight to live.

      I am right with you Elaine, anyone that mistreats, abuses any animal needs a HUGE dose of street justice. Having no faith in ANY justice system in this country regarding animal abuse I’d love to see these maggots go face to face with a bunch of us that DO care and see them get the real punishment they deserve. That would be fair.

Yet we as group members have no choice in being browbeat by a religious Zealot when more than half the readers have requested it stop!!!! HUM!!

    This world is do disgusting and Georgia you too the list right now!

    When will the cruelty of the “Human Monsters” in our world be stopped forever. How can someone leave such a sweetheart of a puppy chained to slowly die. If I could I would adopt all abused dogs and cats.

    Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is one of the best rescues in the USA, in my opinion. I’m sure they have to say “no” occasionally but I think it’s about 1 out of 10,000 times.

    Rescue Dogs Rock NYC goes above and beyond to help any animal anywhere – they deserve a stand ovation for their dedication and continued excellent work to help all animals. I truly hope Bear fully recovers and gets the safe loving home he so well deserves and never had. And to the hunk of sewer slime that left him to die, let the punishment fit the crime and they are found dying a slow death in the gutter and no one cares.

    Way to go stepping in to save Bear! It never fails to depress me, the simple fact that the majority of humans suck and have no business going near any animal! Its a sad statement on human beings and life on this planet! Man is arrogant believes himself to be the sole reason to be alive and survive on this planet! Wrong but hey far be it for me to stop mans descent into the abyss!
