Dog’s face and the desperate look in his eyes plead for help

Chester is the tragic face of dog fighting. The desperate look in his eyes pleaded for help; surely the monsters who subjected this innocent victim to hell never cared. Surely the monsters who subjected this innocent victim to this hell never loved a dog. Odds are he was used as a bait dog.

And on Thursday afternoon, a rescue volunteer walked into a rural Texas shelter and knew Chester deserved more than an untimely death. From the moment the rescuer entered the dog’s kennel, he slowly approached her as he left a trail of blood behind him. For once in a long, long time, Chester felt a soft human touch, and then he slowly retreated back into the corner of his cage and began to lick and tend to his wounds. When contacted, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped up; co-founder Stacey Silverstein explained the situation on the organization’s Facebook page. She could not refuse to help:

  “He had lived through this before, injured with puncture wounds from dog fighting. Chester was covered in blood. He was covered in scars. His body told us his past and through his eyes showed us his pain.”

Chester has been rushed in for emergency medical treatment. Let’s hope this poor dog survives. To help with this latest case of extreme abuse and cruelty, donations for the dog’s care can be made by clicking here or PayPal at donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.

      It is banned here in the US but people participate in it any way. Until people start reporting dog fighting rings it will continue. This poor baby deserves justice.

    HATE DOES NOT EVEN TOUCH WHAT I FEEL FOR ANYONE WHO IN INVOLVED IN DOG FIGHTING. You are involved if you participate, raise dogs for this, steel dogs for this on KNOW ANYONE who participates in dog fighting…. anyone near this situation and does not report it…. you are as guilty as the abusers.
    You will all rot in hell for it, God created dogs to be loved, be our companions and our protectors.

    I used to follow the Dog News Examiner before it shut down. About 75% of the animal cruelty articles were about TX and FL. These two states are the worst in terms of having a backward “It’s Just a Dog” mentality. Disgusting.

    I have come to hate this world because of all the cruelty. I know God did not intend this but we humans have corrupted it to this pitiful condition. When you see ways to help, please do. And please don’t contribute to the hurt. Be a voice for kindness, goodness and love for all God’s creatures.

      You know im not a violent person, however this puts a urge to commit violence to those hurting these voiceless.
      I am a small lady , not long ago i found my self beating the fuck out of a man twice my size with a mag light. . for kicking a puppy i was trying to save. THERE WAS NO THOUGHT ON MY PART JUST REACTION. I had never actted like this before and i am now sure i would again react the same way…lucky for me after his hospitalization he did not remember what happen .. But why should i be afraid for defending . thats in part whats wrong today with the world… Dont do as i did , but do something dont stand by and do nothing….

    I hate the abuse these poor babies are subject to! This needs to stop, long jail time and huge fines! The ones caught should have to help care for these abused dogs while in prison. Maybe they might become more of a human instead of an unfeeling thug.

    What is it that humans have to corrupt innocence! Animals are innocent and they would not indulge in this of their own volition! Humans are the root of this disgusting spectacle! To look in Chesters eyes is to see the horror of what this poor little kid went thru! You see the desperation and hope that he won’t be subjected to being attacked again! Dog fighting has to be eradicated! Those who promote this debacle need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!

    Ok, what the heck, why didn’t someone from the shelter, bother to clean him up. My lord where is the compassion for these animals. I hope they catch this guy and beat the shit out of him. I hope he has nightmares for the rest of his rotten evil life.and knows why he has them. Prayer with love for this poor baby to recover and find a caring loving home.

    Crying I feel his pain he probably doesn’t know why this happened to him. I pray he finds his safe forever loving home and that he never again knows or feels hurt again.

    What gets me the most isthis poor sweet soul was sitting in this God for saken shelter and left to die in this condition. No one at the shelter bothered to tend to him or get him to a vet for help. If the rescue volunteer had not walked through when he/she did and saw that this baby was in dire neer of medical care, he would have layed there in pain and suffered until he died or they euthanized him. Case in point where laws need a definite overhaul.

    How the hell can they leave him bleeding like that? What is wrong with them! Even basic medical treatment to stop the bleeding would be beneficial. That shelter is no better then the humans who did this to him, how can they allow him to suffer like that! They need to be shut down and charged with gross abuse.

    I don’t understand why there isn’t a federal law banning dog fighting. Dog fighting should be a felony period.

    Chester is just one of the many dogs/cats used by these maggots as bait – Chester deserves a safe loving home where he can thrive. What I don’t and will never understand is how ANY shelter, rural or urban, could just leave any animal in pain with obvious wounds to languish without at least giving some first aid. ANYONE involved in dogfighting, be it participating or promoting should be hogtied and dumped in the nearest landfill with the rest of the garbage – they have no right to ever take another breath.

    Ok so now everyone knows there is a dog fighting ring close by to where this sweet baby was made to fight….I think the police & FBI need to be scouring the area…..there must be a blood trail to follow….use blood hounds or whatever it takes…..Dog fighting needs to be a federal crime & the people involved locked away for a long time…..I bet if they talked to previous dog fighter that have been caught or people they know……they know where the dog fighting is going on…..these people have got to be shut down.
    But please let’s all pray for this precious baby for total healing, both physical & emotional…this world is getting worse and worse.
