An emaciated dog nearly died while in the “care” of a neglectful owner. On Monday, the KC Pet Project introduced its Facebook followers to “King,” who was rescued from his home:

King was rushed to our shelter Friday afternoon after Kansas City, MO Animal Control rescued him from the backyard of a very cruel and neglectful home. Bitterly cold temperatures, strangulation, and starvation had nearly taken his life.

According to the animal welfare organization, King was unconscious when he was found – he was barely breathing after he was caught up in something on a fence and nearly strangled to death. The group wrote, “His cold body began having seizures and his organs had begun to fail.”

King was provided with I.V. fluids and warming therapy – he eventually regained consciousness and his thumping tail alerted those caring for him that he was fighting to live. The group advised:

He’s been receiving ‘round-the-clock emergency care from our shelter’s veterinary team this weekend and our partners at BluePearl Veterinary Partners have been providing his overnight care. He’s now able to stand and walk a little, giving kisses to our staff and eating a little on his own.

King is not yet out of the woods, but now that he is out of harm’s way – he stands a chance. Donations for King’s care can be made at this link.

    Keeping KIng in our prayers, I hope the people that let him get in this shape are charged with cruelty, they need to pay for what they have done.
