In a very disturbing discovery Saturday morning in south Texas, five puppies were found abandoned in a basket on the side of the road. Next to the screaming puppies was their mother; she had been left in a plastic container with her feet bound with a bungee cord. A black garbage bag had covered the mother dog’s view of her puppies. All she could do was listen to their desperate cries.
It is not known how long the family had been left outdoors in the direct sun and 100 degree heat. No food or water was available; fortunately a Good Samaritan spotted the dogs on the side of the road and contacted a rescuer for help. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC has stepped forward and arranged for the dogs to be transported to an emergency veterinary hospital.
Since arriving at the emergency facility, the mother dog has been reported to be little more than a pile of bones and is unable to move. Two of the babies left in the basket have died. All of the dogs are covered in fleas, ticks and are critically dehydrated.
“How do we live in a world with such disregard for a living being?,” asked Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization as she posted the shocking photos of the intentional neglect and cruelty done to a litter of blameless puppies. “This innocent family deserves everything we can give them.”
