This week, good Samaritans found a badly beaten dog abandoned by a Philadelphia dumpster. The Philadelphia Animal Hospital, which has been treating the injured dog, advised Facebook followers about the animal cruelty case on Wednesday.

The following photo is hard to look at but is very important.
This is a severe dog abuse case we are currently treating at Philadelphia Animal Hospital. Two wonderful people brought this dog to us when they found him tied to a dumpster and badly beaten, and we are taking every measure to ensure he gets well.
The dog has been named “Charlie,” and he is described as a “very sweet dog.” Right now, Charlie is in stable condition and the veterinary hospital has advised potential donors that no aid on Charlie’s behalf is being accepted. The hospital stated, “We will not be directly accepting donations for his care, as we are covering all medical expenses for him as a hospital.”
“anyone interested in making donations can provide them to the City of Elderly Love: Save a Senior Pet, who not only provide care and foster homes to older pets but will also be arranging the post-care accommodations for Charlie.”
The Animal Hospital commented on animal cruelty in general:
It’s a terrible tragedy when innocent animals are treated in such a way, and we recognize that this is not an isolated incident. Your support as a community, for organizations just like The City of Elderly Love, is what helps Philadelphia take steps in getting animals all the care they need.
