Two weeks ago, a dog dubbed “Caci” was beaten and left to die. The smokey gray pit bull’s head was unimaginably swollen – nobody knows for sure what happened to Caci, but there have been reports that her severe injuries are the result of being beaten with a bat.

Fortunately, much has changed for Caci – in the time that has passed since the painful day that she was discovered, the swelling in her head has all but disappeared. On April 15, New York Bully Crew, the rescue agency which has stepped up to raise funds for her ongoing veterinary care, updated Facebook followers about Caci’s current condition:

It is DAY 13 of treatment. #Caci is getting Wet to Dry dressing changes as part of her wound care. This aids in the debridement and removal of the dead skin and in turn promotes healing. Caci’s necrotic, dead tissue from her injuries is falling off as it should, but it leaves huge open wounds. These wounds still need to be cleaned and treated daily with dressing changes so infection doesn’t set in. She still has a road ahead of her, but we will all be beside #Caci on her journey!!
Thank you to all that have prayed, supported and contributed to Caci’s wellbeing thus far. Your well wishes have carried her along this past week.

The goal is to move Caci from her current location in Puerto Rico, to New York – but she must continue to recover before the transport can happen. To help support Caci’s ongoing treatment, donations are being collected here.

    Who in their right mind would do this to a Poor Defenseless Dog should be put in Prison for a very long time. I hope and Pray that they find the POS that done this.

    • Cindy Becker says:

      John, I am to the point that prison as punishment isn’t harsh enough for these POS that hurt animals and children. Let the people take the punishment into their own hands.

      • Doreen says:

        Maybe prison plus someone beating their head in the same way and dump him somewhere…it is disgusting how people treat animals today it just brings tears to my eyes…I really wondering what are we showing the youth of today?!?!

      • Nancy Raymond says:

        I agree w/you, Cindy, 100% – prison sentences are no more than a slap on the hand imposed by judges who consider animal cruelty as seriously as littering – these bastards should be given to those who care about animals and let the punishment fit the crime. I would sign up for that in a heartbeat.

      • Rev. Dr. Yvonne Ray says:

        We need to all call, write and/or email our state representatives and senators and urge them to pass much tougher animal abuse laws. Then we have to hold judges accountable to enforce laws.

  2. Tracy Whitcomb says:

    The assholes responsible for thus needs to have the same thing done to them and then thrown under the prison.

  3. Kathleen Drude says:

    This is disgusting, thank the doctors and this amazing dog for having the will to live and the ability to heal! Good for you little one!

      I do recall a vet made a comment from Caci’s previous post when found that he did not believe it was a head trauma, but, an infection.

    • Diana Bradshaw says:


      • Rev. Dr. Yvonne Ray says:

        Evil people who do this are most likely so sold out to Satan that they will never repent and accept a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. So, I reiterate, we don’t have to pray they will go to hell. Their rejection of Jesus Christ will send them there. But their wicked deeds on earth will determine their degree of punishment in hell. I’d like to see them punished on earth as well.

    Filthy coward bastard to beat an innocent dog this badly the face is almost indistinguishable
    How terribly tragic and sad
    I would pay to have a baseball bat and the asshole who did this would feel pain like he has never experienced in lif life

  5. Rev. Dr. Yvonne Ray says:

    The King James Bible – God’s very words and his instruction manual for our lives – tells us that hell will enlarge itself. Part of the reason for that is obviously to contain subhuman children of Satan who would dare harm God’s innocent creatures – the most vulnerable among us.

      • Rev. Dr. Yvonne Ray says:

        Thanks for responding before I had a chance to. At least one vet believes the dog was not beaten at all but that this was simply a massive and fast spreading infection. I hope that is the case and this poor dog wasn’t also beaten.

    I love NY Bully Crew,a rescue that I follow. They save a lot of dogs from Puerto Rico! Praying healing prayers of love for Caci
