Lukey who lived life of abuse will not be statistic at Texas kill shelter

Lukey lived a life of torture and abuse; his suffering is all too evident in his malnourished and weakened appearance. And then he was brought into a rural Texas shelter this week, where many dogs have no chance of ever seeing the light of a new day. Most are euthanized and few are adopted; there’s little funding and barely any staff to keep up with the intake numbers; those sentient beings who have been dumped or abandoned by their  irresponsible owners.  Lukey cover

Lukey, however will not be a statistic. Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC had been asked to help, and if at all possible she rarely refuses. A dog, who has lived a life of pain and fear and has been so abused and neglected, now has a chance. He has been transferred to the rescue’s partner veterinarian hospital in Dallas where he is receiving emergency care; his condition is listed as critical.

On Facebook, Jackie updated the dog’s condition:

“Lukey has been abused and neglected for so long; he has spiraled into what you see here in these photos and video. He has lived a life of pain and fear. Even though he is suffering, can’t see due to his infected eyes, malnourished and weak, he remains sweet gentle and affectionate and trusting of all humans and other dogs; an incredible testament to Lukeys pureness and goodness.”

Updates as to Lukey’s health will follow. To donate to this sweet dog’s care, please click here, or directly to pay pal Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.

    My heart goes,out to this poor pup, what a horrible life he had, I pray he finds a good living home, and he has a good recovery. I also pray for the idiots who owned him, that they have a life of no peace in their heart, mind and soul and full of nightmares for the rest of their misable life.

      I’ve donated to her group once and I intend to do it again. I’ve also named her rescue group as the beneficiary of a small IRA that I have.

    Bless Rescue Dog Rocks NYC, another precious pup saved from being euthanized. Prayers for Lukey, the people allowing this to happen to these precious pups need to be found and prosecuted.

    People have lost respect for God and ALL He created. One day….pay back time!!! He who mock God WILL pay the price for sure. Animals belong to God NOT to humans!!

    My blood boils when I read this kind of disgusting abuse!! Our laws are not tough enough and until the courts start making these people examples of what punishments will come if you abuse animals, the abuse will only continue! I was a Trump supporter in the election, but if I continue to see his administration remove animal welfare information from the Government’s site, I will not be a supporter for long!!!

    So many truths submitted above. I echo those sentiments wholeheartedly. “Dogs are just too good for this world”
    I don’t understand people who don’t see them for the wonderful creatures that they are. God bless the rescuers.

    Please let me know about Luckey, his health and if he has a home to go to. Thank you! He tugs at my heart! I have a rescue dog & cat. I’ve always had pets that were rescued & believe that it is the right thing to do. I had a blind dog for 10yrs until I had to put him down due to terminal illness in October. It broke my heart! I have loved each one &miss them all!
