Greenville, South Carolina
There is little to say about a dog dubbed “Journey.” Pictures speak louder than words…a singular photo shows Journey’s long-term neglect. A singular photo shows Journey’s hopelessness. A singular photo reveals Journey’s misery.
On Wednesday, the pitiful image of Journey was posted to Facebook, along with a few words about this neglected dog, who may, or may not, live:
There is not much to say …just look at the pictures … this poor boy didn’t really have a name .. where he came from they didn’t care about him.
Journey appears to have advanced heart failure – likely the result of a heartworm infestation that his former owners failed to prevent, or address. Carmen’s Rescue has taken the lead for fundraising on behalf of Journey (click here to access the You Caring account).
Journey has been taken to a veterinary hospital for an ultrasound – it will be determined if he can be saved, or if his life of ongoing neglect will prove to be too much for Journey to survive. Regardless, Journey will be with people who care about him – who will let him know that he matters…his life matters.
Note: Animal control will be notified about this sad situation – hopefully the person who allowed this to happen will be charged.
