Someone abandoned a sickly puppy – leaving her to die alone in a Styrofoam container in Miami, Florida. The details surrounding how the pup, dubbed “Harley,” was found are recounted on a fundraiser which has been set up to help cover her veterinary expenses.

Harley was found in an alleyway tucked inside a cooler that was filthy inside. Harley was left next to a garbage bin, discarded like trash. Harley had no water and there was only some rotting food sitting inside the cooler next to her. Harley was trembling and clearly in  distress. Whoever had Harley before we rescued her severely neglected her & had no regard for her life. Harley is completely terrified and her skin is in horrific condition. She has several open sores throughout her body and 90% of her coat has fallen off! She has to be coaxed to eat because of how fearful she is at this moment.

Harley was rescued by Miami Beach police officers who were summoned by concerned citizens. Currently, the badly neglected puppy is recuperating from her many maladies at a veterinary hospital. Undoubtedly, her road to recovery, both physically and emotionally, will be long.

    So sad. The vile person who dumped Harley in the trash bin must be found and punished. Harley didn’t get this way over night. After neglecting Harley, the POS owner probably thought it was easier to throw her away than taking her to a vet and incur the medical cost. Not having the funds to pay for Harleys medical care is no excuse, there are options the owner can take, but rather throw Harley away.

    Unfortunately, the owner of this dog will never be found but thanks to her rescuers, her life will change for the better. Hope she heals quickly and gets adopted into a loving home.

    Such a cruel World, that this little precious puppy has encountered, but it looks like things are getting better. I am waiting on a pay check, but as soon as I have it, I will happily donate. Bless this little one.

    If this was a human child the outcry would be overwhelming and the abuser would be sitting in jail – BUT since it is a canine child it appears that it is of little concern – this puppy was thankfully rescued BUT I feel that since there will be little to no investigation as to who dumped her. I feel animal abuse is as cruel and vile as child abuse since it is cruelty to those who are innocent, defenseless and have no voice. The maggot shit that did this to Harley definitely deserves a mega dose of street justice since that may be the ONLY justice Harley gets.
