Check out little Elmo hiding in the bushes in an isolated area of Houston, Texas. He’s little more than a puppy, but he was thrown away and disposed of haphazardly – just like trash. No one knows where he came from; no one asked and even if he was noticed, no one seemed to care.Elmo, however was lucky; a rescuer had been alerted to his plight and animal advocate, Leslie Ysuhuaylas helped to find him over the Memorial Day weekend. And there he was; hiding in the woods behind the deep brush; shivering from fright and trying desperately to stay warm. Needless to say, he had no food or water. What does a puppy know about surviving on his own?
“Elmo is only a baby already learning the cruelty of our society,” stated Stacey Silverstein, the co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, who volunteered to accept Elmo into their organization once he was caught. “Don’t turn away … don’t avoid this post …. Instead educate and understand that Elmo is just one of the thousands upon thousands of companion animals across this country treated like disposable garbage.”
Elmo is now on his way to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC partner veterinarian where he will receive the medical attention he so desperately needs. At this time, the puppy’s physical and emotional condition is unknown, however he is safe now and his life has changed forever.
