Someone threw away an ailing young dog in a Raytown, Missouri, dumpster and now, a reward has been offered for information leading to whoever is responsible for the heartless act of cruelty. The pup, dubbed Iris, was found in one of the dumpsters behind a shopping complex at 5242 Blue Ridge Boulevard, reported Fox 4 KC.
Iris has obviously been badly neglected for a long time – she is suffering from a multitude of issues, including mange, secondary skin infections and anemia. Iris has been taken under the wing of the Midwest Animal Resq.
On October 28, the rescue group updated Facebook followers about the puppy’s condition:
Thank you for all the inquiries regarding Iris, the sweet dog found in the dumpster. She is still in the hospital, and received a blood transfusion today. She has a long tough road ahead, and we are grateful for your support.
The most recent update on Iris’ condition states:
Iris update: Her red blood cell count is still very low, and her infections are not under control yet. She is taking treats like a champ, and curled up in my lap for a cuddle. She will be in the hospital all week, and received another blood transfusion today.
According to the rescue group, a reward of $5000 is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for this crime.
