Two skeletal dogs, on the brink of death, were dumped in Penn Pine Park in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, days ago. The dogs, dubbed “Layla,” and “Gracie,” are believed to be cast offs from dog-fighting. Someone apparently no longer wanted or needed the pair so they dumped them and left them for dead.
On September 4, Justice Rescue wrote:
Pitbull mixes were used to fight, starved to below 50% of their normal body weight and abused repeatedly. They are skeletons.
When will it stop? Layla and Gracie are just babies at approximately 2 years old and we can’t even imagine what they have suffered in their young lives. What kind of person does this? We are heartbroken.
Russ Harper, founder of the rescue agency, described the dogs’ pitiful condition in the Philly Inquirer:
“One of the dogs was laying lateral, not moving. All she could do was blink her eyes. She was the coldest dog I ever felt that was still alive. She was literally on the brink of death.”
As of Wednesday, a reward of $1500 has been offered for information reported directly to Justice Rescue leading to their conviction. If you have ANY information about the person responsible for this, call 215-942-6363 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
