Someone wrapped two dogs inside of a plastic bag and left them in the parking lot of a New Haven, Connecticut, Target. According to Wednesday’s WTNH News, someone spotted the dogs on Monday and brought them to a local animal shelter before the unthinkable happened.
The dogs were examined by a veterinarian who determined that they had been neglected before they were abandoned at the parking lot. Both of the dogs were severely infested with fleas, one has a heart murmur and both are suffering from advanced dental disease.
The abandoned dogs now have names, Amelia and Dharma, and they are receiving much needed care through the Animal Haven Inc. rescue agency. On August 16, the rescue group updated Facebook followers about the dogs:
Dharma and Amelia have a little way to go due to neglect and being found in a plastic bag left in a parking lot! However they are being examined today and obviously look pretty content with less itching and having full bellies ❤️🐾❤️❤️ They have severe dental disease, are not spayed, serious flea infestation, and poor lack of nutrition which has resulted in walking badly. Thank you to the amazing team at Guilford Animal Medical Center
Donations for these neglected dogs can be made at this link to the rescue group’s website.
