Imagine a suffering dog unable to stand or walk left on the side of a road completely at the mercy of those humans who walked or drove past him? Tragically that was the heartbreaking fate of Quinn on Thursday afternoon; an abandoned dog found in Anson County, North Carolina until animal control took him to the local shelter. When contacted, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC quickly came to the dog’s assistance and rushed to the organization’s veterinarian partner for emergency life-saving help.

“Our medical team determined he was not only dragged by a car but also full of buckshot! He was swollen, infected, crawling with maggots and unable to stand or walk.,” Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue organization posted on Facebook. “He was a mess! He laid on the side of the road at the mercy of humans. Would he be helped or not? Finally Animal Services arrived.”

When first examined, veterinarians discovered the huge open wound under one arm; it was badly infected and crawling with maggots. How Quinn even ended up where he was discovered is unknown – considering he couldn’t move. His front leg is completely mutilated; there is doubt it can be saved. Meanwhile an innocent dog fights for his life and no one came forward to claim him as their lost, beloved pet.

    Some people are just disgusting and evil. I hope whoever hurt this dog gets street justice. This person(s) should feel the hurt and pain inflicted on this poor pup!

    Now you know why I prefer animals over HUMANS. Anyone who can do this to a dog doesn’t deserve to breath our clean air. Find them and introduce them to a firing squad. No loss there.

    Heartbreaking!! I can’t even begin to comprehend the pain Quinn has endured!! Nothing I hate more than animal abusers…..NOTHING!!!!

    Is it any wonder nobody came forward to claim the poor dog? They don’t want to have to “pay” for their neglect. Most likely someone shot their dog and they just let it loose to fend for it’s self. I pray for this baby and bless Rescue Dogs Rock NYC again, for going above and beyond for these unfortunate pets!

    May whoever did this to Quinn get a MASSIVE dose of vigilante justice – SOMEONE knows who did this and will probably not turn them in BUT there is hopefully also someone who will seek street justice for Quinn – I hope he recovers from this vile cruelty and finds the safe loving home he obviously never had.

    Il faut éliminer toute cette vermine, ces consanguins, se sont des parasites pour la société. Pas de pitié pour les barbares.
