A dog surrendered to a Texas animal shelter was in such poor condition that his rescuers cried. The dog, “Ace,” was taken in at the Harris County Animal Shelter and volunteers for the facility wrote:

The second we saw Ace’s intake photo on petharbor Saturday night, we knew he was in bad shape; little did we know just how bad off he was. We asked our volunteer to get a video of him the next day, and as soon as we read he was an “owner surrender” in such horrific condition, our heart broke into a million pieces.


When Ace was picked up from the shelter, his rescuer broke down in tears over the condition his was in.

Ace has since been taken under the wing of Legends of the Paws Animal Rescue – the agency updated Facebook followers about the dismal condition of their new charge:

Tuesday late afternoon. This poor guy has endured more abuse and neglect then one would think imaginable. It is confirmed that he is only three years old. It is possible that he indeed had acid or other chemical burns. In addition he has dem mange, fungal and bacteria infections. He has had dead skin cleaned off, injections, antibiotics. It is unknown if his eyes can be saved.

It is unthinkable that this dog has been suffering – unimaginable that he was surrendered to a kill facility in this pitiful condition.

Ace is at a veterinary hospital receiving care – his rescuers wrote:

He will be hospitalized for an indeterminate about of time at this point. If you can help Ace’s medical cost it would be greatly appreciated and much needed. The rescue PayPal is ,, please be sure to note the donation for Ace (friends/family).

    Some people are just plain evil who enjoy the suffering they inflict on living animals. There’s no other explanation for Ace’s physical condition. I’m surprise the person who surrendered Ace was not charged for animal cruelty. Perhaps that person was not the owner. Nonetheless, the shelter should have at least questioned how Ace wind up in such an awful condition. Hope for Ace’s speedy recovery and that he will find a loving family

    Thank you Legends of the Paws Animal Rescue for helping Ace. This is a clear case of abuse and the ones that “surrendered” Ace to the “kill” shelter need to be charged with animal abuse! Why is this NOT being done?

    More than ONE HALF of TEXAS would be arrested for abuse issues SO I think the authorities just turn their heads& Look the other wasy!!!

      Yes Texas keeps on proving its inhabitants are animal abusers who are never prosecuted. Ace deserves much better than to be someone’s punching bag. I hope he recovers and gets the safe loving home he obviously never had.

    Hope they find out who did this to Ace and do the same to him. Another animal from Texas. What type of country do we live in that allows this type of treatment to defenseless animals?Instead of politicians from both parties lining their pockets, they should be helping this country take care of those who can’t take care of themselves-both humans and animals. Where is our caring for others? Fortunately there are redeeming stories that we read that restores our faith in other people.

    Hoping for the best for Ace. I am so happy for myself that I got a reverse mortgage that I am able to donate soon for animals in need.

    I would also like to know why isnt the owner charged with animal cruelty abd neglect. If the person bringing the dog in isnt hus owner why isnt there any investigation to find the owner. The person bringing the dog in must know something. Question that person to find out the owner. I guess to the authorities it’s not worth it. I am so sick of people getting away with animal abuse. Nothing will change until abusers get prosecuted and get punished. So all of us on this site will keep venting our anger for years to come because more abuse cases will keep happening because nothing is being done. I am fairly new to this site but is there a way to contact the shelter to see if they followed up with charges and if not to keep putting pressure on authorities to do so. Remember the saying the squeaky wheel gets the oil. Please can someone help me with the right procedures on how to contact them. We all need to do something to change this
