UPDATE: Abandoned dog with severed genitals scheduled for surgery

In Wilson, North Carolina, an urgent plea went out on social media early Tuesday morning to help an emaciated, abandoned dog; someone had slashed the pup’s genitals and then dropped him off at the edge of the woods. A group effort, with a combined small but strong army of animal advocates, launched into action:

“Thank God for Talia Sutton who STOPPED and stayed with Zeus until AC arrived. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for saying YES! Most importantly thank you to the gang at Wilson County Humane Society who jumped in feet first and never looked back. BECAUSE of ALL of you folks Zeus gets his miracle. I know he has a long road ahead of him, but I am confident he will live up to his name, and “shine” through his journey. THANK YOU again to everyone who stepped up,” animal rescuer Kim Edmondson posted on her Facebook page.

Who could believe Zeus’ penis had been severed and left untreated became necrotic? Who could believe anyone could torture a dog like this and then leave him on the side of a road to die a slow and agonizing death? Still, with the help of prompt veterinary care, advocates, and Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, Zeus’ Wednesday afternoon’s update shows some optimism. Zeus continues to be on pain medication, intravenous fluids and antibiotics. Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue organization, added the following information:

“We have received a ton of messages about this poor dog, and we are every bit as upset about what happened to him as you are. We apologize for the last graphic photo, but think it’s important to understand the torture this poor dog endured and then to be just dumped to die after;-it’s unfathomable really. We must confront the truth to understand and fight the true evil of what happened here. Our most important job now is to care for Zeus and to give him the best life possible moving forward. That’s the least we can do for him. He was failed by humans and now we must try to earn his trust and make him whole again.”

Surgery is still planned for Thursday. To donate, Paypal; donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org or www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org/donate/ or

      O Pamela, I wholeheartedly agree – I would get great pleasure out of cutting off this bastard’s private parts and stuffing them right down their throat. THANK GOD for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC – they came through for Zeus.

        Is it vaguely possible this could have been the result of a freak accident as opposed to a freak person?

      • Pamela D'Angio says:

        Yes Nancy maybe this would stop animal abuse if it was done to them.I would get great pleasure to torture the scumbag.

      • Pamela D'Angio says:

        Nancy I agree. What an abuser has done to an animal should be done to them not a slap on the wrist, never to have animals again, and jail time. Why? when they get out the scumbags will still do it. Those low life scums need to suffer in pain so we can get enjoyment.

      • Kaitte says:

        And Mr Rev, PRAY tell how could he be injured on just that part of his body from a freak accident. I do believe the Vets have enough knowledge to know if it was a freak accident or not.

      • Rev. Dr. Yvonne Ray says:

        Kaitte – Now that they are also telling us that his tail was also injured, it probably was intentionally done. But vets have been wrong before. I have encountered wrong diagnoses myself a few times dealing with animal abuse as an advocate. And, I am a Ms. – not a Mr.

      • Colleen says:

        2 wrongs never make a right I’m shocked at the Reverend for speaking in such a way we need to pray that the vet’s can help Zues nothing else should take that away from him. My prayers are with you Zues as for what we can do call congress ask for tougher laws they are voiceless your not use your voice and speak on their behalf. My thoughts are I’m better for good thoughts and power than lower myself to their standard I believe in life and harmony.

      Where are all these monsters coming from, hell? How anyone could ever hurt an INNOCENT loving creature is beyond my comprehension. That dog will suffer for the rest of his life. These evil scumbags need to be punished and we are way too lenient on abusers and killers of precious snimals. Maybe karma will make his genitals rot OFF. We must look at it like this, MURDER IS MURDER WHETHER HUMAN OR ANIMAL. THE SETENCE SHOULD BE THE SAME.

    This is a real sick bastard and I want my hands around their throat. This sick scum doesn’t deserve to be on this earth to do this to this poor do nor any animal abuser. I would have a machete waiting for the Motherf&%ker.

    Betting you couldn’t print the language some are using. What is being done to catch this pervert? This pervert probably is a true mental case of the worst degree.. When he/she ends up in prison something not very nice will take place. Wish i could be there when this happens. Tears for ZEUS. Please let me know what vet to send a donation as many groups place donations in a scattered manner, not for the party you are donating to.

    Thank you to all involved in Zeus’s life-saving rescue and medical care. Your quick actions and compassion for this innocent and precious animal is inspirational. So pleased he’s being medicated and is hopefully free of pain. Please update.

    I wonder what can be done for him? If the authorities would bring back Old Testament type punishment and punish the evil perpetrator in the same fashion, it may deter some of these evil subhuman thugs.

      • Terry says:

        I agree with you both. The laws need to be more strict and there needs to be punishment in a more severe way for these perpetrators. The people who do these things know that they can get away with it

    • Pamela D'Angio says:

      Rev Ray what can be done for him? What I would do and what the law would do are two different things. I would cut his genitals, limbs and anything that would make him suffer in pain. As for thinking this is an accident I should highly doubt it. Do you believe there are rotten humans in this world that prey on animals since they are cowards and enjoy hurting them.? There are and I hate animal abusers and hope they get a deadly disease rot and die a slow death. That is putting it nicely in my opinion. I bet it was done on purpose.Face reality humans can suck except real animal lovers like the ones on this site.

        I was actually pondering what could be done for the poor dog. But vets can and do work miracles with the good Lord’s help. I know how wicked people can be because, as a Christian political activist and an animal rights advocate, I receive horrible and graphic photos and videos of abused, tortured and killed animals and people. Sometimes it simply overwhelms me. As for punishment for this evil subhuman creature, well, if some of you folks came across him/her/them I believe I would suddenly remember an appointment I had on the other side of town and if this person was severely abused while I was away, I don’t know a thing about it!

    I believe an eye for an eye for this evil person who did this to Zeus or any other animal. He/she will get his/her own backand then some and I believe he or she deserves it. Animals are always innocent. Even they are aggressive and attack other animals or people, it’s because of some evil cruel person who did it to these animals. People don’t need to like animals but do they have to be mean, cruel or evil towards them? Seriously. Only one place for these types people, HELL.

    I can do nothing but cry for this poor dog. Humans will be our downfall i swear. What have we become? Anyone that would do this is truly mentally ill. So many sick people out there in the world. I hope he can be healed physically AND mentally.

    Whoever wrote the post about God not existing , you will be in a bad place the day you face him in judgement. Because HE is very real.

    debor33 – A lot of people will find out that not only is God very real but so is hell when it’s too late to do anything about it. This absolutely breaks my heart.

    Where is Lorainna Bobit when you need her?? Cut his off with a dull plastic knife. Then send him to jail, the inmates will know what to do with him, until God ships him off to hell.
