In Stockton, California, a property manager heard a dog whining and crying and was shocked when he found a small white dog tied to the bathroom sink a week after the tenants moved away.
According to Kate’s Rescue for Animals, the dog named Autumn had been tied to the sink by the owners.
“She was tied under a bathroom sink for the last week, alone, following an eviction. They left her with a bowl of Raisin Bran, tied up and cleared themselves from the apartment. Property managers were not allowed in for the week and had LEO escort them on to the property where they heard her crying. Soon everyone was crying because of the severe injury. The property manager called her sister who contacted a fellow rescuer and posted for help.”
Autumn was rushed to the Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital where her collar had caused a severe injury around her neck. She underwent emergency surgery and a drain was inserted into her neck to keep fluids from building up.
Check out Autumn’s video and see how quickly she has been improving:
Good morning from Autumn❤❤It's amazing how resilient these baby's are.

On Sunday, Autumn had to be rushed back to the vet after her temperature spiked. Her drain had been healing over and that was unclogged. She has been cooled down with fluids and ice packs and administered an injection of another antibiotic. Tonight she will stay at the veterinary hospital and hopefully will be able to leave in the morning. Follow Autumn’s plight on Facebook.
A police report was submitted by the property manager along with photographs of the dog tied up and the severe wound to her neck. Veterinarian reports followed and collaborated the injuries. Authorities, however have stated the injuries were due to neglect – not abuse.
