In another egregious act of animal cruelty, a stray pup in South Texas, desperately trying to survive by scavenging for food, had been suffering after someone apparently hacked his tail off with a machete. After the dog was brutally tortured, he was left to die in an animal shelter. No one cared and no one was there to help him until Rescue Dogs Rock NYC came to his aid early Friday morning.
“Gino was left with no tail at all and suffering in pain with a deep and very serious infection causing him to now be fighting for his life, hoping he is not septic,” Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization posted on Facebook. “The hack job is not new and Gino has been like this suffering on the streets, homeless, in pain… “
The stunning looking black flat haired retriever has been described as having the sweetest disposition and in spite of having been tortured and abused, almost looks as if he continues to smile. He has been rushed to the organization’s veterinarian hospital to receive life saving medical care.
“Our society and our treatment of our companion animals is falling apart,” Stacey wrote. “The abuse and neglect we see everyday being inflicted on homeless dogs is beyond our comprehension.”
We can all make a difference. Report animal cruelty; don’t let someone get away with these horrendous deeds. Think about Gino, and although the photos are disturbing, this sweet and loving dog forgives humans. We don’t have to – we need to bring animal abusers to justice.
