A horribly wounded dog, so badly injured that her very survival was in question, was discovered abandoning inside a metal cage which had been left alongside a road in Bibb County, Alabama. The pit bull mix, dubbed Hope, was burned on her back – most of her fur and skin gone from whatever scalded her.
A request for information
On Friday, the Bibb County Sheriff’s Department posted graphic images of Hope’s injuries, as well as a plea for information for the animal cruelty case:
On August 8, 2018, a call came in about a dog abandoned inside a metal cage on the side of the road. Bibb County Sheriff’s Department has conducted an investigation and is seeking any information about the case. We are continuing to follow up with Hope and her recovery process. The public is encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Dept with any information that will lead to a future arrest. Investigator Robinson and Deputy Lawley are working this case.
Helping the badly burned dog
After being rescued from the cage (trapped without food or water) Hope was taken to the Veterinary Hospital of Centreville. The maggot infested wounds were cleaned and she was provided with antibiotics – amazingly, despite the severity of her wounds, Hope is making a remarkable recovery.
Donations for Hope’s care:
Phone the vet hospital directly at (205) 926-4347 or email email@example.com
