On Thursday afternoon, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC responded to an urgent plea for help from a high kill animal shelter in Texas. Edwin’s humans failed him, and there he was – at the end of the road with no where to turn. Critically injured and left to lie on a dirty shelter concrete floor, who would even want to adopt him?
Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization shared Edwin’s plight on Facebook after posting the following heartbreaking video:
“Scared, alone and not feeling well all because his humans failed him so miserably,” Stacey wrote. “We just cannot sit back, watch this video and not help poor Edwin. He’s got a lot of strikes against him.”
“If you looked at this video and it made you angry, the hate only belongs to his hideous owner who allowed this…”
And indeed Edwin does have a number of strikes against him. Arriving at the organization’s partner emergency veterinarian hospital, Edwin suffers from heart worms, anemia, eurlichia (transmitted by ticks) and is severely emaciated.
