Justice has to prevail in another heartbreaking case of animal cruelty in South Texas. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC helped to rescue Cami from her tormented life on Monday; her owners watched their nameless dog suffer day after day.

When her story of abject neglect began is unknown, but as her medical condition spiraled to near death, neighbors rallied animal advocates in the area begging for help.

“Skin and bones and never fed by her owners,” wrote co-founder of the rescue organization, Stacey Silverstein. “Her skin is like cement from pure and utter neglect for months, hairless! She has one of the worst cases of mange we have ever seen in our years in rescue.”

Neighbors had tried to feed Cami and watched with tears in their eyes as the loyal dog would take cover in a well just to escape the harsh weather outside where she lived. Often she would lie on the front mat of her home, and she thought her owners loved her. Never was she allowed in  the house.

“What a pathetic and sad existence of this ‘no name dog’ ,” Stacey added on Facebook Tuesday morning. “Finally the neighbors couldn’t stand looking at her anymore and called a fellow rescuer for help, who in turn, asked us to help.”

And now Cami’s story is perhaps even more heartbreaking as her callous owners watched from their living room window as dog fought not to leave her horrible home; obviously thinking this was her family even though they treated her like trash.

Cami has been transferred to the organization’s veterinary partners and is now receiving life saving treatment. This dog’s nightmare is over.  A complaint has been filed with the local sheriff’s office and all veterinarian records will be forwarded to prove the dog’s severe neglect.

    what is wrong with these pathetic people??? HEARTLESS MONSTERS!!!
    Their house looks nice and clean like they care more about their property than a living being.

    A complaint will be filed, but will anything ever be done to these people? Why someone has a dog just to treat the poor thing like this is anyone’s guess. I pray Cami gets better soon, she is at least in good hands now. I hope also that there is some sort of punishment levied on these POS owners!

    GD scumbags need to be put in jail and have the records ‘lost’ so they never get out! It would also be great if ‘people’ like that could be whisked away to a Third World prison where they could be forced to live in their own filth, eating nothing but substandard food and drinking filthy water with little to no health care.

    In other words, they should rot.

    These subhuman scum should be asked why they even had a dog to let it get to this condition. Poor dog only knew these cretins as his owner. How do you watch an animal get like this and not do anything? If they no longer wanted the dog take it to the shelter and say you found this dog. To live on the door mat is horrible. These owners should be jailed and the forced to live outside in all kinds of weather.

    These are not humans, they are lower than sewer sludge and should be treated like it. To allow any animal to get in this horrid condition and do nothing says a lot about them – ignorant, self centered, callous trash is exactly what they are – and I only wish I had the opportunity to tell them that to their vile faces. This poor dog knew no kindness, no care, no love – and they sat there and watched him suffer and ignored it. Thank God someone stepped up and got this dog the medical attention he desperately needed – NOW – arrest these human maggots and prosecute them with felony animal cruelty – they so well deserve it.

    Come down HARD on these barbarians! Make them hurt the way this dog has for years. Make them feel her pain for a long time. Staked our over an Fire Ant him would be a good start.

    I can not for the life of me understand why the hell someone would do this to a defenseless animal. This is incomprehensible, and unacceptable.

  8. Melissa Gurley says:

    Make them pay for all medical fees we have to start making examples out of these abusers the judge has to order it or nothing is going to change that poor dog

    Texas, huh? I can guess who the perps are. Ignorant primitives, who see animals as garbage. PLEASE make sure they spend some time behind bars. They probably don’t have 2 pesos to rub together, so a fine would be out of the question. But, they have to pay for the horrific way they treated poor sweet loyal Cami.

    How could the neighbors have waited so dang long? She couldn’t have looked better a few months earlier. She has suffered for a very long time! Way, way too long! Karma be swift to knock on the door of this precious soul’s owners. Swift and soon?

    Those vile humans better get at least 5 years in prison. There is no excuse for this!!! Imagine what that poor baby went through, the agony, the helpless feeling. How could they just watch her suffer like that? They are demons walking the face of this earth, direct family members of the devil. They MUST be sentenced to a harsh payback. They are not fit to be among the people of this world. Thank God she has been rescued and is receiving the care she needs and so deserves. Please keep us updated on her progress. Thank you and bless you all for reaching out to her…

    I would like to know why it took so long for neighbors to step in and call authorities. The dog doesn’t have to be on deaths doors before you can do something about it. The pos so called owners looked like they lived in a town house type area so there where lots of neighbors to see what was going on. If they knew the dog didnt have adaquate shelter why didnt they call authorities then instead of having to go into a drainage well for shelter. I say shame on the neighbors for not stepping up sooner

  13. Nancy Raymond says:

    These subhuman hunks of sewer slime should be and deserved to be treated as poorly as they treated this poor dog – this includes the crap neighbors who saw and did NOTHING – bunch of sewer rats must live in this town.
