A Texas rescue group was left speechless after seeing the dismal condition that a senior dog was in after his owner left him at an animal shelter. Dallas Dog RRR- Rescue.Rehab.Reform. wrote:
There is no comparison he was 14 years old owned and surrender to the ACO in the South Texas shelter. He did not even bother to give the officer his name.
Help offered, but it was too late
The rescue group immediately offered to help the senior dog – but it was too late. The dog had been so horribly neglected by his owner that he was at death’s door – too far gone to be saved. The rescue agency said:
The doctors said he was to FAR GONE to help him. He was being eaten from the inside
out, his body was shutting die and he was septic. I will say it again he was OWNED, the left him outside to dead. He was covered in MAGGOTS in every wound. They were in his urinary tract and anal cavity. I have so many choice words, CHARGES are being filed and the owners will be arrested.
A call for action
The rescue group is pleading for help:
Texas wake up this is not OK this is an ongoing issue and yet you continue to turn a blind eye. WAKE UP, MAKE LAWS that PROTECT and can be ENFORCED the dogs deserve more. The shelter named him “Hero” he had it just short time, he NEVER knew love and was treated like trash!!!!
This was NOT A DALLAS dog but the city needs to step it up and get an animal cruelty unit with the DALLAS POLICE DEPARTMENT please call your local representative and tell them you want a Animal Cruelty Unit NOW!
