There was an urgent call for help on Sunday to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. At a Texas kill shelter, tiny Natasha had curled herself up into a ball in the far corner of the cold, dirty cement floor of her kennel cage. She was in severe pain and shock; someone had slashed her on her back.
“We were told that she would be euthanized if not out of the shelter immediately,” wrote Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, co-founder Stacey Silverstein. “We could not leave her there to die so we rescued her to safety. Natasha is now receiving life saving medical care at our vet partner in San Antonio.”
As most stories of stray dogs are often so vague, the sketchy information stated she had been intentionally slashed on her back causing a deep, ulcerated gash that had been infected thus bleeding and oozing. A police report reporting animal cruelty has been filed, but not enough animal abusers are ever identified, arrested or punished. And so the cruelty continues.
Natasha remains at the veterinary hospital; her wound is being treated with laser to fight back at the infection. At this point, surgery is not an option since she is pregnant. A sonogram confirms four developing puppies inside of her body.
“We are horrified that anyone would do this – hurt an innocent dog….”
