Shorty suffered; this little dog became an innocent victim of domestic violence on Monday when he was rescued by the Marion-Grant Humane Society in Marion, Indiana.
In retaliation against his girlfriend, the abuser beat Shorty because he urinated in the house. And as the dog cried out in pain from the abuse, his torturer put rubber bands around the dog’s mouth and continued to beat him until the defenseless pooch fell unconscious. The cruelty still wasn’t over. The abuser then stuffed Shorty into a trash bag and dumped him in the yard of his girlfriend. He texted the woman and told her he left a present for her at the location where she had been living.
There remains a strong correlation between animal abuse and family violence. Animal cruelty is one of the earliest precursors of an individual trying to seek domination and power over others. Shorty is currently in the care of a veterinarian hospital. He has suffered severe injuries and will be undergoing further MRI diagnostic testing to determine the extent of his injuries and the specialized care he is expected to need.
The Marion-Grant Humane Society has set up an account to help Shorty. If you would like to help, you can donate to Marion Grant County Humane Society, 505 S. Miller Avenue, Marion, Indiana or Riverside Community Federal Credit Union, 101 N. Washington Street, Marion, IN 46952.
A criminal investigation is ongoing and charges against the animal abuser are pending. His name has not been released at this time.
