In Richmond, Indiana, a “skinny and dehydrated” 10-week-old puppy was abandoned in a pile of trash. Had it not been for trash collector Daren Wilson, who heard rustling noises and caught some movement out of the corner of his eye on Wednesday afternoon, little Kane’s life might have taken a disastrous and fatal turn.

According to the 2nd Chance Animal Rescue in Richmond,

“This baby was found by a Rumpke employee as he was picking up bags of trash. As he picked up a bag this poor baby was underneath it. He is very skinny and dehydrated but is doing much better now. He had no collar and no microchip.”

The black puppy was hard to notice amid the black garbage bags, but Wilson’s sharp vision saved the pup’s life. According to the PalItem, the pup was very timid, but in a few minutes Wilson was able to pick him up and called Kaysie Chase at 2nd Chance Animal Rescue for help.

Now named Kane who is believed to be about 10-weeks-old, is now getting the care and love he deserves. As soon as he gets a clean bill of health, this adorable little Labrador retriever mix will be available for adoption.

Many thanks to Daren Wilson for making a difference.

    Big THANK YOU to Daren Wilson for being observant – if he had not noticed Kane, that poor puppy would definitely have died – this little one did not deserve the cruelty that some hunk of human trash dealt to him. I am so sick and tired of people treating animals like disposable objects – If I had my way, this bastard would be hogtied and stuck into a trash compactor – no loss at all. I hope little Kane gets the safe loving home he obviously never had – THAT he does deserve.

    Absolutely heartbreaking and disgusting. WTF is wrong with “people”(using the term loosely)???

    Honestly, I am very concerned for our future…… (paraphrased): Ghandi states that a society is judged by how it treats powerless members……… we are in serious trouble……

    I know that whoever did this to a 10 week old baby is a POS who will burn in Hell forever for his cruelty…… let’s hope he gets there ASAP after dying alone, afraid, in horrible pain, and worst of all, unloved….. as he tried (& thankfully did not succeed) to do to this precious little treasure (who I hope is adopted into a loving furever home where he will be a beloved family member)…..
