On Monday afternoon, Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs received a plea from a partner shelter in a rural Atlanta, Georgia area concerning a tiny abandoned dog stuffed in a pizza box and tossed away in a public garbage receptacle. The six-pound dog was rushed to the shelter where it was determined he was in critical condition and needed immediate rescue intervention to save his life.
Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs had the six-year-old dog, now dubber Thumper, rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital where he is being cared for but listed in critical condition. Thumper is not able to stand; doctors believe he suffered blunt force trauma to his head as he is showing signs of neurological abnormalities and bleeding.
Meet little Thumper:
We received a urgent plea from a partner shelter, about this tiny boy who was thrown away inside of a pizza box. This tiny 6 pound dog was found in a public garbage, in a empty pizza box, in terrible condition. He was rushed to the shelter, where they determined he was critical and needed immediate rescue to save his life. We had him rushed to a 24-hour emergency hospital for care. He is not able to stand, and the doctors believe he has blunt force trauma to his head, as he is showing some neurological signs, and has bloody discharge. We are heartbroken, that someone hurt him intentionally, he is so small and vulnerable. We have named him Thumper, and he is around 6 years old. Please consider helping us to be able to continue the medical treatment that Thumper needs. His medical care estimates are over $3,000, and we can not do it without your help.
