Tragic update on ‘Tarana’: Dog who crawled onto doorstep to rest

In Charleston, South Carolina, a  very sick dog was brought to the Charleston Animal Society by the local animal control. A Good Samaritan found her near her doorstep on Johns Island; the woman called for help. Perhaps the injured dog had been dropped off by some heartless owner or had she crawled up to the doorstep hoping someone would help her? When discovered, the dog was too weak to stand and could even lift her head.

Named Tarana, the dog had sores on her stomach and legs including some previous sutures possibly from having been spayed or a C-section performed to remove puppies. Her back leg injuries were so deep, the tendons in her legs were exposed. And as much as veterinarians had hoped she would pull through, by Friday her prognosis worsened.

On the Charleston Animal Society Facebook, the heartbreaking news was posted:

“It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that Tarana, the dog who was brought to us emaciated and unable to stand with grave wounds on her legs and abdomen was peacefully put to sleep. Her prognosis was looking worse and it was decided by her veterinary team to end her suffering. Based on our observations, we suspect she suffered from cruelty and are continuing our efforts to seek justice for her. RIP Tarana #justiceforTarana#adoptatcas”

A criminal investigation has been launched. Rest in peace sweet dog.

    People ask me if I could actually shoot someone. My answer is yes I could and would not feel remorse. Maggots who wantonly and with malice aforethought torture and or otherwise abuse animals don’t qualify as human beings because they know nothing about being human. Therefore, they are worthless organisms who will graduate to continuous torture on animals and people. They are best eliminated. Would I kill them myself? If my life or that of my loved ones are threatened, absolutely. I don’t aim to lame either; center mass or between the eyes. Our justice system is so fucked up, we will continue to see cruelty. Criminals give up their rights when they commit crimes. For the most part, they aren’t able to be rehabilitated because they lack human quality and are morally, spiritually and emotionally bankrupt. You cannot instill goodness and kindness in an infertile mind or soul. It’s a waste of time. But crime is big business for shallow lawyers who bend over backwards to free their clients. They’re no better than the criminals. Where are these save POS lawyers fighting for victims and advocating against cruelty and lax laws? Well duh – there’s no money in that. I was, am and will always be a defense attorneys worst nightmare.

      Amen! you have said it all Gizmos Mommy and are 100 % right. That is the only answer to correct this horrible evil world that continues to abuse innocent animals. They have to feel the same pain as their victims. I applaud you.

        My dad’s b’day would have been today were he still alive. He loved dogs more than life. He lay dying and still tried to reach out to his beloved Jake. It broke his heart when he heard about dogs being abused. I’d gladly accept help eliminating scumbags like those who hurt this innocent pup.

      I agree with you 100% – I would have no problem eliminating an animal abuser – none whatsoever. In fact, it would be doing the world a great favor. Have absolutely no guilt or remorse in doing so.

    ALL I CAN SAY I WISH THESE USELESS SCUMBAG BASTARDS WERE TREATED LIKE THIS WHEN THEY WERE AN INFANT. ALL I CAN HOPE IS THEY HAVE A MISERABLE, PAINFUL AND ROTTEN SHORT LIFE AND SOMEBODY TORTURE THE LIVING HELL OUT OF THEM. SICK POS IN THIS WORLD NEED TO GO AND I WOULDN’T MIND DOING JAIL TIME TO TAKE THE MOTHERFU&^KERS OFF THIS FUCKED UP EARTH.

    I hope there is someway, somehow, the abuser of this beautiful animal is found and thrown behind bars forever…preferably with an animal lover who has nothing to lose.
