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.
