Bae was another heartbreaking story of a once proud Labrador retriever as the sad reality of animal abuse and neglect reared its ugly head. Just days ago, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s co-founder Stacey Silverstein, was asked to help save two more lives at a rural Texas shelter.
“…She’s a broken down, homeless, neglected dog with a broken back and she is unable to use her back legs,” Stacey explained to the organization’s supporters and followers on Facebook. “Her hind legs are twisted and mangled. How long has she been like this? Dragging her back legs as they continually scrape on the hard concrete. Suffering and in pain? We were told by the shelter where she was dumped that if she couldn’t leave today she would be a mercy euthanasia due to her severe injuries.”
Bae’s transfer to a Texas emergency veterinarian, however was only part of the rescue story. A small black dog covered in mange moved behind Bae. In the organization’s frantic rush to help Bae, the tiny, scared puppy trying to push herself into the wall to become invisible could not be overlooked. She was named Fawn and also had been transferred to the veterinarian hospital.
On Friday, veterinarian examinations revealed Bae, who is only one-year-old, has a broken pelvis and leg; both injuries are “fresh.” She and Fawn are currently en route to New York City where Bae will check into the New York Specialty Hospital and undergo surgery on Monday or Tuesday. She will need two surgeries estimated to cost $5,000.
Fawn and Bae have bonded and afford comfort to each other. How comforting to know these two rejected pups will now have new lives – all of which they both deserve. To donate to their recovery:
