When a photo is said to be worth a thousand words, can this dog’s suffering be anymore obvious? No words needed? Buster is a six-year-old dog, and oddly enough he was an owner surrender to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Center on Tuesday afternoon. Because of Buster’s horrific physical condition, the shelter had been considering humane euthanasia. That was before animal advocates contacted Rescue Dogs Rock NYC:
“The minute we saw him, we knew we had to help him,” wrote Jackie O’Sullivan, the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s co-founder on their Facebook page. “Buster cannot stand, he cannot walk, so he has no choice but to urinate where he lies. Can you imagine his suffering? How vulnerable and helpless must he feel? We cannot imagine.”
On Wednesday morning, six-year-old Buster left the shelter and is now being transported to New York City for specialized veterinarian treatment. And despite the neglect and ill treatment Buster surely has had to endure for a long time, volunteers accompanying him in transit, say he has been winning hearts and giving kisses all along the way.
“We love him already,” Jackie added as she continues to update advocates on Buster’s soon-to-be arrival in New York City. “Amazing how forgiving and resilient dogs are. There’s a lesson there for us all! We’ve got your back Buster – thousands of us.”
An animal cruelty investigation has been launched.
Happy Valentine’s Day Buster – your new life begins today.
