Valentine’s Day miracle: Vulnerable and helpless Buster heading to NYC

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.

    RDR does it again. Thank you for saving this sweet pup. The owner of this dog should be charged for animal cruelty and neglect. He didn’t get this way overnight.

      You are right. This took weeks, maybe months to get in this condition. How does someone go about their daily activities, including eating meals and see this dog daily? The person that did this should be left somewhere to starve to death.

    WHY WHY do shelters accept abused, neglected animals that are surrendered and the owners are allowed to walk away unpunished????? They should be arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty at the time they step into a shelter with an abused animal??? I don’t and never will understand this lack of shelter protocol to allow this to happen. And once again, if not for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC Baltimore would have just murdered Buster and never given it another thought – what is with these so called ‘shelters’ that are so quick to kill off an animal that needs help??? Thank God for RDR – Buster would be dead if not for them. I hope he full recovers and gets the safe loving home he obviously never had –

      Then you should have surrendered him before he got this bad. It must have taken awhile so you had plenty of time. Nice ending . Is that guilt talking.
