What could be more pathetic and heartbreaking than to find a three-month-old puppy abandoned with a broken leg on the side of the road? On Monday morning, a concerned citizen heard a puppy crying and found him immobile on the side of Thompson Street in the Village of Catskill, New York.
According to the Columbia-Green Humane Society/SPCA, the Good Samaritan contacted the Catskill Dog Control officers who brought the puppy to a veterinarian. There it was discovered the pup’s right front leg had been fractured. For now a splint has been applied, but he may require orthopedic surgery in the future.
The Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA is caring for the pup – now named Rudy.
“To abandon a cat or dog in a public place or street is a class A misdemeanor and is punishable by a year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. If anyone has information on who may have abandoned Rudy, please contact the Greene County Sheriff’s Office at (518) 943-3300.”
The Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA is seeking donations to help with Rudy’s rehabilitation and potential surgery. For more information, please call (518) 828-6044 or visit the shelter’s website at cghs.org. Donations can be mailed as well, addressed to:
