Hunter was dumped at a South Texas shelter this morning; his owner walked away and was not charged with animal cruelty. How will this egregious treatment of companion animals ever change if there are no consequences?
According to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, the organization that rescued Hunter this morning, the malnourished dog was surrendered in this condition.
“Here he is in the receiving cart at the shelter after being dumped by his owners,” Stacey Silverstein posted on the rescue group’s Facebook page. “He can hardly stand and he’s clearly suffering and in deep pain. He’s been suffering for a very long time and we hope we are not too late.”
Hunter suffers from a severe skin condition that has been so neglected, open sores ooze all over his body including his legs, ears and face. He is being transferred to the organization’s partner veterinarian hospital where he will be provided with life saving care and treatment. Updates to follow.
