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.

    RDR of NYC comes to the rescue yet again. This type of abuse, where the owner just walks away without any consequences must be brought to the attention of the politicians who can do something about this type of treatment of animals yet seem to refuse to deal with anything Americans want. There needs to be a public outcry and people need to call any and all politicians who can, if they want, do something about the abuse of animals.

    Some one brings in a dog that looks like this and they let them just walk away? What is the thinking in this, it’s better they turned the dog in than let it loose elsewhere? I don’t know what humanity is coming to but when you see this, then it can’t be anything good!
