A starved dog is fighting for her life – the female mixed breed dog, dubbed Fawn, was taken in at the Herkimer County Humane Society in Mohawk, New York, on Friday. The non-profit animal welfare agency posted several photos of the skeletal dog for its Facebook followers, and wrote:
Today, this dog was brought to the HCHS. She is in need of a lot of love and extensive medical attention.
What happened to Fawn?
Was this dog abandoned and left to starve? Or was she kept in a cage or kennel and denied food? She is literally skin and bones – all fat and muscle has wasted away, leaving her frail and clinging to life.
The humane society has asked for donations to be made on behalf of the starved dog – writing:
Please open your hearts, and donate directly to Herkimer Veterinary Associates at 315-866-9999.
Someone knows something about this frail dog. The animal shelter staff is hopeful that information about her will be provided by a member of the public – the agency wrote:
If this dog looks familiar to you or know any information please private message us.
