In Paris, Texas, the skeletal dog, named Sunshine, discovered tied to a tree by a Good Samaritan and rescued by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC did not have a good night; everyone is worried she has taken a turn for the worse.
Sadly, Sunshine has not been eating and remains very weak. Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC updated animal advocates on Wednesday morning.
“She’s very weak, depressed and not interested in eating; her vitals signs were very low at one point last night, but our medical team was able to stabilize her.
Our medical team is going to try an albumin transfusion now to see if this can help. She’s fighting but the damage is so severe. She needs all of your prayers and support at this time.
We wish we had better news to share.”
When found by a Good Samaritan on Monday, the dog had been left tied to a tree. No food or water was present; it is not known how long the dog had been left to suffer. Sunshine was not able to walk or even lift her head. An investigation into animal cruelty is currently underway as the rescue and hospital veterinarians work closely with authorities.
“To Sunshine’s owner who watched her from her window every day for months, tied out in the backyard to a tree, failing to provide her with food, water and shelter, watching her disintegrate into skin and bones … You are a monster!,” wrote Stacey. “How do you live with yourself…?”
Wishing you the best Sunshine.
