Tragic outcome: Neighbor heard dog cry out in pain and called for help

In Wythe County, Virginia a neighbor called authorities after hearing a dog screaming in pain.

“…On the third night, she called animal control who followed the screaming which led them to a dog with her feet mangled and ripped off, intentionally locked in a shed,” S.N.A.R.R. Animal Rescue Northeast wrote on their Facebook page on Wednesday evening asking their followers for help.

The call to the shelter veterinarian confirmed S.N.A.R.R. Animal Rescue Northeast would be transferring the dog named Sassy to their own veterinarian, but something went terribly wrong.

“The county of Wythe, Virginia euthanized Sassy today without informing us… We called the vet to confirm our transport picking her up and were told the ACO chose to kill her.

The head ACO went into the vet and demanded she be killed. Why? because he didn’t feel Sassy had a good chance. He didn’t care that she had rescue. He didn’t care that we had already arranged all her medical care and transport to our specialists. He simply snuffed out her life because he felt like it,” the rescue posted on their Facebook page earlier Thursday evening.

Sadly there will not be any investigation. Sassy never had a chance to survive her injuries. The shelter manager made Sassy’s decision for her.

“Sassy wasn’t hopeless. She had fought like hell to survive and she deserved her chance.”

To help Sassy find some justice, please email:

animalcontrol@wytheco.org and copy the town administrator at info@wytheco.org.

Respectfully request county officials pursue animal cruelty charges against Sassy’s owners.

Any donations made to help Sassy will be used towards the rescue of another dog in dire medical need in Sassy’s honor.

    That is a terrible story, it is so sad and WRONG. SASSY had a rescue organization to take full responsibility for her care , and yet this MAN had her killed. He should be FIRED.
