In a section of Watts, California, monsters lurk. The unspeakable evil is clearly apparent in the faces of the innocent. An abused dog, dubbed Avery, was discovered on Monday with an extension cord tied around her neck and left to die.
“Cowards, demons, monsters,” wrote animal rescuer, Faith Easdale on her social media page after posting the shocking images of the young dog tortured. “The innocent little girl is at an ER right now… and she could really use our prayers. They said her windpipe was possibly crushed.”
Avery was beaten, nearly strangled and sprayed with paint. She had been left in an alley tied to a fence by an extension cord.
The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation have transferred her to an emergency veterinarian hospital. Her heartbreaking story begins here:
“She is in extremely poor condition. Cries when you press your hand to her face. We believe she may have been assaulted by a gang or used as initiation. Has open sores on her belly and leg, with a large welt on the side of her forehead,” the rescue organization posted on social media to update advocates on Avery’s condition.
Avery remains in critical condition and is being treated for her intense pain.
“Damaged and defeated. Wounded – but still amazingly compassionate.”
Updates to follow.
