Bag of bones ‘Maverick’ saved from rural shelter by NYC rescue organization

On Tuesday afternoon, Second Chance Rescue NYC shared the shocking and heartbreaking photo of a dog who appeared to be no more than a bag of bones. He was named Maverick and had been taken by Animal Control to a rural shelter after having been found on the train tracks.

Maverick was brought back to the shelter; at first the shelter staff thought he was just a puppy since he only weighed 10 pounds, but after a physical examination, this poor pup has been so starved and undernourished, no one could have guessed he was three years old until his teeth were checked.

A plea went out to the non profit rescue organization, and volunteers immediately stepped up to the heartbreaking situation and have promised to do everything possible to save Maverick’s life.

Updates to follow.
