A Wayne, New Jersey animal rescue were the only ones to reach out to a rural shelter where a six-month-old puppy had been the victim of a hit and run and left alone on the side of the road to die. Hounds in Pounds, Inc answered the call for help one week ago; a shelter volunteer had already pleaded with more than a dozen rescues to help Bubba.
“He is a victim of a hit and run. He was slammed by a car and then left to die, alone. Bubba is in utter despair, and his life is on the line. He doesn’t know that though, he’s pulling himself up and dragging himself along, doing his best to smile,” the rescue organization wrote hoping to raise the funds for his anticipated veterinary expenses.
Tragically, Bubba’s injuries were too severe and through the week his health declined. It was on Friday morning when the decision to end the puppy’s suffering was made.
“When we hung up this morning we had lumps in our throats,” the rescue organization posted on their Facebook page. “It was a very difficult call to make but we kept Bubba and his welfare at the forefront of our decision. Keeping him alive any longer would have been for purely selfish reasons and that isn’t fair. We will always do the right thing, even it it’s the hard thing. We said goodbye this afternoon, Melissa held and kissed him as he crossed over the bridge.”
We are all so sorry and sad over Bubba’s loss; his life had barely started. Rest in peace little guy.
