Puppy tossed out of car in front of Detroit Dog Rescue

Authorities and rescuers in Detroit, Michigan, are asking for the public’s help identifying the men seen on surveillance video pulling up in a SUV and within moments pushing a defenseless puppy out of their vehicle and leaving. The disturbing event occurred on Friday, outside of the Detroit Dog Rescue located on the corner of Harper and Somerset, on the city’s east side. Fortunately an employee of the rescue spotted the puppy before he could run out into traffic and get injured or killed.

“They didn’t even bother to knock on our door. Instead they simply pushed the dog out of the car and sped off leaving Mickey alone, confused and almost wandering into the busy traffic on Harper Avenue.”

According to the Detroit Dog Rescue’s Facebook page, the puppy has been dubbed Mickey; he is underweight and in generally poor health. Mickey’s ribs are protruding, and he has a bite and an abscess on one side described the rescue organization’s Kristina Rinaldi.

“When you have these animals that are roaming the neighborhood they are in danger and again it’s a public safety hazard,” Kristina told Fox News.

The rescue has offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to the identification and prosecution of the two men seen in the video responsible for abandoning Mickey. Let’s face it – there’s a right way and a wrong way to surrender a pet – and the wrong way is tossing them out into the street. Animal abandonment is a crime and punishable by a $1,000 fine and 93 days in jail. Anyone with information is asked to call 313-458-8014.

“We would like to thank Detroit Animal Care and Control for helping us with this case. The vehicle has been described as a burnt orange SUV. This is our 8th animal abandonment case today and DDR is caring for all the animals. We are asking for your assistance. If you can, please help by donating to DetroitDogRescue.com/donate.”

Dumped! All of these babies were dumped at animal control’s doorstep in the middle of the night.  (another litter dumped by an unknown irresponsible owner)They need help. At this time they are barely able to eat on their own and need help with vet care. Please help.

Toto: No days to lick at the wind nor a time to play

On July 25, Toto was brought to the New York City Animal Care Center in Brooklyn. The one-year-old black and brown Rottweiler mix had been struck by a car resulting in a severe pelvic fracture. Despite his pain, Toto allowed all handling. Toto had not been able to stand without assistance, and even though he seemed to have been well cared for, no one came to the shelter to claim him. With surgery,  the shelter has listed his prognosis as “fair,” however the shelter was unable to afford the expensive orthopedic surgery and follow-up rehabilitation for Toto. On Friday evening, Toto was therefore placed on the euthanasia list.

“TOTO – A1119689 – Brooklyn – Rescue Only
TO BE DESTROYED 07/29/17 **NEEDS A NEW HOPE RESCUE TO PULL”

When volunteers reached out to Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for one last hope in order to save the life of the sweet puppy, Stacey agreed. At 3:00 p.m. Toto was rescued and transported immediately to the organization’s partner specialty veterinarian. Just days later came the tragic news no one wanted to hear.

On Wednesday morning, the devastating results of Toto’s diagnosis was shared:

“After a battery of X-rays and diagnostic tests performed and a consult and exam by a renowned board certified orthopedist, it has been determined that Toto’s spine is severed; leaving him paralyzed and unable to urinate on his own . He also suffered 3 pelvic fractures, his hip is out of its socket and one of his legs is severely damaged. His anal gland nerves are completely non functioning and have no chance at rejuvenating, leaving Toto’s back end paralyzed and unable to go to the bathroom on his own,” Stacey wrote on the group’s Facebook page.

Sadly, Toto was not a candidate for “wheels” as he would have need a catheter in place to drain his urine for the rest of his life. It was then determined by the staff and Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, that Toto would have no quality of life and would continue to suffer in his debilitated state.

“The decision to put Toto to sleep was not an easy choice to make, and this young and beautiful dog deserved better. Toto was surrounded by caring people who held him tight before he passed over,” Stacey wrote. “Rest In peace Toto.  Your life mattered.”

Update on two-week old puppies screaming in pain ‘dumped’ at vet office

In a disturbing and heartbreaking report from Rescue Dogs Rock NYC earlier Tuesday afternoon, three puppies, estimated to be no more than two-weeks-old were literally “dumped” at the reception desk of one of the Georgia partner veterinarian offices. The defenseless little ones were described as screaming in pain. Besides having been much too young to be separated from their mother, the puppies were crawling with maggots and with deeply infected gashes over their tiny bodies. 

According to Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, one of the puppies died during the evening; the best that could be done was to try and save the other two.

Early Wednesday, the two remaining puppies, now dubbed Napoleon and Caesar, remain in critical condition although they are fighting to survive the abuse, most likely they have been suffering since the day they were born. The medical team has been able to cleanse their wounds, and able to destroy the maggot infestation ravaging their  bodies; the little guys are still listed as critical.

“The little ones are resting comfortably now,” posted Stacey on the organization’s Facebook page. “The deep infected gashes remain on their little bodies, and they are being treated with medication and laser treatments.”

The puppies have a long, uphill battle. Donations are needed to help with the costs.

2-week-old puppies screaming in pain ‘dumped’ at Georgia vet office

In a disturbing and heartbreaking report from Rescue Dogs Rock NYC earlier Tuesday afternoon, three puppies, estimated to be no more than two-weeks-old were literally “dumped” at the reception desk of one of the Georgia partner veterinarian offices. Besides having been much too young to be separated from their mother, the puppies were crawling with maggots, riddled with gashes and what they had to have endured in their short lives, is perhaps too frightening to even imagine.

According to Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, the hospital staff were in shock, as even the most stoic of doctors and technicians were drawn to tears. When one of the puppies died, they could only try to do their best to help the other tiny survivors.

“We are in shock and disbelief at how these two week old puppies could have endured such abuse to the point of near death,” Stacey posted on the organization’s Facebook page.  “There were 3 puppies and one has already died, so now there are 2 fighting for their lives at this very moment. They have deep gashes all over their bodies, emaciated, skin infected and completely dehydrated with pale gums .They will need around-the-clock care to even have a chance at survival.”

No information has been released as to where these puppies came from or where their mother might be. The rescue community is being asked to help with their medical expenses.

“We cannot do this without your help,” Stacey said. “We appreciate any and all help. How could we say no and not give these little ones a chance – no matter what?”

Toto Update: Puppy slated to die at NYC shelter after struck by car

On July 25, Toto was brought to the New York City Animal Care Center in Brooklyn. The one-year-old black and brown Rottweiler mix had been struck by a car resulting in a severe pelvic fracture. Despite his pain, Toto allowed all handling. Toto had not been able to stand without assistance and even though he seemed to have been well cared for, no one came to the shelter to claim him. With surgery, his prognosis had been listed as “fair,” however the shelter was unable to afford the expensive orthopedic surgery and follow-up rehabilitation for Toto. On Friday evening, Toto was therefore placed on the euthanasia list.

“TOTO – A1119689 – Brooklyn – Rescue Only
TO BE DESTROYED 07/29/17 **NEEDS A NEW HOPE RESCUE TO PULL”

When volunteers reached out to Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for one last hope in order to save the life of the sweet puppy, Stacey agreed. At 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, the news of Toto’s rescue was reported on the group’s Facebook.

“Toto was scheduled to die today at the NYC ACC because he was hit by a car, sustaining multiple fractures of his hip pelvis and leg, and he needs multiple expensive surgeries to survive and walk again. The shelter is unable to provide the care he needs so he was placed on the ‘Euthanasia List’ today. He could only be saved by a rescue partner due to the severity of his injuries. Sadly, due to the expensive surgery Toto needs to survive. NOT ONE rescue group stepped up for poor Toto. There we were at 3 pm today having to make another leap of faith to help Toto.”

Toto arrived at the organization’s partner specialty hospital on Saturday evening. Sadly the puppy is unable to walk and has no control over his bowels or bladder. A catheter has been placed in his bladder to prevent urine buildup, however the medical team is worried the puppy might have injury to his spince. At this time, the doctors are hoping his inability to hold his urine and bowels are due to trauma. He has been placed on steroids hoping the medication will reduce the swelling.

“We were worried when we pulled Toto to safety from the NYCACC about raising money for his surgery, and now we face an even greater obstacle, whereby Toto will need an MRI of his spine at the cost of $2500 before we can even contemplate surgery,” Stacey posted on Facebook concerning the puppy’s medical update. “It’s not Toto’s fault he was running loose on the NYC city streets and hit by a car. He was found by Animal Control and deemed a stray and brought to the city shelter to die.”

Stacey admits that Rescue Dogs Rock NYC had not been in the position to help Toto on Saturday after taking in so many critical cases within the last week, but they couldn’t just let the puppy die. A YouCaring link has been established to help raise the funds for Toto. Please help Toto and make it possible for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC to continue rescuing the most critical cases of abuse and neglect. If they don’t, who will?

It’s not TOTO’S fault he was running loose on the NYC city streets and was hit by a car !!!
He was found by animal control and deemed a stray and brought to the City shelter to die

Five puppies dumped roadside with mother dog’s legs bound with bungee cord

In a very disturbing discovery Saturday morning in south Texas, five puppies were  found abandoned in a basket on the side of the road. Next to the screaming puppies was their mother; she had been left in a plastic container with her feet bound with a bungee cord.  A black garbage bag had covered the mother dog’s  view of her puppies. All she could do was listen to their desperate cries.

It is not known how long the family had been left outdoors in the direct sun and 100 degree heat. No food or water was available; fortunately a Good Samaritan spotted the dogs on the side of the road and contacted a rescuer for help. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC has stepped forward and arranged for the dogs to be transported to an emergency veterinary hospital.

Since arriving at the emergency facility, the mother dog has been reported to be little more than a pile of bones and is unable to move. Two of the babies left in the basket have died. All of the dogs are covered in fleas, ticks and are critically dehydrated.

“How do we live in a world with such disregard for a living being?,” asked Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization as she posted the shocking photos of the intentional neglect and cruelty done to a litter of blameless puppies. “This innocent family deserves everything we can give them.”

Miami man accused of beating his puppy to death in broad daylight

A Miami Beach man was arrested on Thursday afternoon after neighbors claimed to have witnessed the man beating his puppy to death in broad daylight. And what was the puppy’s crime that he paid with his life? According to witnesses, the man said the puppy defecated in his apartment.

CBCMiami reports Woody Pierre, 20, tied his 25-pound black Labrador retriever puppy to a gate in front of the apartment complex located on Meridian Avenue;  then seen repeatedly beating the dog. Miami Beach police spokesman William Collado stated a neighbor heard a dog yelping and crying. When he went to see where the dog was, he saw Pierre hitting and kicking the puppy who had been tied to a fence. When the witness yelled and ran towards him, Pierre ran away.

“He was stomping away at a dog and actually filming what was going on,” Collado reported to the Florida Oracle.

Another witness said when the man started to hit and kick the dog, he called 911.

“I was holding something back from doing anything stupid and figured to get authorities involved because I’m not a cop. I let them handle it,” a witness stated.

When police and fire rescue arrived, they tried to save the dog and rendered first aid.  The witness had untied the severely wounded dog and carried it to the front courtyard. Unfortunately the dog died. Police were able to track down the owner of the puppy as Pierre and arrested him a short time later.

Pierre was transported to jail and faces animal cruelty charges. Police are trying to locate the video.

Rest in peace poor puppy.

Iowa man accused of snapping puppy’s neck after argument over Wi-Fi password

In Des Moines, Iowa, police are searching for a suspect involved in what one officer called the worst case of animal abuse he’s seen in years. According to Channel 14 News, a police report describes Christopher David Vogel, 25, arrived unannounced at his acquaintance Larry Gray’s apartment on July 6.

When the two men entered into a heated argument over a Wi-Fi password, Vogel threatened to snap the neck of a three-month-old Corgi that belonged to Gray’s girlfriend. Vogel then quickly grabbed the puppy and went into the hallway. Gray, because he is in a wheelchair, could not react fast enough and found the “puppy lying in the hallway, bleeding from the nose and whimpering,”according to the police report.

When authorities arrived, they rushed the puppy to a nearby animal rescue center, but she died on the way.

According to reports, the puppy died of major spinal trauma. Sgt. Ryan Doty of the Des Moines Police Department stated:

 “I learned a long time ago not to try and rationalize some people’s actions. This was completely senseless, completely senseless. This animal did absolutely nothing, it was not a threat. It was a small dog, he purely did it out of spite and evil intent.

We need the public’s help. If they see his picture and recognize him, have any ideas where he might be, or pass him at a store or a gas station, get a plate number, call it in, let us know. Our hope is that at some point he crosses paths with an officer maybe on a traffic violation and we’re able to snag him” said Doty.

Vogel currently has warrants out for his arrest for criminal mischief in the fourth degree, interference with official acts, and driving with a suspended license. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa at 515-223-1400.

Help find this man and get him off the streets.

Illinois teen alleged to have intentionally mutilated eight-week-old puppy

The Kewanee Police Department charged a 17-year-old teen alleged to have intentionally mutilated an eight-week-old puppy on Wednesday with aggravated animal cruelty. According to police, the youth admitted to injuring the dog. 

On Tuesday evening, the Henry County Humane Society reported the discovery of a two-month-old puppy at the Lakeland Terrace Housing Project. When found, the puppy was lying helplessly on the grass with four deep lacerations to his throat as well as a cut on his back. The pup was transported to Dr. Chris Ryan; the veterinarian caring for the puppy dubbed Thor, stated the wounds appeared to have been intentionally inflicted:

“We don’t typically see wounds like that from accidents, and it kind of looks like it’s on purpose, stated Dr. Ryan to NewsKwQC. “It seems like he’s doing just fine and I think he’ll make a full recovery, but it just could have been a lot worse.

Thor is thought to be a Labrador retriever and pit bull mix. When found, his wounds, believed to have been inflicted within the last 24 hours  were inundated with maggots and flies. Dr. Ryan was able to sedate the puppy and clean the area. He is expected to repair the wounds in the coming days.

At this time, the mother of Thor, nor the rest of the litter have been located, and rescuers fear for the dogs’ lives. Thor is not available for adoption at this time.

To those who would like to donate to Thor‘s care, checks can be sent to 206 Townsedge Road, OR PO box 695. Kewanee IL 61443. PayPal has been set up. Our email for donations is kewaneepets1@yahoo.com

Pea Ridge woman arrested for stomping 5-week-old puppy to death

A Pea Ridge, Arkansas woman was arrested on Tuesday after authorities allege she stomped a five-week-old puppy to death during a domestic argument with the owner of the dog. Tonia Ingle, 37, faces aggravated animal cruelty charges after a Washington County man told police she had killed his puppy on Monday.

According to ArkansasOnline, Ingle arrived at the man’s residence on Henson Farm Lane and appeared to be under the influence of “something” reported the pup’s owner. Shortly after she arrived, Ingle passed out for ten minutes, at which time the man called 911 for emergency help. When she awakened, the woman began to yell and kick things in the home and was told to leave, however she initially refused. As he pushed the woman closer to the door, she reportedly,

 “raised her foot higher than a normal step and then stomped on the puppy while looking down at it.”

The puppy gasped for air; a few moments later it died while the man held him in his arms. When police arrived, the owner was still holding the lifeless body of his dog.

On Tuesday, Ingle met with police where she initially denied hurting the dog, however after questioning, she admitted she may have accidentally hurt it. She remains at the Washington County Detention center in lieu of $3,500 bond. A court hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
