Viral video of badly injured dog howling in pain all night on home’s front lawn breaking our hearts

Spread the love

In Compton, California, a video of a dog, howling in obvious pain lying in front of a house, has sent shivers through the community. According to neighbors’ accounts, the young husky had been attacked by another dog who later fled the area and left this pup howling. Although the owners of the home called animal control, no one ever arrived to help.

You can see the 8-second video here: (WARNING: Graphic video which may not be suitable for all viewing audiences)


It was Suzette Hall, founder of  Logan’s Legacy 29, who answered the plea for help this afternoon; her heart breaking just looking at him. She immediately went into action.

My heart aches

Poor baby attacked by a dog

His cries 💔 his pain

Mary Nakiso and I picked him up and carried him to my van

I was covered in his blood

Suzette Hall

Suzette drove as fast as she could to her emergency veterinarian; during the entire drive, the dog cried out in fear and in pain.

When they arrived, he was quickly wheeled into the emergency section of the veterinarian hospital where Dr. K. examined the dog and saw that his neck had been torn apart. Everything is being done at this time to stabilize him.


His prognosis is not known at this time, but he now has a name. Meet Joel, and this dog desperately wants to feel better and live. Please help if you can.

Spread the love

At the Palm Valley Animal Society, in Edinburg, Texas, a two-year-old blind Boxer named Cookie Sauce needs help from the social media community – thousands and thousands of eyes and ears to help share this adorable little one’s story.

Recently returned into the shelter, Cookie Sauce suffers from Glaucoma and Progressive Retinal Atrophy, requiring more attention and care than the team can provide. She accidentally self-harms in the kennel, underscoring the urgent need for a home or foster placement where she can receive the dedicated care she deserves.

Despite her challenges, Cookie Sauce is a cute girl who loves people. She enjoys chasing squirrels, is potty trained, loves playing tug and wrestling, and knows certain commands like “come”. She’s a sweet girl who just needs help beyond what the shelter can provide.

Cookie Sauce needs immediate placement in foster or forever homes!

Please reach out to reputable 501c(3) rescues to consider tagging her. For adoption, fostering, or rescue information, please DM the shelter.

Zoo gorilla’s broken arm after scuffle on mend with 3D-printer

Spread the love

Animal lovers rejoice! Gladys, a beloved 11-year-old gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, is recovering well after sustaining a broken arm in a minor altercation with other females in her troop. In a press release on Thursday, the zoo announced Gladys has been separated from the other gorillas, but she can still see and hear them.

From Scuffle to Surgery

The incident occurred in April 2024. While squabbles among gorillas are not uncommon, Gladys suffered a complete fracture in her humerus (upper arm bone) after a fall. Recognizing the severity of the injury, the zoo’s veterinary team sprang into action.

Collaboration for a Custom Cast

Gladys’s case required a special touch. Due to her strength and active lifestyle, a traditional cast wouldn’t suffice. The zoo partnered with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and GE Additive to create a revolutionary solution: a custom-made, 3D-printed cast crafted from titanium.

This innovative cast offered several advantages:

  • Durability: Titanium is far stronger than traditional cast materials, minimizing the risk of re-injury during Gladys’s recovery.
  • Comfort: The 3D-printed design ensured a perfect fit, providing optimal comfort and support for Gladys’s arm.

Road to Recovery

Gladys underwent surgery on April 14, to repair the fracture and received the pioneering 3D-printed cast. The zoo’s dedicated care team is monitoring her closely, providing pain medication, nutritional support, and enrichment activities to keep her spirits high.

She has tolerated this cast much better than the temporary one that was placed on her arm during surgery to repair her broken bone. Despite it weighing about 8 pounds, she’s been able to get around better than we expected.

Zoo personnel spokesperson

Positive Prognosis

Early reports are encouraging. Gladys is tolerating the cast well and is expected to make a full recovery. Following cast removal, she will undergo physical therapy to regain full use of her arm.

Gladys’s story highlights the remarkable advancements in veterinary medicine. The collaborative effort between the zoo, hospital, and medical technology company showcases the power of innovation in animal care.

Stay tuned for further updates on Gladys’s progress! The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden will share news on their website and social media channels. Gladys arrived at the zoo in 2013 as an orphan and has continued to grow and thrive.

Best wishes for a complete recovery Gladys.

30 tiny puppies abandoned in cardboard box on side of Missouri road

Spread the love

Along a country road in rural Missouri, 30 tiny puppies had been abandoned in a cardboard box. All they had were each other, and the dozens of tiny legs worked hard to huddle against each other for warmth and security.

It had been a Good Samaritan on May 10, who accidentally found the cold and shivering little ones and called out to Wright-Way Rescue for help. Racing against the clock, trying to make sure the tiny puppies would survive, they were rushed to a veterinarian in the area where they received critical health checks and basic medical care.

We urgently need your help. Today, our hearts broke as we learned about 30 defenseless puppies found abandoned on the side of a rural Missouri road. Sadly, abandoned puppies are a frequent sight for us, but 30 at once is unimaginable. Who could leave these innocent creatures behind?


The tiny little fighters had to battle against tick infestation; a life threatening menace for such little victims.

Upon closer examination, veterinarians were able to distinguish three different aged litters; some of the puppies still required bottle feeding. Caring for all of the puppies have required specialized care.

These puppies will receive ongoing care at Wright-Way, including vaccinations, parasite treatment, high-quality food, and eventually, spay and neuter surgeries.

Looking Forward: Foster and Forever Homes

As they grow stronger and healthier, these adorable pups will be ready for the ultimate adventure – finding their forever homes! The rescue organization is actively seeking loving foster and adoptive families to provide them with a warm, nurturing environment where they can blossom.

If you’re considering welcoming one of these special pups into your life, please reach out to the rescue team at [email protected] to learn more about the fostering and adoption process.

Want to Help Even More?

While the immediate crisis is averted, the financial burden of caring for these 30 puppies is significant. If you’d like to contribute to their ongoing care, any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated. Please visit the donation page:https://give-usa.keela.co/WrightWayRescueDonate

Paper Towels To The Rescue!

As you can imagine, caring for 30 rambunctious puppies requires a lot of cleaning up! They go through countless paper towels each day. If you’d like to donate a pack or two of paper towels to help keep these furry friends and their environment clean and healthy, it would be greatly appreciated. You can drop them off at our shelter anytime (donation drop box is available after hours) or consider purchasing them through our Amazon Wishlist: https://www.amazon.com/…/wis…/R4JIZ7N9YWU/ref=cm_sw_su_w

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making a difference in these puppies’ lives. You’ve given them the chance for a happy and healthy future!

Dying man wants to find his beloved dog new home before he passes away

Spread the love

In Plainville, Massachusetts, a man is hoping to find a wonderful home for his beloved dog and best friend of ten years before he dies. David Fine, diagnosed with terminal cancer just months ago, wants to make sure his Sharpei/Boxer blend named Babs, has the best home.

According to Wabi5News, Fine adopted Babs as a puppy after she didn’t work out at two homes previous to him becoming the dog’s “dad.”

I had told myself i was never going to get another pet because it breaks my heart to lose them. Fortunately, she’s going to outlive me this time.

David Fine

David retired in 2020, and his dream was to travel across the country and visit the national parks. He adored his trips with Babs, and one of the highlights of his trip had been visiting Mount Rushmore. Unfortunately, as he left for Yellowstone National Park, he started to feel ill. It wasn’t long before he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

When Fine was younger, he had undergone treatment for leukemia and later was diagnosed with vascular disease. Last August, he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and given only six months to live. He decided against treatment and stated the chemotherapy would make him too sick, and the treatment would not extend his life significantly longer.

So instead, Fine has been making it his mission to find Babs a suitable home before he has to go into hospice care. His family can not care for her since Babs has to be the only pet, and Fine stated he has never been married or had any children.

So far, Fine has posted ads in local papers and now has been turning to social media for help. She will need a home where she is the only pet, and there are no small children. She is housetrained and very well mannered he says.

Babs is definitely the most important part of his life, and he wants the best for her.

…My fate is sealed, but hers is not. I have to make sure she gets as many good years out of the rest of her life as i can.

Then i can rest in peace when the time comes, but i’m not ready to go yet.

David Fine

If interested in meeting Babs, please email [email protected].

Heartless and cruel: Driver intentionally struck stray dog now in care of Texas rescue group

Spread the love

Just when you run out of words writing about animal cruelty, another heartbreaking story comes across your desk. On Tuesday, rescue organization ThisIsHouston alerted their volunteers and followers about another heartless act.

A young stray dog, living on the streets of Cleveland, Texas, not bothering anyone except looking to survive by scavenging for food, was on his way to the emergency veterinarian hospital. Meet Apollo – he had intentionally been struck by a car!

Tragically, there are many abandoned dogs in the Palm Grove area of Cleveland, and these dogs, by no fault of their own, are shot, poisoned and intentionally killed. Apollo became another one of those victims of heartbreaking animal cruelty.

The accident was captured on video. It was a head on accident; miraculously this pup survived. The driver did not slow down or try to avoid the dog who had been walking in the middle of a country road. Fortunately, a Good Samaritan spotted Apollo laying in the ditch on the side of the road and rushed out to help.

Apollo arrived at the emergency veterinarian, and radiographs show a severe L6 vertebral fracture with luxation. At this time he is not able to use his back legs and will need surgery to stabilize his spine. If he is able to undergo surgery, veterinarian surgeons say he has a chance to recover.

Spinal injuries are very tough and very costly, but it’s possible to recover. You guys know us — we’ll do what we can to give him the best chance at a full recovery.


You can watch the video here. Please know this video is very disturbing and graphic; not suitable for all viewers.


Please help us help Apollo.

Police arrest woman accused of abandoning and tying dog to tree with tree branch so he could not move

Spread the love

In South Windsor, Connecticut, a woman faces animal cruelty charges abandoning a dog after tying him to a tree and using a dog branch pushed into his collar so he could not move.

According to the Tyler Regional Animal Care Center, Janiya Bradford, 26, was arrested on Thursday. The charges stemmed from an incident on April 22 when it has been alleged she abandoned her dog off a walking path, securing his collar with a tree branch at the Niederwerfer Wildlife Sanctuary so he couldn’t move and walked away.

Officers responded to a report from a Good Samaritan who came upon the barking dog while she had been walking her own dog. Cameras in the park did not cover that area, and authorities asked for the public’s assistance.

Please look at the collar that was left on him with the name ‘Kobe.” Maybe your neighbor had a dog matchig this description that is no longer there, or you heard someone talking about leaving this sweet boy.


And it was on Friday morning that an arrest was made, and thanks to authorities and social media, Kobe may soon find some justice.

Kobe Update!

We promised you we would keep you updated every step of the way. We cannot thank each and every person enough for calling and emailing in tips and information. The power of social media is incredible! Thank you to CT Humane Society and BARC CT for all of your assistance, and especially Desmond’s Army Animal Law Advocates.


Check out the adorable photos of Kobe and how he is making progress and feeling much more comfortable and loved. He has been gaining weight, his eye infections have healed, and staff members are teaching him canine manners and personal space. He loves attention, and although he is still unsure of men, he’s slowly coming around.

He’s not available for adoption yet, but as soon as he is, we will let everyone know.

As for Bradford, she has been released on $5,000 non-surely bond and is scheduled to appear in court on June 5.
