Starving and full of ticks, two shepherds wandered the streets for weeks

Two starving dogs – one just an eight-month-old puppy, covered in ticks, roamed the streets in San Bernardino, California for weeks. The shepherds dodged getting hit by vehicles in traffic, scavenged for food and searched out human companionship whenever anyone would approach either one. Sadly, no one stopped, until finally an unnamed hero, who had seen the dogs wandering in the area, sent animal advocate, Andrea Neyses the photos of the two beautiful young German shepherds in dire need of rescue.

“Someone did stop,” Andrea wrote on her Facebook page. “a hero who had seen these shepherds wandering too long sent me these pics and called animal control who picked up last night and the animal control truck was VERY full. Not everyone has room to take strays home, but we can all do something.”

So what can we do if we are not able to bring a lost, abandoned or injured dog into our home?

“Stop and call for help,” Andrea added. “Share these dogs so they go to good homes, donate to your local rescues and shelters. Visit shelter dogs. I take pics and visit them – no greater feeling than when I see how happy the animals are to see me.”

Greek social media condemns cruelty of dyeing puppy red

When photos of a defenseless, friendly little puppy dyed bright red appeared on Facebook Thursday afternoon, Greek animal rights advocates condemned the action calling it animal cruelty.

According to the Facebook page of Μαρία Βαζούρα, the stray puppy was found wandering the streets of Halkida in Evia,  covered in what was originally thought to have been red spray paint. The three-month-old puppy was captured and rushed to an emergency veterinarian.

“SOS
Puppy has been examined!
Luckily she’s healthy!
The color off k probably is hair dye! We don’t know how long she’s been like this because she’s soaked his dermataki!
She’s a 3-Month-old girl, and she’s estimated to be a medium
He got into a clinic. I’ll be there! I can’t bore it in hospitality houses that will be last a few days! That’s enough from here.
Today won’t be in the sun, on the road!
I’m looking for her home!
Because with the little one I’m not going to be, I just want serious people, people who know what they want and how they see these creatures!
It’s been a long time,” as translated by Google appeared on the rescuer’s Facebook page.

Henrietta the 12-pound emaciated puppy left under pile of trash

And in the pile of debris, the landlord was sure the whimpering sounds were from an animal, and called for help from the Baltimore City Animal Control. The starving puppy was found hidden under mounds of trash. There Henrietta quietly waited to die – just a bowl of water barely keeping her alive.
Henrietta was rushed to BARCS, and even though she didn’t have the strength to get on her feet, she knew she had been rescued;  as weak as she was her tail wagged. In her short life, Henrietta has already endured a great amount of abuse and neglect. She has been transferred to a partner  Franky Fund clinic ER, where she is currently fighting for her life.

The Franky Fund supports the medical bills of animals critically injured or victims of extreme abuse and neglect. Funding is desperately needed in order to give Henrietta a fighting chance.

“There is simply no reason or explanation to justify what happened to her. If ever a pet owner cannot care for their animal, BARCS and agencies like Animal Control are here to help,” the organization posted on their Facebook page.
Anyone with information on this case, Baltimore City Animal Control is asking you to please call the Animal Abuse Unit at 443-681-0101. Help Henrietta find justice. The main focus is on her care, but should she be looking for a home in the future. You can fill out an adoption application that we will keep on file. You can find it on the website at www.barcs.org/adopt.

Update: Dog with broken jaw waited in Texas parking lot for help

In the middle of the night on Tuesday, a dog with a broken jaw hovered near a parked car in McAllen, Texas; his jaw stuck open and bleeding profusely. The pain was so excruciating, there seemed to have been no relief; that is until a kind couple spotted him and called out for help. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC immediately agreed, and the little dog whose life was saved outside of Little Caesars Pizza, was rushed to Pet Doctor 911 on Tuesday evening.

Caeser has since been transferred to the rescue organization’s San Antonio veterinarian at Callaghan Road AnimHospital.  Surgery is scheduled for Friday morning to repair his severely fractured mandible in three places. It is estimated the dog will need at least two surgeries to repair the damage.

“Caeser is lucky to be alive,” Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder Stacey Silverstein stated on the dog’s update. “Caeser cannot eat or use his mouth even to drink water and is being fed through a feeding tube at this time.

According to the veterinarian evaluation, Caeser is only four months of age. It has been stated the puppy has been a victim of blunt force trauma with experienced medical professionals saying there can be no other explanation consistent with the injuries the dog has suffered.

Pet carrier became Chihuahua puppy’s coffin after left in sweltering heat

On Tuesday morning, a pet carrier became a one-year-old Chihuahua’s coffin after she was found on the property of a Brockton animal shelter. The manager of Animal Protection Center, Joyce Caranci found the female puppy “unconscious and foaming at the mouth.” Temperatures outside had been in the 80s just after 8:00 a.m. when the dog was discovered.

According to CbsBoston, Caranci rushed the dog to the Lloyd Animal Medical Center in Stoughton using an ice pack to help cool her body, but the pup died on the way.

“When I found her, she was already unconscious and foaming at the mouth, but she was breathing faintly and I felt a heartbeat… When I put my hand in the crate, it was hot. Not warm, dog hot. But hot, I don’t want to touch it hot,” stated Caranci.

The dog’s temperature registered at 110 degrees – nine degrees higher than a normal dog’s temperature. She weighed ten pounds, was brown and white and had no identification of microchip. The MSPCA  described the puppy’s coffin as a tan and gray plastic pet carrier with no identification. On the organization’s Facebook page the cause of the pup’s death was noted below her heartbreaking photos:

Someone abandoned a one-year-old female Chihuahua in a carrier outside the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusettsyesterday morning, and the dog tragically died of heat stroke.”

It has been speculated the owner may have intended to surrender the dog to the shelter.  Why someone couldn’t wait to make sure the dog was safe remains a mystery.  The shelter does not have surveillance cameras.

A $1,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. Anyone with information can call 800-628-5808. Animal cruelty is a felony in Massachusetts and punishable by a maximum of seven years in prison and a fine up to $5,000.

Rest in peace little one.

The pain was so excruciating, there seemed to have been no relief; that is until a kind couple spotted him and called out for help. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC immediately agreed, and the little dog whose life was saved outside of Little Caesars Pizza, was rushed to Pet Doctor 911 on Tuesday evening.

“Caeser has a broken jaw; he needs expensive surgery,” wrote Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder, Stacey Silverstein. “It’s at least $1000 to walk into the emergency hospital.”

Video #1

And when Caeser arrived at the veterinary hospital and his condition could be fully evaluated, volunteers and advocates were heartbroken. He was covered in blood all over his chest and legs from his mouth. Even worse, veterinarians stated the dog’s bottom jaw had been severed and detached from his gums and mouth.

“Caeser is now on pain medication and resting comfortably. He cannot eat, he cannot move his mouth, he cannot open and close his mouth and he’s been in excruciating pain up until now,” Stacey continued on her latest update on the organization’s Facebook page.

Caeser will require multiple surgeries to repair his badly broken jaw. Updates to follow.

Owner shot dog in head with crossbow because he broke his chain

The man who shot his dog over the weekend in the head with an arrow from his crossbow in Jones County, Mississippi after the dog broke its chain and eluded capture, has been arrested and charged with aggravated animal cruelty. Shawn Nichols, 26, allegedly admitted to authorities he shot the dog intending to kill it.

According to the Facebook page of the Southern Cross Animal Rescue, photos of the dog, now named Monk, with the arrow through his head had been shared over social media. Rescue teams and the Jones County Sheriff’s Department were able to capture the dog and rushed him to emergency surgery. Fortunately the arrow had not penetrated the dog’s skull; instead it had become lodged in the muscle on top of the dog’s head.

Authorities found a bow target at Nichols’ home and confirmed he owned the crossbow. The press release from the Jones County Sheriff’s Department included the following information:

“The deputies were able to get a phone number off of the dog’s collar. They called and determined the dog owner was Shawn Nichols, 26 of Laurel. When they arrived at Nichols’ residence they noticed a bow target in the backyard and asked Nichols if he owned a crossbow, he said he did. Nichols also admitted to shooting the dog with the crossbow because he had broken his chain and would not allow Nichols to catch it. Nichols went on to say he thought the arrow would kill the dog and did not mean for it to suffer.

Nichols was taken into custody and charged with Aggravated Animal Cruelty – 1st offense, which is a misdemeanor. Nichols will appear at Jones County Justice Court on July 10, 2018 at 1pm for a plea hearing.”

 

Monk continues to recover and has been placed in a foster home.

“SCAR-Southern Cross Animal Rescue The vet guessed his age to be 3-4 years old (it’s hard to know for sure bc of so many of his teeth being worn completely down). He’s a very calm, stoic, and gentle dog. He has not yet been tested with other dogs. The jury seems to be out on whether he is a Catahoula Cur or a bluetick mix.”

UPDATE: Dog dragged behind bike and beaten unconscious on the mend

Justice, the dog dragged behind a bike and then subsequently beaten with the bike until he collapsed and became unconscious, is healing after undergoing surgery. According to the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue’s Facebook page updating Justice’s condition, he still may need additional surgeries to remove a bullet lodged in his side.

Late last month, the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue were called to help the shepherd mix after he was dragged until unconscious through a Detroit neighborhood behind a bicycle and then unmercifully beaten.

“We received a call about this poor dog that witnesses said had been being dragged behind a bike by a cord until he lost consciousness. After the dog lost consciousness the perpetrator then stopped the bike and began beating the dog with the bike. Thankfully some kind residents intervened and saved the dog from his abuser and then called us. This dog is now in critical condition and we are rushing him to a Veterinary hospital for emergency care.”

The eight-year-old dog had surgery to remove five tumors – all of which have been sent out for testing.

Check out his update on video:

Two suspects were arrested and an investigation continues.

“There were a number of bones found at the location where one of the men accused of dragging and beating Justice was staying. We had an opportunity to examine some of the bones yesterday that had been placed outside in large garbage cans and we contacted authorities about the bones. Sometime later officers went through the bones and it appears some were removed,” the rescue posted on their Facebook page as a followup to the police investigation.

“We have had many people contacting us about the case against Justice‘s accused abusers. Unfortunately the prosecutor’s office returned the warrant and both suspects are under investigation however not currently being charged. We are disappointed in this status but are hoping that upon further investigation the suspects are charged and headed to jail.”

Justice has had many offers for adoption, but as of this time, he is still recuperating stated founder and director of the rescue, Theresa Sumpter.

Get well soon Justice. You have quite the fan club cheering you on.

To donate towards Justice’s care please click on Detroitpitcrew.com or call Center Line Veterinary Hospital at 586-758-5620 to make a donation.

Get well soon Justice.
