Justice has to prevail in another heartbreaking case of animal cruelty in South Texas. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC helped to rescue Cami from her tormented life on Monday; her owners watched their nameless dog suffer day after day.
When her story of abject neglect began is unknown, but as her medical condition spiraled to near death, neighbors rallied animal advocates in the area begging for help.
“Skin and bones and never fed by her owners,” wrote co-founder of the rescue organization, Stacey Silverstein. “Her skin is like cement from pure and utter neglect for months, hairless! She has one of the worst cases of mange we have ever seen in our years in rescue.”
Neighbors had tried to feed Cami and watched with tears in their eyes as the loyal dog would take cover in a well just to escape the harsh weather outside where she lived. Often she would lie on the front mat of her home, and she thought her owners loved her. Never was she allowed in the house.
“What a pathetic and sad existence of this ‘no name dog’ ,” Stacey added on Facebook Tuesday morning. “Finally the neighbors couldn’t stand looking at her anymore and called a fellow rescuer for help, who in turn, asked us to help.”
And now Cami’s story is perhaps even more heartbreaking as her callous owners watched from their living room window as dog fought not to leave her horrible home; obviously thinking this was her family even though they treated her like trash.
Cami has been transferred to the organization’s veterinary partners and is now receiving life saving treatment. This dog’s nightmare is over. A complaint has been filed with the local sheriff’s office and all veterinarian records will be forwarded to prove the dog’s severe neglect.
