Heartbreaking reality of 3 dogs with little hope at Texas kill shelter until…

Nearly every hour of every day, Texas kill shelters fill up with the innocent victims of abuse and neglect. The heartbreaking reality of dogs left to languish in the streets – just to be surrendered or captured by animal control and then locked  away into tiny shelter cages to await their deaths as they are walked down a lonely hallway, muzzled and injected with poison.

When Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s co-founder Stacey Silverstein spotted the photos  and watched the two puppies clinging to each other, she immediately reached out with an offer to help. Tragically these two puppies had been surrendered by their owner. How could anyone let mere puppies wind up like this?

“Where is the respect? Where is the humanity?,” Stacey asked on the group’s Facebook page as she posted the heartbreaking video of the puppies and an adult dog found in horrible condition. “They came into this kill shelter in this condition, thrown onto the hard concrete disease infected floor in obviously critical and weak condition.”

There is no blood relationship between the two puppies and the larger dog- that is except for their poor physical condition and the fate the three were about to face.

“We are so disgusted everyday to be confronted with this harsh reality,” Stacey continued. “Once again we will be their protectors and saviors and get them the help they so desperately need.”

As of Thursday afternoon, all three of the dogs have been moved and are safe and receiving medical help. The larger dog has been named Mulani. The puppies are now known as Po and Mishi. Their new lives begin today. It is hoped they survive.

Wanted: Dog owner videoed hitting and dragging terrified pup

On a street in  north Birmingham, England, the owner of a terrified pup was videoed hitting and dragging the little one down a residential street along the pavement. Footage of the disturbing situation was filmed by a concerned passer-by who contacted the RSPCA; an investigation to track down the owner of the dog has since been launched.

According to the Birmingham Live News, RSPCA Inspector Beth Boyd, the witness reported the incident on February 8 after she spotted the petrified dog barely able to move along Warren Farm Road. There she saw the man beating and then dragging the defenseless little guy.

“In the footage you can see the little golden- colored puppy being dragged along the pavement by the man walking him. He appears to be limping and holding up a rear leg. The man is dressed in blue jeans a black jacket with the hood up and trainers. The puppy is being walked on a red lead.”

The witness then described the man leaning over the cowering puppy and repeatedly hitting it. Inspector Boyd is appealing to the public asking anyone who recognizes the man or the dog to get in touch with the RSPCA by calling 0300 123 8018.

Adorable: Police officer adopts puppy left to die in freezing river

A Daytona Beach police officer adopted a puppy left to die in the freezing Halifax River nearly a month ago. On Thursday, the Daytona Beach Police Facebook posted photos of the most adorable puppy now named River and the police officer, Kera Cantrell,  who visited the puppy, as the pooch recovered at the Halifax Humane Society.

It was during the Florida cold snap when temperatures fell below freezing when the tiny pit bull was found under the Seabreeze Bridge in Daytona, Florida. Two Daytona Beach Animal Control officers, James Lee and John Pearson, were able to fish the shivering puppy out of the water, wrap her up in towels and help to raise her body temperature. The puppy was rushed to a nearby veterinarian where she was nursed back to health.

Check out the video as officers try to warm the puppy:

Officer Cantrell loved visiting River so much – who could NOT fall in love with this adorable puppy? The department added the following update to River’s progress:

“Officer Cantrell is now River’s new mom and these are two happy girls!”

Thank you to all our police heroes and thank you for your service. Many happy years together Kera and River. Why not stop by the Daytona Beach Police Department Facebook – tell them Pet Rescue Report sent you and thank them for helping those who cannot speak.

15-year-old boy posted video of himself slamming tiny dog to ground

A disturbing video showing a 15-year-old boy slamming a tiny dog to the ground has resulted in his arrest, according to a press release from the Hollister Police.

On January 30, the Sunnyvale Animal Control and the Hollister Police Animal Care and Services responded  to an animal cruelty  report involving the teen and an eight-month-old Maltese puppy named Bella. A Snapchat video submitted to authorities showed the teen holding the tiny black and white dog in his arms before tossing the dog to the ground. The video showed the five-pound puppy had been thrown and landed from seven to ten feet in front of the suspect.

Additional investigation from the police indicate previous incidents of alleged animal cruelty to the same dog with the same teen. One previous account shows the teen kicking the puppy and the pup landing several feet away.

Bella is currently in the custody of the Hollister Animal Shelter and has been examined by a veterinarian. The teen faces felony animal cruelty charges and on Saturday was booked into the San Benito County Juvenile Hall.

Anyone with information is asked to contact AC Supervisor Kara Ells at 831.636.4320.

Teenager filmed herself kicking defenseless cowering puppy

A teenager in Central Queensland filmed herself kicking a defenseless, cowering puppy several times. It wasn’t long before the disturbing video went viral and garnered more than 70,000 views in less than 24 hours. In the last snippet of the video posted on Facebook, the woman hurting the puppy turned the camera around to show her own face.

Footage of the graphic attack shows the teen kicking the puppy as the pooch runs and tries to hides against a wall after having been kicked nine times. The puppy’s abuser, however still didn’t stop and chased the dog continuing to kick him. The video was shared on Facebook by the puppy’s owner, Rylee Phillips, who was not involved in the abuse of the puppy. The puppy could be heard whimpering during the 20 second video.

The woman torturing the dog can be heard in the video yelling,

“… your dog’s dead Rylee…how do you like that Rylee?”

According to the Morning Bulletin, Queensland police have charged a 17-year-old female from Koongal  for  allegedly “filming herself assaulting a dog” in Gracemere.

“It will be alleged around 7 pm the 17-year-old woman made a video where she kicked the animal numerous times and made threats before sharing the video on a social media app,” Queensland Police stated.

On Rylee Phillips’ Facebook page, an update on the puppy’s condition and accompanying photo was posted early Sunday morning:

“My boy is safe and sound thank you all for your help an support i am truly thankful idk what else to say but thank you everyone I’m truly grateful.”
The teenager accused of the animal abuse is scheduled to appear in court on Monday morning. There has been no discussion as to the motive for the disturbing abuse. The RSPCA continues their investigation.

Eight puppies freeze to death in Knox County

In Knox County, Illinois, eight puppies died from the extreme cold temperatures. The tragedy occurred on the day after Christmas when the dog owner called the Knox County Humane Society and told them her black Labrador retriever had given birth to a litter of puppies outdoors in the snow.

According to the Knox County Humane Society Facebook page, the dog’s owner did not know her dog was pregnant.  WqadNews reports the dog was just fed daily, and there didn’t seem to be much interest in her.

“I think it was just one of those unfortunate things where the dog just lived there and was just fed daily, and that was about it,” said Curt Kramer, Knox County Humane Society.

By the time rescue workers arrived, eight of the tiny puppies had already died from the extreme cold. Only one survived, and he is with his mother at the shelter.  The mother dog was also on the brink of dying from exposure, and her body temperature scored very low when rescued indicating hypothermia. Both mother and puppy are doing fine. When the puppy is old enough, both will be available for adoption.

“Please remember to donate to your local shelter, as your donations will be helping us save even more pet lives! KCHS would like to thank each and every one of you! It means the world to us… it means even more to them! Remember to please bring your pets inside this winter. If it’s too cold outside for you, it’s too cold outside for them!
I have included a link to our paypal, just in case anyone would like to donate to help.”

Dighton resident left puppy in freezing car for nearly an hour

In Dartmouth, Massachusetts, a man from Dighton is accused of leaving his puppy in a freezing car for nearly an hour. When the Dartmouth Police officer arrived at the North Dartmouth Mall, he saw the puppy in the back seat of the vehicle curled up and shivering.

According to WhdhNews, the person who reported the puppy left in the unheated car, stated the animal had been there for at least 20 minutes. By the time officers were able to rescue the puppy, it had been nearly an hour. Temperatures have registered in the single digits and rise only to the teens during the day.

The puppy was taken to an area veterinarian for a medical examination and is being cared for at Dartmouth Animal Control. The puppy’s owner has not been named.

Pet owners are being warned not to leave animals outdoors in these subzero temperatures. Did the owner of this puppy think the car temperature wouldn’t plunge while sitting in a parking lot without the engine running to supply heat?

9-week-old puppy with ears and tail ‘scissored’ off abandoned on side of road

Even on Christmas Day animal cruelty continues. And here is a 9-week-old puppy, dubbed Baby Solomon, who is indeed very fortunate to have been rescued. Found on the side of a road in Houston, Texas, he had been abandoned – how long ago, no one knows, but what was done to him was indescribable and heartless.

On just another day when volunteers from Rescue Dogs Rock NYC are called upon to save a life, Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the organization, made emergency arrangements at their partner veterinarian hospital to help Baby Solomon.

 “Sadly abuse and neglect never stops even on Christmas,” Stacey posted on the group’s Facebook page. “This 9-week- old puppy was found abandoned on the side of the road in Houston, Texas with both his ears and tail cut off to a bloody stump. You can see that this abuse was performed with a scissor. How could someone do this? Evil scum whoever you are we hope you rot in hell!”

Baby Solomon is currently on pain medication, but even after the humans who promised to keep him safe abused and disfigured him, the innocent puppy continues to trust everyone. The puppy will need reconstructive surgery to repair the damage; more updates are expected soon.

Stray dog was being eaten alive by maggots before rescuers found her


Drowning puppy saved by unexpected hero

Shivering puppy left outside of school in cardboard box with note

It’s cold in Michigan, and for a 7-and-a-half week old puppy, it must have been a scary experience – especially for one so young. The Detroit Pit Crew, a nonprofit animal rescue organization had received a call from a teacher at Ronald Brown Academy located in Detroit’s east side. A child had abandoned a puppy on December 7; the note attached read:

“Sorry it didn’t have a home and it was cold so we’re going to give it to you. Please do let it go (sic) find it a nice home – thank you.”

With the puppy came her blanket, food and holes for breathing; she has been named Snowflake.

“Our sweet rescued girl has been named Snowflake by Detroit school teacher Jessica and her wonderful son Kassius who are our Heroes Of the Day!! We also want to thank the kind janitor of the school who found sweet Snowflake and made sure she could stay safe until help arrived. As everyone can see in the pictures Snowflake is now enjoying a new holiday friend and can look forward to having a happy life!!”

Fortunately the puppy is in good physical condition and according to the rescue, is very attached to his box. The founder of the rescue, Theresa Sumpter, states the pup is a “Heinz 57 Detroit Special.” And what does that mean? The adorable little ball of cuteness is thought to be part pittie, chow and terrier. Could her DNA have been anymore perfect?

For now, Snowflake is not available for adoption, but surely she will have a line at the door. In that case, the rescue has many more adorable candidates needing new homes for the holidays. Why not consider adopting your new best friend?  Contact the Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue to interest. Anyone living in the Detroit area, can also help by volunteering to be a foster .

Drowning puppy saved by unexpected hero

Two-month-old puppy crushed by iron fence receiving emergency care

A two-month-old puppy is currently fighting for his life at an emergency south Texas veterinary hospital after having been crushed under an iron fence. On Tuesday, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC intervened, after having been told the heartbreaking story of an innocent puppy who fell victim to the severe accident according to his owners, as told by a rescuer:

“A family of low income brought me this pitbull. They said an iron fence fell on top of him. He had two wounds. Last night I fed him. He does drink water. He can’t stand on paws he tries to stand with support. As of this morning he refuses to eat. I believe when pooped hurts him. He started coughing this morning. I cant afford to keep him since I already took in a stray pup with mange. This pup needs emergency help. I believe damage could be internal.” (edited for reading clarity)

Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization, has promised to help in any way possible to save the life of this nine to ten-week-old  puppy, now dubbed Bales. By Wednesday morning, x-rays showed no broken bones, yet Bales cannot move nor can he stand; earlier in the morning he urinated on himself. It is still not known if he suffered internal injuries. More tests are currently being performed although the positive signs include his body temperature remains normal.

The puppy is currently on intravenous hydration. and veterinarians are awaiting the results of the sonograms and a full blood panel.

 

“This innocent baby does not deserve this pain and agony. He certainly didn’t deserve to have been crushed by an iron fence,” Stacey added after posting the latest video of a puppy in need of a miracle and the help of kind and compassionate supporters. “We hope we can help him, and we will not stop at anything to try.”
