‘Keep up the fight Jake’ – Boston terrier rescued from high kill shelter

“Keep up the fight Jake,” rescuers repeat. Who can believe Jake is only two years old? Rescued on Thursday from a high kill shelter in Texas in horrific condition, how long has this Boston terrier been suffering? His eyes infected with severe corneal damage; his skin bleeding and infected with mange, emaciated, weak and a deep ulceration on his leg and left to lying on a filthy concrete floor, there was no hope of anyone wanting to adopt him.

“Jake looks like the walking dead; a dog that has clearly been suffering for a very long time,” wrote Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC on Facebook. “Jake is only 2 years old, but looks ancient from the continuous abuse that’s been inflicted upon him day after day, month after month. His best day came when he was dumped at the Texas kill shelter where he lay; half dead on the cold shelter floor.”


“Thankfully the shelter took notice of how critically injured he was and called us for help.” 

Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped in immediately and arranged transport for Jake to the organization’s San Antonio veterinary partner where he is finally receiving the care and help he deserves.

“We keep telling Jake to keep fighting because now he is in the best hands and on his way to the brightest future ever,” Stacey continued. “Soon he will have all of his numerous ailments treated, and he will be ready to start his new life.”

Jake will soon be searching for the perfect human companion to smother him with kisses and scratches. He is adorable, and can you imagine how cute he will be once his eyes and his skin are all healed? He is described as very sweet who gets along well with humans and dogs.

Humans failed this dog miserably: Rescue group hopes to restore his faith

On Thursday afternoon, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC responded to an urgent plea for help from a high kill animal shelter in Texas. Edwin’s humans failed him, and there he was – at the end of the road with no where to turn. Critically injured and left to lie on a dirty shelter concrete floor, who would even want to adopt him?

Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the rescue organization shared Edwin’s plight on Facebook after posting the following heartbreaking video:

“Scared, alone and not feeling well all because his humans failed him so miserably,” Stacey wrote. “We just cannot sit back, watch this video and not help poor Edwin. He’s got a lot of strikes against him.”

“If you looked at this video and it made you angry, the hate only belongs to his hideous owner who allowed this…”

And indeed Edwin does have a number of strikes against him. Arriving at the organization’s partner emergency veterinarian hospital, Edwin suffers from heart worms, anemia, eurlichia (transmitted by ticks) and is severely emaciated.

“This poor emaciated puppy is tonight’s 911. We have named him Hudson… The transporter says he is in very rough shape and extremely lethargic. He is vomiting water and that’s all we know.”

Hudson has arrived at the emergency veterinary hospital and is currently being treated. To help with this puppy’s medical expenses:

Someone left a 4-month-old puppy in this condition at a park

A 4-month-old puppy abandoned in a Dallas park and rescued on Monday morning by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC most likely has never experienced one day of kindness from her heartless owner.  Tragically,Penny has experienced the cruelty that too often accompanies being unwanted, starved and neglected. She had been taken to a nearby shelter where she curled up and prepared to die on a cold, filthy concrete floor.

“Just a puppy and this angel has already felt, experienced the hard core cruelty of this world and how we treat another living being – like garbage with no care of respect,” co-founder of the rescue organization, Stacey Silverstein posted on Facebook explaining how Penny was found.

The puppy is currently at a partner veterinarian hospital and is reported to be fighting for her life. Her skin is like that of a burn victim as it is red, infected and oozing pus. Penny is too weak to stand and just lies lifeless. At this point she is barely alive, and a staff of veterinarians are trying their best to help.

“She is barely alive; we hope we are not too late,” Stacey posted along with the heartbreaking photos of Penny.

Pleading for help with his eyes, Balto rescued from Texas border shelter

A dog’s eyes plead for help. By no fault of his own, Balto happened to wind up in one of the poorest animal shelters along the Texas and Mexico border. Tragically there is little money, few volunteers and nearly no opportunity for dogs to be adopted; most pets brought in or found are euthanized.

Balto, however is one of the lucky ones. As his photos tell the story of abuse, neglect, sickness, abandonment and homelessness, this young dog has been rescued by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC and has been transferred to the organization’s partner veterinarian for life-saving care.

“Same old story over and over again,” co-founder of the rescue Stacey Silverstein posted on the group’s Facebook. “We are here to pick up the pieces of these broken angels and try to give them back their lives.”

Balto is one of the thousands who have become the innocent casualties of the endless plight of homeless dogs across the country. Approximately 3.2 million shelter animals are adopted every year. (1.6 million dogs and 1.6 million cats) About 710,000 animals who enter shelters as strays are returned to their owners.

Sadly, each year, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats). The most common reasons pets end up in shelters are due to being surrendered by their owners or found on the streets as strays. Only 10% of the pets entering shelters have been spayed or neutered. Can you see part of the problem? Be a responsible pet owner – spay or neuter your pet.

Dog survives aggressive coyote attack

In a rural area of South Carolina, a nine-month-old puppy was attacked by a coyote on Saturday night. When an area resident was awakened at 3:00 a.m. by terrible screams, she raced outside and spotted a coyote on top of the poor puppy aggressively attacking. The submissive pup was so frightened, he didn’t even fight back.

Fortunately the coyote was chased off, and the shivering pup taken to Animal Control for medical treatment. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC volunteered to rescue the pooch, now named Ramsey from the shelter.

“We are glad someone heard Ramsey’s cries and that he will be okay,” wrote Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder, Jackie O’Sullivan. “Many other pets are not so lucky. Coyotes are out in record numbers in many parts of this country attacking and killing family pets. Please keep your pets safe.”

Unfortunately, as coyotes get more comfortable and lose their natural fear in urban areas, they are more apt to be seen prowling around in search of prey. There are still practical ways to dissuade the animals from coming into residential neighbors. Coyotes are important to our natural surroundings as they do keep rodents in control, however the animals can transmit infectious diseases including rabies, distemper and parasitic worms, fleas and ticks. Don’t ever try to be a hero – just learn the basics to protect yourself and your pets.

  • Do not keep food outside
  • Clean your grill after every use of store it in the garage
  • Don’t add meat to compost piles
  • Pick up fallen fruit if you have fruit trees in your yard
  • Keep cats indoors
  • Don’t leave dogs tied outdoors
  • Be careful with backyard chickens
  • Fences can be installed as well as fence-top rollers

If ever confronted by a coyote, never turn your back on the animal and do not run. Make sure your dog is leashed and do not turn your dog loose to go after the coyote either. Hold your hands over your head and wave at the animal to make yourself appear larger and frightening to the coyote. Run towards him and make loud noises to scare him away. Shake keys, flap your jacket and yell – “Get out of here!” If needed throw stones, sticks or rocks at them, but aim for their feet to scare them away.

Dumped cardboard box of doomed dead puppies, one little one survived

When a family living in a rural area towards the middle of Georgia went to dump their trash on Monday afternoon, they were shocked and sickened to find a cardboard box of what appeared to be a litter of dead puppies left in a cardboard box. Upon closer examination, they discovered one puppy had survived. The shelter immediately called Rescue Dogs Rock NYC and asked if they would help. Baby puppy Madison was then rushed to the closest emergency veterinarian for urgent lifesaving treatment.

One side of Madison’s face is fractured; hence the swelling. According to the veterinary team, her teeth on that side of her head are now facing backwards and going in the wrong direction. It is likely she had been hit with a hard object and somehow survived. Tragically, her litter mates were not as fortunate. They were intentionally dumped like garbage at a local dump and left to suffer and die alone.

“We are so sick and upset over this because there is just NO excuse for this depraved act,” Rescue Dogs Rock NYC co-founder Jackie O’Sullivan wrote on the organization’s Facebook page introducing the tiny six-week-old miracle puppy. “Obviously, these poor babies were unwanted, why not take to a shelter? Why in the world would anyone hit them, dump them and leave them with yesterday’s garbage to die?!

“What a sad world we live in. While we cannot say exactly what happened to Madison’s brothers and sisters, we can be sure they faced what she did or worse. She was just lucky enough to be found in time by these Good Samaritans with a conscience.”

Madison remains on strong pain medication and antibiotics. On Tuesday, she will undergo radiographs to determine the extent and severity of her injuries. The puppy’s head, face and mouth were so painful when she first arrived, her veterinarian just wanted her to rest for the evening.

Terribly neglected 14-year-old Shar-Pei still loves to cuddle and kiss

A terribly neglected 14-year-old Shar-Pei, seized by Humane Law Enforcement officers in Texas, is now on her way to New York City for specialized veterinarian care. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC was made aware of Rouge’s tragic plight and stepped forward to help. Rouge, known for the breed’s affectionate and devoted temperament, just wanted to be loved.

“Rouge breaks our hearts. This sweet 14 year old Shar-Pei was just seized by Humane Law Enforcement and is suffering from horrible neglect. Despite the neglect she has gone through she loves to cuddle with staff, seeks out attention and is very gentle and sweet,” wrote the organization’s co-founder, Jackie O’Sullivan, early Saturday morning.

Rouge is emaciated, has severe ear infections and has an obvious head tilt. In addition, she suffers from a myriad of physical health issues likely a result of severe neglect.

“She has severe skin infections which are especially bad in her legs with proliferative tissue which has led to hypertrophic tissue which could be caused by unknown reason. She is anemic, has arthritis, entropion and one bladder stone. We truly believe that Rouge has more love and life left to give and are desperately hoping she can find placement asap,” Jackie added after she confirmed that Rouge was heading to New York City.

Justice demanded: Owner watched dog suffer day after day

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.

Half-dozen puppies in Texas dried well discovered with no food or water

In a rural area of South Texas, the rescue of a litter of puppies discovered living in a dried well with no food or water is currently underway. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC were called early Thursday morning to help; it was an urgent life-saving plea; and to make the situation even more dire has been the absence of the mother dog.

“PUPPIES IN A WELL WITH NO FOOD OR WATER. WHERE IS MOM ?! We do not know,” co-founder of the rescue organization Stacey Silverstein posted on Facebook updating animal advocates and followers of the dangerous situation. “We cannot leave these innocent puppies to die a slow death as they fight to stay alive in the cold, dirt, inside a well in the middle of nowhere.”

The puppies are beginning to leave the well area and are wandering away. In a deserted area like this, there is the fear of the puppies being attacked and killed by coyotes.

At this time the medical condition of the puppies is unknown. There are at least six puppies. Volunteers are desperately trying to locate the mother. volunteers will stay until all are safely removed and transferred to the organization’s partner veterinarian hospital where they will be examined and treated.
