German shepherd puppy found in parking lot with severely injured back legs

Sammy is an adorable four-month-old German shepherd puppy with a serious problem. On Sunday, he was found in an Atlanta, Georgia grocery store parking lot barely able to move. Apparently Sammy had been hit by a car; one leg is literally crushed and the other is broken in multiple areas. 

The local shelter immediately reached out to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for help, and Sammy has since been rushed to a partner Georgia emergency veterinarian hospital where he has been administered intravenous fluids and pain medication.

“Sammy’s medical team is scrambling to stabilize him while our orthopedic surgeon hopes to save at least one of his back legs,” Jackie O’Sullivan, the rescue organization’s co-founder stated on the group’s Facebook page.

It is unknown if Sammy accidentally escaped from his family’s yard, however the puppy is both emaciated and dehydrated indicating he had been scrounging around trying desperately to survive. And what does a four-month-old puppy know about living on the streets? 

“We are heartbroken for Sammy, but as always, we will do our best for him,” added Jackie.

Sammy is heading via private transport on Monday to an orthopedic surgeon specializing in difficult cases. To help with Sammy’s medical expenses, donations can be made by clicking here or PayPal: Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org or mail: RDR NYC PO BOX 101 NY, NY 10028.

Dog’s face and the desperate look in his eyes plead for help

Chester is the tragic face of dog fighting. The desperate look in his eyes pleaded for help; surely the monsters who subjected this innocent victim to hell never cared. Surely the monsters who subjected this innocent victim to this hell never loved a dog. Odds are he was used as a bait dog.

And on Thursday afternoon, a rescue volunteer walked into a rural Texas shelter and knew Chester deserved more than an untimely death. From the moment the rescuer entered the dog’s kennel, he slowly approached her as he left a trail of blood behind him. For once in a long, long time, Chester felt a soft human touch, and then he slowly retreated back into the corner of his cage and began to lick and tend to his wounds. When contacted, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped up; co-founder Stacey Silverstein explained the situation on the organization’s Facebook page. She could not refuse to help:

  “He had lived through this before, injured with puncture wounds from dog fighting. Chester was covered in blood. He was covered in scars. His body told us his past and through his eyes showed us his pain.”

Chester has been rushed in for emergency medical treatment. Let’s hope this poor dog survives. To help with this latest case of extreme abuse and cruelty, donations for the dog’s care can be made by clicking here or PayPal at donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.

Queenie: ‘Look at me now I’m standing’ says dog thrown away as trash

Barely one week after Queenie was discovered curled up in a small shed in Houston, Texas and few thought she would ever survive the first few nights at an emergency veterinarian hospital, the emaciated dog thrown away as trash, has now been able to take her first steps. The dog had been another victim of heartless neglect and when her photo was posted onto social media, Queenie’s heartbreaking plight went viral as the phrase  “a picture is worth a thousand words” so aptly described her.

Queenie had been suffering in silence until a  group of animal advocates coordinated her rescue with Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. From there she underwent  hours of surgery to remove and debride the dead and infected skin over her body. Her infections ran so deep that surgeons could see the tendons on her legs. She was then bandaged to protect her raw skin and continues to have  her dressings changed daily.

When the medical staff reported Queenie had started to eat on her own, advocates were encouraged – “hoping Queenie would continue to fight the fight,” the rescue organization’s Facebook posted. And on Thursday morning, Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, labeled Queenie a “true warrior” and updated her condition:

 “Queenie continues her miraculous road to recovery. Here Queenie stands and eats; something she loves to do. Every day she gets a little stronger. We here at RDR NYC NEVER GIVE UP. And here is why … Queenie had the will to live and her medical team agreed. NEVER did we discuss putting Queenie to sleep, because if she had the slightest glimmer of hope, which she did, to pull through her horrific, abusive past, we were going to make sure she had every medical advantage to do so. And now look at Queenie! Her road to a full recovery will be long and hard but worth every second, every minute so that Queenie can go on to live a beautiful life.”

Update: Queenie, the dog thrown away like trash fighting a brave battle

Just one week ago, the photo of Queenie – another victim of heartless neglect found curled up behind a small shed in the Houston, Texas area went viral as the phrase  “a picture is worth a thousand words” so perfectly described the dog’s heartbreaking plight. She suffered in silence until a  group of animal advocates coordinated her rescue with Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.

On Friday, the young dog underwent four hours of surgery to remove and debride the dead and infected skin over her body. The infection ran so deep, the surgeon could see the tendons on her legs. She has been bandaged to protect her raw skin and will have her dressings changed daily. Blood levels are in the normal range, and Queenie remains comfortable being administered appropriate doses of pain medications. Further infections are her biggest obstacle at this time; she remains on antibiotics to stave off future infections.

And now on Sunday morning, Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, updated the dog’s condition on the organization’s Facebook page with some encouraging words:

“Queenie Eats
She loves to eat !
She is having a good morning and doing slightly better today
She still is very critical but her medical team is quite pleased with her progress
Slow and steady

Please continue to pray for Queenie , it’s helping!”

Three-month-old puppy with broken ribs found hiding under car

A defenseless three-month-old puppy was brought into the Animal Care Centers of New York City on Monday needing immediate urgent medical care. The young pup had been found hiding under a car and suffered broken ribs. Radiographs have determined his ribs had been fractured along one side of his body – the injuries were consistent with having been kicked.Infiniti 2

The shelter put out a plea for an approved rescue organization to help with the puppy’s serious plight and contacted Rescue Dogs Rock NYC late Tuesday afternoon. Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue organization, had him rushed to the New York City emergency veterinarian hospital to stabilize him and relieve his intense pain. The most concerning problem, however was the chance his broken ribs could perforate a lung or other vital organs. Dubbed Infiniti, the puppy spent his first night in an oxygen chamber as he was having trouble breathing. Placed on a fentanyl drip (stronger than morphine) to ease his pain, he remained under constant supervision and care.

“We are saddened that someone would hurt an innocent puppy, but we are happy he is safe and out of harm’s way today,” Jackie commented on the group’s Facebook page detailing the puppy’s emergency situation. “He also has cherry eye, but that is minor right now compared to everything else he is going through.”Infiniti 3

On Wednesday morning’s update, Jackie reports Infiniti has been removed from the oxygen chamber and if his condition continues to improve, he will be able to be transferred to the organization’s primary veterinarian where he will continue his recovery until he is strong enough to recover in a foster home.

Infiniti’s life saving care is costing thousands of dollars. To help donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org or www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org/donate/ or mail: RDR NYC PO BOX 101 NY, NY 10028.

Attacked puppy found lying in the grass bleeding from his head

A tiny puppy, barely able to figure out “what is what” in a lonely world was found lying in the grass bleeding from his head by a Good Samaritan late Saturday night. Searching for the owner or for rescue help, the kind man from Mission, Texas posted the puppy’s photos and a plea for help on his Facebook page:Marley RDR

“Anybody lost this puppy? I just found it outside in my yard. Puppy looks like it was beaten up. I can only take care of it until Monday. On Monday, if nobody claims it, animal control will be called. Unfortunately I can’t take care of it.”

When Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, was notified about the serious situation, who along with the help of area animal advocates, was able to arrange for the puppy to be transported to an emergency veterinarian clinic where he is currently fighting for his life. Dubbed Marley, the anemic, pint-sized fighter has undergone two blood transfusions. His condition continues to be marked as critical; on arrival the emaciated pup had been bleeding from his head and neck and covered in ticks and fleas. Marley 2 RDR

“Stepping into an emergency hospital is at a minimum $1000 just for supportive care,” Stacey explained to the rescue’s advocates on Facebook. “As can be seen by the video, Marley was attacked causing his injuries in addition to being covered in ticks and fleas and being dehydrated anemic and malnourished. What we would like to know is how did Marley end up like this? How can an innocent puppy just be running loose; most definitely for days if not a week or more? Right now Marley is in critical condition and has already received one blood transfusion at around 2 a.m. this morning. He is not eating yet and is very weak.”

Marley will remain at the emergency hospital indefinitely. To help with this puppy’s medical expenses, donations can be made by clicking here, or Paypal: donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.

When a picture speaks volumes: Dog shown thrown away like trash

Photos do speak volumes – “a picture is worth a thousand words.” On Saturday night, another innocent victim of heartless neglect was found curled up behind a small shed area near rural Houston, Texas. The dog suffered in silence, and whoever tossed him to the curb and threw him away as if he was a piece of garbage, will most likely never be found to be punished for such abject animal cruelty.

It was a group of animal advocates, organized by volunteer Leslie Ysuhuaylas, who found the suffering dog, and with many volunteers pulling together and coordinating her rescue with Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, that another innocent life has a new beginning.

“We have named this precious angel Queenie, because some day soon when she’s feeling much, much better, she will be treated like a Queen as a member of a loving family for the rest of her life,” co-founder Stacey Silverstein wrote on the organization’s Facebook page announcing the latest arrival to the shelter’s long list of survivors of neglect and cruelty.

Queenie is now resting comfortably at the organization’s partner veterinarian hospital where the emaciated dog has been diagnosed with a severe skin infection, double ear infections and anemia. To help with Queenie’s medical needs click here, Paypal -Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.

Worried Claremont resident finds emaciated puppy curled up in doorway of backyard shed

In the Claremont section of Baltimore, Maryland, a concerned homeowner notified authorities on Saturday morning, he found a frightened and emaciated puppy curled up in the doorway of the backyard shed behind his house. He explained the door had been broken, and the puppy must have entered during the cold night trying to keep warm. Especially troubling was the pup barely moved; she was weak, dehydrated, hungry and softly crying in pain. Somewhere a human failed her and nearly starved her to death.choban 2

When Rescue Dogs Rock NYC volunteered to help, they contacted their rescue partners at Baltimore City Animal Control who were able to get out to the  property and transport the puppy, dubbed Choban, to Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Center (BARCS). From there the dog’s critical condition hastened her transfer to an emergency veterinarian hospital where her body score was evaluated as barely a “1” on a “1 -9” scale. Choban was cold to the touch – a huge cut on her face extended from her eye to her nose, her forehead had abrasions, and the wound on her left leg continued to bleed.choban 3

“You can see every bone in her tiny body,” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC on the organization’s Facebook page as she described what happened to Choban. “Poor baby. What must she have been thinking each day when she woke up? Another day without food; another day of pain in her empty tummy. Our hearts were broken by her condition and seeing just how timid she was. We couldn’t get a good photo because—while very sweet—she wanted to curl up in the back of her transport crate.”

Choban is currently at the emergency veterinarian where her medical bill estimate for the first 48 hours will be $1,800. To help, please click here, Paypal at Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org or RDR NYC PO BOX 101 NY NY 10028.

Dog hit by car, denied vet care and left tethered outdoors by cord for months

Just ten minutes before a brindle coated bulldog was to be euthanized at a North Carolina shelter, Rescue Dogs Rock, NYC stepped forward to save the dog who had been hit by a car, denied medical care and left tethered outdoors in the backyard for months. On Tuesday, the extremely friendly dog named Lt Dan, by the veterinarian caring for him, arrived at the organization’s partner veterinarian clinic where the first order of business will be to address his two untreated, broken legs.Dan the dog

“This is one of the most heartbreaking stories so far this year, ” stated Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the rescue group who is known to come to the aid of dogs suffering the most severe cases of neglect and abuse. “Can you imagine his pain and suffering?”

Last Thursday, Wilson County Animal Enforcement responded to a report of an injured dog at a home located on Banks Lane. When authorities arrived, they found the bulldog tethered outdoors by a cable, dragging his back legs in the yard. According to the Wilson Times, the sheriff’s office chief of staff, Wanda Samuel, stated the owner of the dog, Yiovany Rodriguez Rosado, 19, told officers the dog had been hit by a car one to two weeks ago. It is suspected, however, that the dog may have been injured in September 2016. He also told the Wilson County Animal Enforcement that he didn’t have a car or money to help the dog, and didn’t know what to do. Rosado surrendered the dog to Animal Enforcement, who transferred the dog to a veterinarian where the pup was found to have two broken legs and other injuries. Sadly, Lt. Dan had been returned to the shelter where – because of his extensive injuries was doomed to die. Dan the dog 2

“It’s despicable cruelty and thank goodness the owner was arrested! Of course he’s out on bond,” Jackie sadly added, but her optimism quickly returned.  “Lt Dan had some angels looking out for him and they begged for help and for his precious life. They say he is amazing and deserves a chance! He can go to the bathroom by himself and feel pain and wag his tail, so despite all the time that has passed, there is hope! X-rays show disc compression,” and surgery is now a viable option,” Jackie explained on the group’s Facebook page.

Rosado has been charged with felony animal cruelty and for two counts of failure to vaccinate the dog and improper tethering. He was released on a $2,000 unsecured bond.

Senior Labrador with huge tumor found scrounging to survive on the streets

In rural Columbia, South Carolina, a senior Labrador retriever with a huge tumor on his shoulder was found roaming the streets by Animal Control scrounging everywhere for food. Thought to have been on his own for quite awhile and barely able to eat because of the neglected condition of his teeth, even more shocking was the massive growth. The  overall weight of the tumor affected his equilibrium – the kind and gentle dog, dubbed Davis, could barely walk and maintain his balance.Davis the dog

Rescue Dogs Rock NYC has stepped up to rescue Davis. On Saturday, Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the organization introduced the senior on their Facebook page:

“Davis got early release from the SC shelter and is now at our vet on IV with tests pending, on soft blankets probably feeling better than he has in a very long time! As you can probably guess, we need your help to help Davis! He’s going to need a big surgery.  Why, why, why would anyone let this happen to him?! Such senseless neglect.”Davis the dog 2

The ultimate goal for Davis is for the 60-pound dog to undergo successful surgery and then find a home where he can relax and be loved for the rest of his life. As with so many other dogs heartlessly abandoned by uncaring owners, it is not known where Davis came from, but we do know where he is now headed. To help with Davis’ surgery and all that is involved to help this dog have a quality future, donations to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC can be made by clicking here or through PayPal at Donate@rescuedogsrocknyc.org.
