Owner would have dumped bonded seniors in shelter parking lot

A bonded pair of senior dogs would have been dumped in the shelter parking lot, had Riverside Animal Shelter not been able to take the dogs. According to a volunteer, the heartbreaking story for these two frightened dogs began on August 28.

“The bonded pair was surrendered yesterday while I was at the shelter. Staff let me know that the owner is moving out of state and had tried to rehome them for quite some time with no luck. If the shelter wouldn’t have taken them, the owner said he would have dumped them in the parking lot. Shelter staff told me they are extremely bonded. If you are wanting to rescue, they come as a pair.”

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.

Sebastian man left dog in hot car because it ‘was old and going to die anyway’

In Sebastian, Florida, a 64-year-old man was arrested on Thursday and charged with leaving his dog in a hot car for three hours as outside temperatures soared to 102 degrees.

According to the TCPalm, police found Harold Krages lying on the floor outside of the bar Earl’s Hideaway after he was kicked out when patrons learned he had left his dog in the car. As he was being escorted out of the bar, Krages asked about his dog. When patrons questioned him about the dog and where it was, Krages responded telling everyone, the dog was “old and going to die anyway.”

The dog was located and carried into the restroom where there was air conditioning. The dog died shortly after.

Animal Control determined the temperature inside of the vehicle was 93.2 degrees. Thursday marked the first day of summer.  Never leaving pets or children in hot cars.

Is this really a dog? Years of neglect and abuse and thrown into a shelter

Is this really a dog? Sadly, this is nine-year-old Dustin who survived a lifetime of neglect and abuse. And when his owner no longer wanted to be bothered just feeding his dog, Dustin was surrendered to a high kill shelter in rural Texas – left alone on a cold, dirty floor with no one to care and soon to die.

 

And here is Dustin’s video introduction. Just check out his condition; he is matted, his skin is infected and he is filthy. Tragically, the dog is blind now because no one bothered to treat his dry eyes with a simple, inexpensive prescription.

Before it was too late for this tiny senior, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC stepped forward to save him on Monday.

Video#1

Early Tuesday morning, Dustin arrived at the rescue’s partner veterinarian; his condition was even worse than expected.

“We are absolutely horrified at Dustin’s condition which is even worse than we thought,” Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, posted on Facebook to update followers and animal advocates.  “Dustin is covered in fleas and ticks, bites, mats; his eyes are closed shut and completely infected. He’s sadly blind now from neglect and failure to treat his dry eye.”

Just look at the poor pup’s back and tail. He is hairless and his skin is red and infected. No nine-year-old senior dog should ever have been so neglected.

Today Dustin begins a new chapter of his life – he will be bathed, shaved and examined. His medical needs are the first priority. Welcome to your new life Dustin.

Neglected 16-year-old Tigger left at shelter by his owner to be euthanized

A neglected 16-year-old poodle named Tigger was surrendered on Monday to Carson Animal Care. His family asked that their dog be euthanized because he was old. Of course, Tigger doesn’t understand. Once the only family he has ever known walked out of his life, and the frightened pup was placed in a shelter kennel, he huddled into the corner and shook.

Video#1:

A volunteer at the shelter has asked for Tigger to be moved to the medical ward where it is quieter and much more personal.

“We asked them to put a blanket but he won’t go inside…He needs help as soon as possible.”

INFORMATION ABOUT TIGGER:

“#A5180830 My name is TIGGER and I’m an approximately 16 year old male Poodle Toy. I am not yet neutered. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 5/21. I will be available on 5/21.

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.

Florida rescue dedicated to helping senior citizens keep their dogs

Often when visiting an animal shelter, we come across many dogs and cats who share the same sad story. They were once the beloved pet of  senior citizens, but for whatever the reasons were not able to keep them, and a family member was not available to help. It’s a tragedy for both the dog, who has known the same owner for possibly all its life and for the person, as the dog was possibly their closest companion.

That is one of the biggest fears for those of us who love our pets and regard them as family; what will happen when the day comes when we can no longer care for them?

Destiny for Dogs founded by JoAnn Goodrich in West Palm Beach, Florida is a 501 (c) 3 dedicated to helping senior citizens keep their pets in the home and if that is impossible, then re-homing them to responsible caregivers. Their mission statement reads “Destiny for Dogs is dedicated to assisting seniors in keeping their beloved dogs in their homes.”

This is achieved by assisting ‘qualified” seniors with dog food, monthly heartworm and flea prevention, and annual wellness visits to their own veterinarian.

Destiny for Dogs is non-breed specific and relies on fosters to care for the dogs in their rescue. They not only rescue dogs from owners or families who can no longer care for their deceased family member’s dog, but also from shelters. Their goal is to find loving forever homes for the dogs regardless of age, health, or behavioral issues.

All dogs taken in by the rescue are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped. All dogs also receive a wellness check before being placed in a foster home. Once the dogs are in their foster homes, they will be evaluated, loved and nurtured to prepare them for their new family and their second chance at a happily ever after life.

Currently, Destiny for Dogs is holding a fundraiser to collect much needed funds to continue their important work.

To donate to the fundraiser, visit the site https://www.greatgiveflorida.org/organizations/destiny-for-dogs.
