Abuse at its Worst

daneWe've had 2 abuse/neglect cases come in this week to rescue. One case involved 3 danes. The owners were allowed to take home one dane. The other 2 were released to our rescue. The black female dane was so skinny (literally skin and bones) that her organs were not working and she had to be euthanized. daneThe female merle(Ria) is also severely emaciated, pregnant, and now in labor struggling for her life and the lives of her pups. The second case involved 2 danes. The owners never did show up. These danes looked like a breeding pair. A different rescue took the male and we took the female (Cinderella). She is emaciated and has internal parasites and mastitis. Someone must have seen all these dogs suffering at some point in time. Please, if you witness any dog suffering this type of abuse, call your local animal control facility, humane society, or SPCA. Do not let these dogs get to the point where they cannot be saved. If you would like to contribute towards these dane's ongoing vet costs, please send a check to H.A.R.T., P.O. Box 40425, Fort Worth, TX 76140-0425 or use PAYPAL for credit card donations.
