Every pet deserves a loving, caring home. Unfortunately, not all animals are provided with one. A sad reality is that many people take less care of their pets than they should.
Animal rescuers in Dallas, Texas were stunned when they discovered a freezing cold, abandoned dog lying in a crate on a desolate road. When they got closer to the animal, they noticed something close by. You have to see what they found.
Animals rescuers made a startling discovery when they found a shivering dog abandoned on the side of a road in Dallas, Texas.
Local woman Leslie Ysuhuaylas reported having seen the poor pup in an area where abandoned dogs are commonly found.
Leslie named the dog Benny, and wrote a Facebook post seeking a rescue group to come and help: “Benny is on an IV as he is completely dehydrated weak and starved. X-rays were taken of Benny’s leg and chest. His head is very swollen, and the medical staff is continuing to run tests to figure out why. As you can see, it cost the rescue close to $2,300 just for the night. Benny will get the very best care but we need your help.”
Rescue Rocks NYC, a rescue group in New York City, stepped up to lend a helping hand immediately and arranged for Benny to be sent to a local vet emergency, where he promptly began treatments to recover.
Perhaps most shocking of all was that Leslie discovered another abandoned pup within feet of Benny. “When we discovered Benny In The Box in critical condition there was another dog next to him who we suspect had been living in this area unprotected for weeks, freezing to death right beside Benny,” a spokesperson for Rescue Rocks NYC wrote on the group’s Facebook page.
“Thankfully, this dog appears healthy,” they said. “Betty spent the night last night, safe and warm, never to be on the streets again. She will be transported to our Texas vet partner for a full medical workup, to make sure she’s up to date on shots, altered and there are no underlying medical issues that need to be addressed.”
It’s so sad that people would just abandon these poor dogs on the side of the road. Let’s hope both Benny and Betty make full and speedy recoveries.
