Dog Covered With Horrifying Bumps,Then Medical Team Figures Out What’s Wrong

When you own a pet, you’re forgiven for lavishing him or her with attention. After all, they’re your baby! You’ll have no problem spending top dollar to buy them the most delicious (and nutritious) food and to make sure that they receive the best medical care possible.

Unfortunately, in many parts of the world, people lack either the resources or the knowledge to care for their pets as well as they possibly could. And, sadly, those animals suffer the consequences. This can mean anything from being malnourished to suffering from otherwise treatable illnesses and infestations.

That’s exactly what happened with a South African dog by the name of Belle. By the time animal welfare workers got a hold of her, they noticed that she was dealing with an otherwise simple—and treatable—problem that had spiraled out of control…

It’s safe to say that the staff at Community Led Animal Welfare (CLAW), a South African animal rescue organization, has seen just about everything. But when they found a poor dog named Belle who’d been completely neglected by her owner, they knew this was no ordinary case.

Dog Found On The Side Of The Road With Her Eyes And Mouth Glued!

One common and terrible thing we hear of, about glue, is when someone has an accident with glue, but for someone to purposely glue a dog’s eyes and moth well that is really just despicable…

She was abandoned with her eyes and mouth glued closed, she was really struggling when they found her, she was on the side of the road by the Oaklawn area, poor doggie! She has been named Glory and she is a terrier mix breed after she was rescued she had to spend many days with the emergency vet!

It is really going to take quite some time for her to fully recover from her ordeal though, no surprise!

It was literally her fight to survive that kept her going through it all and that’s exactly where her name came from ‘Glory’!

Man Arrested After Dog Found With Muzzle Taped Shut

Last week in a courtroom, victory came for a pit bull named Caitlyn who was found with her muzzle taped shut in 2015.

William Dodson was sentenced to five years for felony animal cruelty charges after, along with 15 years for unrelated drug and weapon charges.

“The maximum sentence handed down by the judge is a victory for us and for all animal cruelty victims around the world,” says Aldwin Roman, the director of anti-cruelty and outreach for Charleston Animal Society, the organization that helped Caitlyn. “But beyond the actual punishment this was about more than this case as the both the Solicitor and the Judge stated. Our communities will not tolerate these crimes and we must do more to change how our animal protection laws are structured and how these crimes are viewed by the justice system.”

Army Ranger Dog Dies Saving U.S. Soldiers During Intense Afghanistan Fight

Shelter offering $10,000 reward after abuse of ‘Justice’ the pit bull

A 2-year-old pit bull found severely burned more than a month ago is on the mend.

When an animal control officer responding to a report of an injured dog found “Justice” in Shelby County on Nov. 2, he had injuries to his head, ears, neck, eyes and other parts of its body, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police said in a news release Tuesday.

The injuries were consistent with being burned, police said. Chemicals used to burn the tan male dog had caused his skin to die and slough off, the Shelby County Animal Shelter said in a Facebook post.

Sad Dog Left At Kill-Shelter With His Bed And Toys

Wall-E, a Lab mix, was first adopted from Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) in 2015. The sweet pup thought he had found his forever family. Sadly, he was returned to the shelter three years later with two garbage bags.

The garbage bags contained his bed and all of his toys that the previous owner surrendered along with Wall-E. The shelter posted that the decision to surrender the dog was not taken lightly, as the family was in tears.”This guy deserves a forever family who won’t give up on him ❤️Please don’t bash his previous owners though. We don’t know the whole story. What we do know is the owner was heartbroken and crying. It was hard to finally help them leave. The staff was crying with the owners. We don’t believe this decision was taken lightly.”

However, Wall-E was confused and left wondering what he did wrong to end up back at the shelter.

Dog Was Strapped Down To A Wheeled Contraption Unable To move And Nobody Care

There is only one photograph of Cabezoncito, a Peruvian street dog, before he was rescued. In it, the dog is strapped to a wheeled contraption at a metro station in Lima, Peru. The straps are tight around the dog’s body, and it looks like he wouldn’t be able to move. So he just lies there with his head hanging down.

While little is known about how Cabezoncito ended up at this metro station, Sara Moran, founder of Milagros Perrunos, a small shelter that cares for disabled dogs in Peru, believes that his owner tied up him up and left him there after Cabezoncito injured his back legs.

Dog Left Behind With Owners’ Trash Huddles On Discarded Recliner For Warmth

t’s a heartbreaking story we’ve all heard far too many times. An innocent dog abandoned and forgotten on the cold city streets, waiting faithfully for owners who will never return.

The pup, named Ollie-Loo by his rescuers, was discovered sitting on the curb amid the boxes and discarded furniture his owners left behind. He was curled up tightly on their old recliner, trying to keep warm.

A neighbor reported that they returned once after initially abandoning the young Pit Bull mix in order to retrieve a smaller pup. They once again left poor Ollie behind.

Terri Looby, a volunteer with the Detroit Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) had gotten a tip about yet another dog in need and was spending her lunch break searching the neighborhood when she spotted Ollie.

Chained Dog Could Only Take Turns Keeping One Paw Off Of The Cold Ground

Animal Advocates found a neglected dog named Diesel in the Yukon where he was chained up year round for four years even when temperatures reached as low as -40 degrees. All he could do was take turns keeping one paw off of the frozen ground.

Being chained up also meant that he couldn’t fight off loose dogs who attacked him, and he had been kicked in the face by a horse which broke some teeth and split his tongue. His owner had grown tired of Diesel and was going to shoot him. But thankfully, Animal Advocates was asked to help.

Rescued Dog Barks Nonstop While Out on Walk; Ends up Saving Baby’s Life

 

Georgie the daschund had a rough start to life. He was rescued by 63-year-old Charmaine Keevy in South Africa, where he learned what love and friendship were. One of his favourite things to do was go on his daily walks with Charmaine. One day while out walking, Georgie became obsessed with the storm drain; barking and carrying on. Charmaine thought that she heard meowing and when she got down on her knees to inspect, she realized that it was not a kitten meowing… but a baby crying!

The drain was blocked by a concrete slab, so she flagged down the first car that drove by. Inside that car was a man who would turn out to be a hero; Cornie Viljoen. Together, the pair pried out the concrete slab. Despite there being a six-foot drop, Cornie jumped down into the hole without hesitation.

Once he got down the hole, he was immediately bitten by red ants, but that didn’t deter him. He quickly realized that this was a crime scene and snapped a photo for the police. He then reached down and felt around for the baby girl down the storm drain. She had obviously been there for a while, naked and cold, with her umbilical cord still attached.
