Shelter dogs have a tough enough life just waiting everyday for someone to come and rescue them. However, shelter dogs in Arkansas are facing another danger that threatens their life.
The Humane Society Of The Delta in Arkansas had their shelter dogs targeted by a monster that is breaking in and using them for bait dogs. They believe someone intentionally opened many of the cages of the shelter dogs. They are unsure if they brought in their own fighting dog or just put multiple shelter dogs, especially pit bulls, in one kennel to fight for sport.
The staff came in to find multiple dogs with puncture wounds. “The scene was straight out of a horror film. It was a bloodbath. Kennels had been destroyed in the mayhem to give you an idea of the kind of fighting and violence that took place,” posted the shelter after the first attack.
Rubio, a 9 year old lab mix, had the most injuries and was fighting for his life. Thankfully, he was rushed to a vet where they are caring for him and he is slowly improving. The shelter put out a plea to have people donate to help cover the medical bills of the injured dogs and for a security system. They went on to ask for help installing it.
