Dennis, a gentle Pit Bull, was abandoned on a bridge and was left to die. However, when Gabriel Sepulveda passed by on his skateboard, Dennis was finally shown the kindness he needed. Sepulveda called on Hope For Paws to help the poor dog, who was so emaciated and covered in painful blisters he couldn’t even move.

The Hope For Paws rescue team rushed Dennis to the hospital and immediately started emergency care. They cleaned him, removed the thousands of ticks from his body, and gave him a blood transfusion in an attempt to save his life. For the next five days Dennis was seen by neurologists, cardiologists, and internal medicine specialists, but sadly, their efforts were not enough to save the suffering dog.

All of the cruelty he had faced at the hands of neglectful humans left his body too weak to recover and sadly, not all rescues end with happy endings. This is a tragic fact that is important to understand because for every happy story, there are unfortunately countless others featuring dogs who were left to die and never shown any sort of care. You see, Dennis was neglected a long time ago, and no one was there to speak for him. He was only shown the true love he deserved when it was already too late.

Remember, if you see an animal in need, always call for help. It can mean the difference between life and death.

Rarther than fines and cushy jail time for animal neglect and cruelty I think that the same punishment or conditions they applied to the animal they tortured or abandoned should apply to them! This will stop the problem! Trust me or GREATELY reduce it. So it may be being chained up in a small yard with insufficient water/ food beaten the chain choking their free movement, sleeping in their own waste naked and cold! Being shouted at! Or being held hostage pregnant frequently only to have their off Spring removed very young never to be seen again ect! Or thrown off a bridge to drown in muddy waters or being buried alive or captured for the dog meat Asian trade surrounded cramped in cages with dogs dying on top of you then skinned alive if you survive to contribute your body to the dog meat trade. Or left to wander the streets living with uncomfortable diseases such as Mange and eating garbage and begging!!!! Yes any of these punishments should finally make cruel sick humans accountable and deter those tempted to practice this all too common cruelty towards dogs and animals. Look psychological thorough studies have proven that the perpetrators of Animal Cruelty are a menace also in society to humans with very little or zilch respect for their fellow man! Yes psychopaths and serial killers ect all very often have a solid history of cruelty to innocent vulnerable animals so I would have no qualms about the above punishments being administered for perpetrators! Soulless scum that are better not left to mingle in the community!!!
