Holden, a dog recently rescued by Trio Animal Foundation, fell victim to the most mindless kind of human cruelty – but now it is certain that nothing terrible will ever be allowed to happen to him again.
At the beginning of September 2017, Trio Animal Foundation was contacted about a dog that needed urgent medical care. The beautiful Holden was beaten with a baseball bat by three teenage boys on the South Side of Chicago. Fortunately, a mailman who happened to witness the abhorrent sight intervened and contacted the rescue group.
Holden was picked up immediately and rushed to the clinic where he was then hospitalized for days.
“The worst day of Holden’s life might just have turned out to be the beginning of his happily ever after,” the rescue group wrote.
Despite what he had been through, he was eager to give love.
Holden soon found a loving forever home with one of the vets who helped save his life!
Holden is now beginning his new life in a forever home, with the best care he could get. A police report has been filed in his case, but, to date, no one has come forward with the names of the teenagers who had abused him.
Remember, if you suspect an animal is being abused, it’s up to you to speak up! Here are some tips on what to do and how to protect yourself and the animal in need.
