It can seem like a day doesn’t pass without some story of animal abuse or neglect, and we are sorry to say, today is no different! Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is calling for our help again, this time to bring attention to Andy, a poor little boy from Alabama who was dumped in a shelter in this horrendous condition.
Looking at him here, it is really hard to tell Andy is even a dog!
Andy is emaciated, and it is awful to think how long this poor boy might have gone without food or water.
Half of his fur is missing, and what remains is severely matted. It is going to take a lot of patience and care to remove these clumps and make him look like a dog again!
We don’t mean to be cruel, Andy, but currently, you look a little bit more like a chicken than a dog!
Andy weighs a tiny eight pounds and has clearly been living in neglect and misery for quite some time. It is hard to imagine it, but someone has kept this dog, allowed him to deteriorate into this state, and then abandoned him to fend for himself.
Rescue Dogs Rock works tirelessly to raise awareness of the ever-growing plight of homeless animals in this country, both in shelters and those dumped on our streets. To help them in this crucial, vital work, and help dogs like Andy, please consider making a donation.
