Some people should never have pets.
It was the start of a busy day ahead for the staff of Unleashed Pet Rescue and Adoption, an association located in Kansas, on this day in 2018. And for good reason since outside the refuge is found a Boxer dog , left for dead in a garbage bag.
“Tears started to rise from the first second because we weren’t sure she was still alive,” said Rebecca Taylor, public relations manager for the association.
But the horror was not over. A few meters further on, the volunteers found another Boxer tied to a pole, also very weak. He could barely move his hind legs.
A narrow rescue
Immediately, staff rushed to the vet with the two doggies. They named the female Hope and the male Triumph.
“We had to act fairly quickly, given the condition of the two animals. It was heartbreaking. “
In addition to being very emaciated, Hope had an infection in her joints and lumps were found on her brain and adrenal glands. Triumph was diagnosed with muscle atrophy in his hind legs, presumably from being kept in a cage too small for him to move around.
As no one has the slightest idea of the history of these two dogs, rescuers decided to focus solely on their health.
“Some things cannot be explained. So we need to focus on their healing and recovery. “
