A team of dedicated animal rescuers is functioning round the clock to worry for a senior poodle that was a victim of unimaginable abuse. After being found during a desperate state by an honest Samaritan, Petal is now at an area animal hospital, fighting for her life.
The good Samaritan was driving down the road when she passed what seemed like a stuffed animal beginning of a transparent bag . After pulling over to research further, she was horrified by what she discovered.
Laying next to a bag was a malnourished Poodle sprawled on the recent summer cement. Her mouth was taped shut with adhesive tape , along side each of her legs being tied together. Though she wasn’t found inside the bag , the rescue believes she had already wiggled herself out by the time she was discovered.
Once the great Samaritan realized the gravity of things , she immediately jumped into action to save lots of the dog’s life. She saw an area business posing for scissors to chop the dog free, and called the local animal control to tell them of things . Soon after, Poodle and Pooch Rescue stepped in to supply their skilled assistance.
“This wasn’t even just throwing the dog away, this was torture.” – Rebecca Lynch, President of Poodle and Pooch Rescue
Rebecca Lynch of Poodle and Pooch Rescue stepped in and arranged for the pup to be transferred to the care of the East Orlando Animal Hospital. consistent with Dr. Peters, the abused pup was severely dehydrated, malnourished, anemic, and battling an infection in both eyes. After being lovingly named Petal, the team need to work on saving this sweet girl’s life.
“She was so weak she was unable to face on her own. She is on four times/day feedings and she’s been ravenous, but must be fed slowly in several feedings so she doesn’t get sick. Every hour she has been improving but remains not out of the woods yet.” – Rebecca Lynch, President of Poodle and Pooch Rescue
Petal has been receiving care at the animal hospital for about 2 weeks now and is claimed to be improving by the day. A recent video shows her walking through their yard with the assistance of a vet tech offering her back-end support with each step she takes. She has yet to muster the strength to use her rear legs on her own, but she is certainly giving it all she’s got.
The team at the animal hospital is unsure if her back legs are weak thanks to neurological issues or muscle atrophy, but they hope it’ll become clearer as time passes. Petal features a team of dedicated animal advocates on her side, along side the support of animal lovers round the country.
Petal isn’t yet strong enough to be adopted, but the team at Poodle and Pooch Rescue urges any interested adopters to stay up together with her journey. The rescue has promised to supply updates as they are available , so we propose following along and supporting their efforts.
“A human tortured her and that we want to point out her that not all humans are bad. this is often why we do what we do to save lots of dogs in need within the Central Florida area.” – Rebecca Lynch, President of Poodle and Pooch Rescue
