Animal abuse is sadly being committed against innocent animals every single day. Each time we see news like this one, it just breaks our hearts. It’s too cruel.
Each time news like this pops up on our news-feed, we can’t help but think, how can anyone be so heartless??
When a photo of an abandoned adult dog and her puppies went viral on the internet, a local animal shelter stepped in to help.
On April 26, a 5-year-old boxer mix named Dory and her nine 2-week-old puppies were dumped in a church parking lot in Abilene, Texas, and were rescued by Paw Angel Animal Rescue, which is also located in Abilene.
“Dumped in the parking lot of a church in Abilene. All of the Rescues are completely full. After seeing the picture of the abandoned pets on Facebook, the shelter posted, “Foster needed asap.” Situation is changing. Two Paw Angel volunteers are already on their way.”
One of the volunteers, Misty Boerger, told local ABC affiliate station KTXS12, “I saw the picture and it just broke my heart, so I called Angel and we went and rescued the dogs.”
“I just don’t understand how someone could abandon momma and two-week-old babies,” she continued.
Angel Urban, who rescued the dogs with Boerger, told the outlet that Dory was injured when they found her.
“We discovered a lot of open and draining wounds on her,” Urban said.
Dory’s wounds were compounded by the fact that one of her puppies, Peach, had a throat tumor and had to be euthanized as a result.
Dory and her eight surviving pups are healthy and ready to be adopted into their forever homes, according to Paw Angel Animal Rescue.
Last week, the group shared an adorable photo of three puppies cuddling together, as well as the news that they have a new kennel to spend their time in.
