Hanged with Shoestring, Beaten, Tied with Duct Tape and Left to Die

SnoopyBlogNewUPDATE

Snoopy had all of the duct tape and the shoelace tied around his neck removed. As you can see in the new picture, he is getting a much needed bath and is looking incredible! Gone is the tape that bound his mouth shut, gone is the shoelace tied so tightly around his neck that he almost died. Gone is the life of living alone, unwanted and abused.


Snoopy is only 3-4 years old, but the life he has had to live has been nothing more than agonizing.

Our friends at Second Chance Rescue in New York rescued Snoopy just a couple of days ago from a housing project in the South Bronx. When found, he had a string or shoelace tightly tied around his neck & had apparently been hanged & beaten. The rescue had no idea who he belonged to or who did this to him, but witnesses said he was left there for a few days behind the building. He was left out in the rain & no one helped him until this morning.

Snoopy has a long road to recovery, not just for the abuse, torture and physical ailments, but for the mental turmoil for being hanged, beaten and left to die. Once healthy, Snoopy will be up for adoption.

snoopyWe have partnered with Second Chance Rescue in New York to create the STAND UP FOR SNOOPY tee dedicated to raising the funds needed for his recovery and continued care. You can either donate directly at Second Chance Rescue’s website or you can purchase the STAND UP FOR SNOOPY tee which triggers a life-saving donation to help with his mounting vet bills. Together we can see that Snoopy gets that second chance at love and life he deserves.

Special Needs Senior Dog NEEDS HELP!

May 28th, 2013

maggie-blog

maggie-blog-2Sometimes there is no thinking, there is no debating, there is no time. The crew over at Mutt Match L.A. does not shy away from the sick, injured or special needs medical cases so when they saw the sad photo of a dog impounded at the Bakersfield shelter they didn’t think twice, Mutt Match LA jumped into action to save her. It didn’t matter what breed she was or what medical issues laid behind the horrific condition, no animal should ever live in such misery of neglect! The shelter was immediately contacted to let them know Mutt Match L.A. was committed to getting her out. It took a tag team of compassionate animal lovers but in less then a few hours she was out of the shelter and on her way to our private vet for a full exam.

They named her Maggie Mae in honor of a Lancaster pup who never had a chance at life outside the shelter. Maggie was examined by a vet, received a full senior blood panel and this is what we know so far. She has an infection in both ears, they were so badly infected, I’ve really never seen ears so bad! She doesn’t seem to hear at all right now so we’ll just have to wait to see if once the infection clears she responds but it is possible the years of neglect have left her ear drums damaged. She is totally blind in one eye and probably only sees shadows in the other. She does not have mange but her skin is so red and angry from all the severe matting. Hopefully some cool Oatmeal baths, good nutrition, shelter and a nice soft bed will make her comfortable and help restore a beautiful coat. She has some lumps & dumps but the veterinarian team didn’t want to aspirate them just yet so we’ll monitor them for now. She’s missing a lot of teeth and will need a dental but for now they want her to eat, sleep, relax and know she’s in a safe place before poking & proding at her.
She’s very sweet but a little dazed. She was a bit anxious wondering around aimlessly at her foster’s house which I hope too will subside when

she realizes her luck just changed!

STANDUP-womens-tWe have partnered with  Mutt Match L.A. to create the STAND UP FOR MAGGIE MAE tee dedicated to raising the funds needed for her recovery and continued care. You can either donate directly via pay pal at muttmatchla@aol.com (make sure to say Hendrick Boards sent you) or you can purchase the STAND UP FOR MAGGIE MAE tee which triggers a life saving donation to help with her vet bills. Together we can see that Maggie Mae gets that second chance at love and live she deserves.

UPDATE on dog found sealed shut in a plastic bag.
http://hendrickboards.com/s/save-chamsky

Eight days ago Champ’s life changed forever. Although he didn’t know it, what was his darkest hour was also the beginning of a new life. He will have a long hard recovery, but he WILL recover. He’s a CHAMP!

He is eating well, but he will not drink water from a bowl. Because of this, S.A.F.E. Animal Rescue feeding him water with a syringe which he takes readily. I’m sure he’ll drink from the bowl eventually, but for now we’re perfectly okay giving him water this way. He’s not dehydrated and his wounds are healing well. There are still 3 wounds that are open and draining, but they’re not infected and getting better every day.

He sleeps almost all the time, as he is badly in need of rest to recover. When he goes to the yard to potty, he’s alert and aware of what’s happening around him. He just doesn’t have a lot of energy to pursue his interests right now.
He’s getting up a couple of steps on his own, but the last one is just a little too difficult for him so we give him a hand.

Your generous donations and support have been a huge help. Thank you! Because of you, he’s enjoying the softest blankets he’s ever felt in his life, has toys to snuggle with, and has the very best food and supplements with chicken and rice.

****END UPDATE****

When working in animal welfare you think you have seen it all. Then we heard of a story so tragic and overwhelmingly sad we knew we had to reach out and help the animal. This is a story about how a dog was found sealed shut in a plastic bag and left on a desk at the West Valley Animal Shelter. The photos and story you are about to read are graphic. Animal abuse affects us all. It is our responsibility to protect these animals.

The pups name is Chamsky. He was brought in a SEALED plastic bag and left on the clerk’s counter. When the clerk opened it, thinking it was a delivery package, she saw what she thought was a dead dog. After all, he was BLUE , covered with blood and wounds and not moving! The clerk rushed the animal to their onsite clinic. The veterinarian staff at the shelter was able to revive the animal. He was a matted and his body has untreated, infected wounds all over. They shaved him down and discovered ulcers covering most of his body. He is extremely malnourished, weighing only 7 lbs. This type of abuse takes time. Meaning the animal had to be in this condition for a while before his abusers sealed him alive in a plastic bag and dumped him on a desk. Just typing this story breaks my heart. Knowing what pain and torture he must have been through… like I said just when you think you have heard and seen it all.

The staff at the shelter were able to catch his abusers (a couple) in the parking lot who left him for dead after abuse and neglect. His abusers are now being prosecuted for animal cruelty. Chamsky has been held as evidence for the past week.  S.A.F.E. Animal Rescue will be the organization caring for this amazing pup. Chamsky will be on his way to WLVH/Dr. Slaton to get a complete checkup and get him back on the road to recovering. DONATIONS for his medical care are needed. Please consider donating to help this guy have a bright future. You can either donated directly here Safeanimalrescue.com/donations OR purchase one of our ADOPT DONT SHOP tees triggering a live saving donation for Chamsky and his recovery. An animal in his condition will have a long road to recovery but together we can help save his life !

Dumped by her owner- Save Roxy.

May 14th, 2013

Untitled-1

**WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES**

Meet Roxy. She was abandoned by her owner in this condition. She is obviously a victim of animal neglect. Emaciated and covered with severe mange. Roxy  is a 35 pound puppy Bull Mastiff and Staff mix. Clearly this situation could have been completely avoided if she had been treated much sooner. Second Chance Rescue NYC got her out as soon as they could, as they could not leave her there in pain, suffering and bleeding.

She is super sweet and holds no grudges. She is currently at a local veterinarian clinic in N.Y.  and will be up for adoption after her recovery.

A0964873roxy2 5-10-2013 8-11-31 PM 2268x1699This is a note from her rescuer.

” She licked my hand for most of the drive from M.A.C.C. (NY) to the vets in Queens. She sits on command, takes treats very gently, did not react when other dogs growled and barked at her and is fairly good on a leash. Her mange is very bad, and her skin is raw with deep sores on her face, but she was still playful and sweet, wanted to jump up for hugs but able to subdue herself. SecondChance Rescue needs donations for her”

adopt-dont-shopt-womens-tWe have partnered with Second Chance Rescue NYC to create the ADOPT DONT SHOP tee dedicated to raising the funds needed for her recovery. An animal this badly neglected will have a long road to recovery, but it is something we can do together! Roxy deserve that second chance at love and family. You can donate directly to her care or with every purchase of our ADOPT DONT SHOP tee we will send a donation in your honor to her care. Every dollar can bring Roxy that much closer to a life full of love and pain free.

Found Completely Blind, Black and Blue is Bruised and Broken

May 8th, 2013

blue-blogSweet “Black and Blue” is bruised and broken! He urgently needs our help. Poor Blue is severely emaciated (at just 17 pounds – at least 10 pounds underweight). He is all bones! Blue is completely blind, with only one eye bulging with glaucoma, which is surely causing him immense pain (the other eye is missing altogether). He has clearly been on the streets for a while, ultimately proving unable to fend for himself, even in garbage cans. Had he not been turned into the shelter, we believe he would have died of hunger, most likely within days.

Sweet “Black and Blue” is bruised and broken! He urgently needs our help. Poor Blue came to Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Inc. from the Manhattan shelter where he was brought in as a stray. He is severely emaciated (at just 17 pounds – at least 10 pounds underweight). He is all bones! Blue is completely blind, with only one eye bulging with glaucoma which is surely causing him immense pain (the other eye is missing altogether).

He has clearly been on the streets for a while, ultimately proving unable to fend for himself, even in garbage cans. Had he not been turned into the shelter, we believe he would have died of hunger, most likely within days. Dogs do not get any more vulnerable than this. Blue is working hard to regain sufficient strength to be put under anesthesia to perform the necessary surgery on his eye. He urgently needs an injection to the remaining eye to relieve the terrible glaucoma pain and pressure he has somehow managed to endure.

Blue is in such bad nutritional shape that it is difficult to assess how old he is. The shelter thought he might be a senior but the vet is inclined to think he could be much younger. Life (and human neglect) have left this poor dog bruised and battered. In his mind and in his heart, he is utterly black and blue. Please help Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue bring Blue back from the brink.

Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Inc. has created a donation page for Blue: http://www.youcaring.com/pet-expenses/emergency-please-help-black-blue-/58135. You may also send a check directly to Abandoned Angels to: P.O. Box 545426, Flushing, NY 11354. Abandoned Angels is a registered 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible.

We have partnered with Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue to help raise funds for Blue and his recovery. His road to recovery will be long but with your help we can see that he is given that second chance at love and life he deserves. With every purchase of the Equal Animal Rights tee or hoodie, we will send a donation in your honor to help save Blue.
