Bendito was practically unrecognizable as a dog.
New York Bully Crew received a plea from The Humane Society of Puerto Rico. Volunteers received notice of a dog, severely wounded and infected, starved and in desperate need of rescuing. When rescuers reached the dog they were not prepared with what the saw.
They reached out to New York Bully Crew to see if they could track and get him to safety. Volunteers on the ground found and brought Bendito to the hospital immediately this morning for emergency medical care. He is in bad shape and we need your support to help get him stable. We have created this campaign to help raise the funds for little Bendito.
Notice the cropped ears. He was someone's dog but by the looks of his emaciated frame and long nails, he has been on the streets for a long time. The reality is who ever abused Bedito dumped him when they were done.
As rescuers wait for some results of preliminary tests, Bendito is sedated to keep him comfortable as the medical team attend to him. The NYBC team does not know what happened to Bendito, but they have promised to do whatever is best for him and that he knows we a fighting for him and that he is safe. We will not give up on him and we hope you won’t too.
UPDATE 1-4-18: CT SCAN RESULTS show a huge invasive mass which is most likely cancer. It has deteriorated the front of his skull and it appears to be aggressive. The news is defeating but rescuers will do everything we can to keep Bendito comfortable and surrounded by love. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Remember, he has been hospitalized and treated since he was rescued so his medical costs are high. This is not the diagnosis we had hoped for but we still have to give him the very best care with specific treatment.
This is where we are asking for your help! His care will cost in the thousands and that is just not the type of funds New York Bully Crew has. We have stepped in to help in our own little way. We have created the Animal Abuse Awareness shirts, hoodies, totes and bracelets you see below. We ask that if you would consider one of these items to help fund his continued care.
New York Bully Crew
New York Bully Crew is a 501c3 not-for-profit rescue organization founded in December 2010. Though based on Long Island, NYBC’s outreach is nationwide. We specialize in rescuing Pitbulls, however no animal in dire need of rescue is turned away. NYBC strives to bring positive attention to the most loyal breed one could encounter, and give second chances to those who have been discarded by humans simply because of what they are…a Pitbull.
