Cami's owners watched as their dog wasted away to nothing.
Justice has to prevail in another heartbreaking case of animal cruelty in Texas. Her “owners” watched as their nameless dog suffered ay after day. Our partners at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC knew if they didn’t act fast she would not survive. We have created this campaign to raise the funds needed for her veterinary care.
As her medical condition spiraled to near death, neighbors rallied animal advocates in the area begging for help. RDR rushed to the scene and found something no-one was expecting.
“Skin and bones and never fed by her owners,” wrote co-founder of the rescue organization, Stacey Silverstein. “Her skin is like cement from pure and utter neglect for months, hairless! She has one of the worst cases of mange we have ever seen in our years in rescue.”
Neighbors had tried to feed her and watched with tears in their eyes as the loyal dog would take cover in a well just to escape the harsh weather outside where she lived. Often she would lie on the front mat of her home, and she thought her owners loved her. Never was she allowed in the house.
“What a pathetic and sad existence of this ‘no name dog’ ,” Stacey added on Facebook Tuesday morning. “Finally the neighbors couldn’t stand looking at her anymore and called a fellow rescuer for help, who in turn, asked us to help.”
Rescues have named her Cami and now Cami’s story is perhaps even more heartbreaking as her callous owners watched from their living room window as dog fought not to leave her horrible home; obviously thinking this was her family even though they treated her like trash.
Cami has been transferred to the organization’s veterinary partners and is now receiving life saving treatment. This dog’s nightmare is over. A complaint has been filed with the local sheriff’s office and all veterinarian records will be forwarded to prove the dog’s severe neglect.
To help save Cami please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. We have partnered with RDR to create these animal saving products to raise the funds needed to save little Cami.
