Clyde: Strangled with a belt by his owner.
We contacted by Scouts Honor Rescue about their latest save. SHR rescued this wonderful boy on Friday and now they need our help! His name is Clyde and his "owners" are under investigation and will hopefully be prosecuted. We are beyond thrilled that his abusers will face consequences for their actions. This is rare in animal abuse cases.
We are now focused on saving Clyde's life. He was strangled with a belt by his abuser/owners. The belt was removed from around his neck and left a gruesome injury. The restriction caused by the belt made his face swell significantly. He is also grossly underweight and has no doubt suffered severe abuse for a long time.
He's staying at their ER vet and getting 24 hour care. He is still in critical condition. He's so sweet and it's obvious he's not used to people being nice to him. He now is starting to wag his tail when we talk to him and lifts his head up for pets instead of cowering when anyone gets close to him. Its heart breaking to see how he has been mentally and physically abused.
Clyde has endured the unthinkable, absolutely horrifying abuse! But you can help him! Saving Clyde is as simple as wearing a tee! We have partnered with Scout's Honor Rescue in creating this week's animal-saving shirt, long sleeve and hoodie design to help us raise funds needed for Clyde's recovery. Please, if you are able, consider purchasing an item below to help save this baby's life!
UPDATE 4-25-17: Happy update on our boy Clyde! Rescuers visited him this morning at their vet and he's doing amazing! He was in great spirits and bouncing around so full of life! He's seriously the cutest! His neck is healing up, but he still has to wear a bandage.
Update on his abuse case. We heard from BARC that all evidence has been turned over to the Harris County DA's office and we are hoping they pursue his former "owner" to the fullest extent!
Scout's Honor Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all-breed/mixed breed dog and cat rescue organization that focuses on rescuing and placing homeless dogs and cats in Houston, Texas and surrounding areas. We are one of the very few rescues that will take in the sick, the injured, the old, the ugly (although we don't think so!) and those that are the most unloved on a regular basis. Scout's Honor was formed in May 2006, and is often the last resort for the homeless and needy animals left abandoned to die in pounds or on the mean streets.
