Missing dog was dragged behind a car and left for dead.
(Eunice, LA) - On April 6th, an owner of a three year old pit bull noticed that her was dog missing. A day later the dog was found in a ditch unable to move. The dog had been dragged behind a car by an unknown abuser. Now the dog needs your help. We have created this week’s animal saving shirt design to help save his life.
The owner was contacted and reunited with her dog, who was found to have sustained serious life-threatening injuries. The owner brought the dog to a nearby vet for an examination. The dog suffered multiple 'road burns' along his body, had open lesions and burns on the pads of his paws. Large areas of the dog's fur had been rubbed off, exposing dark burnt skin.
The investigation to locate the individual(s) responsible for the dog's injuries remains open. Any one with additional information on this matter is asked to call the Acadia Animal Control Department at 337-788-1073
The owner, realizing that she could not properly care for her dog, surrendered him to the Acadia Animal Shelter. The HSLA has agreed to pay for its on-going medical care and has started a medical fund for the dog. Miraculously, he is expected to make a full recovery with your help!
UPDATE 5-18-17: Several weeks ago, "Nala" was dragged behind a moving vehicle and found lying in a ditch, unable to move. Fortunately, Tim Beniot, Director of the Acadia Animal Control Department, located in Crowley, Louisiana, responded to the call and was able to rescue the injured dog. Tim later contacted the Humane Society of Louisiana which agreed to pay for the medical care of Nala. Nala is now available for adoption!
