Duke's owner died a week ago and he was viciously attacked!
This poor dog was viciously attacked by another dog. The owner of the dogs died about a week to 10 days ago. The neighbors have been feeding the dogs, outside in a pen. One of the dogs attacked the older senior male dog, who is named Duke. Duke is critical condition with a awful wound to his neck. He is not able to walk, and we have him being rushed to our emergency vet partner for lifesaving care. We could not let him suffer in an overcrowded shelter, with inadequate vet care. We desperately need your help for poor Duke. Please consider making a donation for his vet care at www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/donate What an terrible ordeal for poor Duke. To be left alone, not knowing what happened to his owner, and now fighting for his life!!Posted by Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs on Tuesday, January 31, 2017
This is heartbreaking. Dukes owner died a week ago. He had multiple dogs who were all thrown out in a pen in the yard. No family members came to help! So, the neighbors would come by to feed them but still no-one stepped up to help.
Then the worst happened. This poor dog was viciously attacked by another dog. One of the dogs attacked the older senior ripping him open. Still no one stopped to help him. Duke is critical condition with an awful wound to his neck. His head is swollen doubling its size. He is not able to walk. Thank god volunteers from Second Chance Rescue NYC have him being rushed to an emergency vet partner for lifesaving care. Rescuers said, “We could not let him suffer in an overcrowded shelter, with inadequate vet care.” Thank god for them! Now we need your help.
He has made it through the night and is much worse off than any of us expected. His protein levels are seriously low so he is getting a plasma transfusion, he's on lots of pain medications, and very strong antibiotics. He's not strong enough to be sedated to explore the abscess so he is receiving all the medical care possible to stabilize him. Continued thoughts and prayers are needed!
