Lady's abuser was taped horribly abusing her while everyone laughed.

 

Some of you may have recently heard of an incredibly disturbing, emotional and painful situation involving a dog named Lady in Texarkana, Texas. Lady was deeply abused – brutalized – and it was filmed by the abuser and shared on Facebook. The footage is graphic. Lady has been through more than any animal ever should, which is why this may be the first case of its kind to be prosecuted under the new felony abuse law. This case is ongoing and we cannot comment further until the case is closed.

Austin Pets Alive! was contacted because of the immense help this sweet girl will need, and in Texas they are one of the only organizations that work extensively with pets who have extreme medical and behavior issues. The judge, in this case, wanted her to go to an organization that does a considerable amount of work with pit bulls and gives them every chance they deserve.  Austin Pets Alive’s medical triage center, dog behavior program and their expertise in working with the dogs that have no other options, who are often pit bull-type dogs, is why APA! was selected to receive Lady. 

“First and foremost, our expert behavior and medical teams will ensure that Lady now experiences the care, compassion, and love that all dogs should receive from humans,” said Mike Kaviani, Director of Lifesaving Operations at Austin Pets Alive!. “Her care will likely require months of support.”

She is currently receiving ongoing medical support for both physical and mental wounds. She has a broken leg and will be working closely with APA!’s behavior team for trauma support. We cannot save her without your help. If you could help with Lady’s extensive vetting we would greatly appreciate it. 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 for your Christmas gift list. It's a great gift to give to family and friends and you get to tell them they helped save Lady.


UPDATE 12-15-17:

Her name no longer is Lady. She is in a medical foster home which will work closely with their teams as they get to know Lady and assess all of her behavioral and medical needs. The pit bull is receiving ongoing medical care for a broken leg she sustained as she was thrown into a street. The APA behavior team is working closely with her on any fear and trust issues and any other emotional trauma. The sad reality is her care will likely require months of support. Lady's name was changed to protect her identity from those seeking to get her back to her original owners.

We cannot save her without your help. If you could help with Lady’s extensive vetting we would greatly appreciate it. 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 for your Christmas gift list. It's a great gift to give to family and friends and you get to tell them they helped save Lady.
