Sampson was intentionally starved by his owner... who is being charged for abuse!

Sampson was intentionally starved by his owner... who is being charged for abuse!

 

When rescuers first got this particular plea, their collective hearts shattered!! WHY WHY WHY does this keep happening to these poor innocent dogs?! No dog should EVER look like this. Meet Sampson, an unlucky victim of INTENTIONAL starvation!!!! What is our world coming to?!

Rescue Dogs rock had Sampson at a 24/7 ER vet since the end of last week, but they are only now allowed to share his story and that is the good news! He will not go unnoticed with no justice like every other "stray". Sampson had an owner and he was SEIZED from his "home" as part of a cruelty case. Best of all, his "owner" was charged today WHO HOO! This rarely happens in rescue.

Sampson is clearly SEVERELY EMACIATED. He is covered in infected wounds, mostly on his swollen front legs and has a deep hole behind his ear. A volunteer who met him described it as being deep and likely from an ice pic. We are heartbroken and sickened over this poor dog's past, but his time at the "house of horrors" is OVER!!!! Never again will he suffer in silence enduring ongoing torture because he is SAFE.

Sampson remains on IV fluids and antibiotics and has a very long road back! He had to be carried to the car the day rescuers took him, too weak to stand or walk! 

We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create this week's animal saving t-shirt design! Please, if you can, purchase one of our Sampson + RDR items below! With your help this victim of abuse can get the second chance at life he deserves!

[ UPDATE 1 ] The horror and shock continue over Sampson's terrible physical condition. He was seized 12 days ago and can still barely walk or stand. He is so thin, you cannot look at him without welling up with tears at how his previous owner could be so heartless, sadistic and cruel. 

We are so happy Sampson was lucky enough to be seized from his "house of horrors" we are so happy this "owner" was charged in these heinous crimes last week because this type of cruelty will not stop until people are held accountable! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

[ UPDATE 2 ] Look and this Incredible transformation! Sampson has gained 10 lbs and is loving his new and improved life! He continues to get stronger every day ... You can still support Sampson and Rescue Dogs Rock in his recovery with one simple tee! 

We MUST stand together against cruelty and abuse! We are much more powerful together than alone! Please still help us with Sampson if you can, purchase one of our Sampson + RDR items below!
