Scruffles: Abused and left to die in a cardboard box on the road.
Remember the sad boy we rescued who was left in a box on the side of a busy Long Island highway? It is Mr Scruffles, and he is doing really well in his foster home. His skin is calming down from the red infected areas. He has been bathed and is on antibiotics. He also has a hernia, which will need to be surgically repaired. He is in a wonderful foster home getting lots of love, and being shown what it means to be a family member. He still needs your help!

We were absolutely horrified when we were alerted to a dog who had been abused and left to die in a cardboard box along side a busy road in Long Island NY. Thankfully Second Chance Rescue NYC stepped up to save this poor baby. They named him Scruffles.
He is a mid-aged shih-tzu, who is not only deformed on his front legs, he is suffering terribly from demodex mange, dry eye, and his fur was terribly matted and filled with feces and urine. To think of the suffering that this little boy must have endured day after day, is disturbing.
Doctors are not certain if his deformed legs are due to human abuse or if he was kept in a small crate for a long period of time which could have caused the deformity. Our hearts are broken for him, and we can not understand how anyone could leave this helpless boy on the side of a very busy road in a box to die.
SCR will do everything to make his heart and body whole again. They have rushed Scruffles to the emergency vet this morning, where he will be treated and assessed. They will give him top notch medical care, and have his legs examined by an orthopedic specialist. Scruffles has a long road ahead of him, but we are here for the long haul, and we will see it through. Will you help us? Please consider purchasing an item above to help us raise the funds needed for his care!
