Smithers was horrifically abused by neighborhood kids.
I was contacted by Second Chance Rescue NYC about a cat found by police. I worn you this story is disturbing. I don’t even know where to begin. Smithers was found by an officer and and was told this abuse was done by the neighborhood kids. Smithers had foreign objects HORRIFICALLY INSERTED in his rectum and his entire tail SKINNED off —— so precisely as if these young men sat there holding his little body down and with a blade - cutting slowly around the beginning of his tail and yanking his skin off.
We cannot imagine the amount of pain he has endured. Smithers has internal bleeding, major internal trauma, his rectum is ripped up, internal bleeding, horrific injuries from being skinnier alive and beat.
We need your help. We want to remind everybody that this is an active investigation and unfortunately all the information we can share with you — is all the information authorities can share with Second Chance Rescue. Rescuers know that law enforcement is taking this very seriously. We Have a great respect for the officer that rescued Smithers and the team of investigators on this case.
UPDATE 9-20-18: Smithers made it through his surgery! It was the last worry we had as any surgical procedure comes with risk. Smithers tail was removed and he is doing phenomenal. It’s amazing what you can do with love and an amazing medical team. What happened to Smithers was down right disturbing and we can’t take back what happened to him but we can sure as heck make sure the rest of his life is filled with love and happiness. Smither’s case is still an active investigation so Second Chance Rescue NYC will update you on that when they have more information to share.
Now we must focus on support Second Chance Rescue in raising the funds they need for Smithers multiple surgeries including the amputation on his tail.
