Toby: Starved, tortured and abused - - he is now fighting for his life.

Toby: Starved, tortured and abused - - he is now fighting for his life.

 

Just when you think things couldn't get any worse for our world's animals. Toby was thrown away like trash in the woods! In addition to being severely emaciated with his head and eyes completely sunken in. On top of being very thin, dehydrated and weak, His health had been neglected for so long it has deteriorated to the point that he can't eat or drink on his own - he can only intake his food with a feeding tube. As of right now he has been diagnosed with idiopathic nerve paralysis & dysphasia, he can't swallow. We can only imagine that the food going into his belly via the tube must feel like heaven to him.

Of all the photos of dogs that have come into our care lately- these have to be the toughest to view. It's just heartbreaking to have to come to grips with the fact that someone did this to him over time. WHY?! Who would be so cruel and heartless to torture a soul like this?! It really boggles the mind. So sad that because our rescue partners found him in the woods- there is no one to go after or hold accountable for this hideous cruelty. Our friends at Second Chance Rescue are saddened to know the monster responsible likely lives not far from where he is currently at the vet and walks among any of us, free to do this again. If anyone knows where this dog came from or who he belonged to, please reach out!! Be his voice!

Right now our main focus is on giving Toby the best care possible and to see him recovery from this heinous example of torture and abuse. We are sorry that we cannot change his past, but we can make a promise to give him the best possible future!

He is one lucky boy to be alive. we cannot wait to get him healthy and strong, we hope that in a short time, his eyes will have gone from completely hopeless to maybe showing a little bit of hope! To see him trying to walk is one of the most heartbreaking experiences to witness. He is the worst of the worst of the starvation cases, every bit as bad as poor Griffin.

We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue NYC to raise the funds needed for Toby's care. With every shirt, hoodie, necklace or bracelet purchased, we will donate $10 to help save Toby.


UPDATE

Toby is now able to swallow on his own and hopefully he will be able to regain his muscle function and chew so that the feeding tube no longer has to be put to use. He seems to have a glimmer of hope in his eyes finally but by no means does this convey that he is out of the woods. Toby will continue to require round the clock care. These cases are touch and go and leave you on pins and needles. If anyone knows where this dog came from or who is responsible, we beg of you to reach out! We can't possibly fathom how this would go unnoticed—his body is a cry for help.

Second Chance Rescue is now offering a reward . If you have any information please contact S.C.R. at www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/contact/ . We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue NYC to raise the funds needed for Toby's care. With every shirt, hoodie, necklace or bracelet purchased, we will donate $10 to help save Toby.
