Zeus was mutilated and violated.

Zeus was mutilated and violated.

 

Zeus was mutilated and violated in a deliberately brutal and personal way. On May 9th, Zeus was found on the side of the road in Wilson, NC. The finder reported that Zeus had been viciously and brutally mutilated by an unknown attacker in a most personal way - to his penis.

Rescuers were told his options were: (1) Get immediate rescue OR (2) be put to sleep because he needed urgent medical care. The team at Rescue Dogs Rock took one look at this poor victim and knew they had to step in and save his life. Now, they need your help! We know you have stepped up on some of our most horrific cases so we are again pleading for you help with Zeus. We cannot begin to fathom what more he has been through that we do not know.

Zeus will have reconstructive surgery on Thursday, May 11th to reconstruct his genitals. We know this is probably one of the most horrific pictures we have shown but we have to. We refuse to hide what some monster did. It is painful to read his story, but even more painful to see the damage.

He is urgent. He is critical. And time is very important. He is currently on heavy pain medications and IV fluids waiting for surgery. Their veterinary partners have been working to stabilize Zeus and help him to be strong enough to have surgery. His day is here, it cannot wait longer.

What we are doing is raising the donations that are needed to help pay for Zeus' reconstructive surgery. There is no easy way to say it. And no way around asking. This will be a costly undertaking. His rescuers vow to stand at his side and help him to be whole again and so do we. 


UPDATE 5-14-17: Zeus is having a good post 3 procedure surgery day! This poor thing. He's eating, drinking & urinating so we will say yesterday was a huge success!


UPDATE 5-16-17: Next week, Zeus will finally be released from the vet clinic, and he’ll travel to New York City to find his forever family. And his teddy will be coming with him, O’Sullivan said.

“In rescue, we see a lot of the ugly, so it’s nice to see a dog come out on the other side, and be happy and healthy and ready to go home,” O’Sullivan said.

“The best part of the story is that good triumphs evil,” O’Sullivan added. “This didn’t ruin him, it didn’t ruin his life. The dog wins, and he’s going to go on to have an amazing life, and he should have plenty of offers for a home.”


UPDATE 5-21-17: Just two weeks ago, in Wilson, North Carolina, an urgent plea went out on social media to help an emaciated, stray dog; someone had slashed the pup’s genitals and then dropped him off at the edge of the woods. A group effort, with a combined small but strong army of animal advocates, launched into action:“Thank God for Talia Sutton who STOPPED and stayed with Zeus until AC arrived. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC for saying YES! Most importantly thank you to the gang at Wilson County Humane Society who jumped in feet first and never looked back. BECAUSE of ALL of you folks Zeus gets his miracle. I know he has a long road ahead of him, but I am confident he will live up to his name, and “shine” through his journey. THANK YOU again to to everyone who stepped up,” animal rescuer Kim Edmondson posted on her Facebook page.

As good so often overcomes evil, Zeus is healing both physically and emotionally. This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with Rescue Dogs Rock to create the animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save both Zeus. Purchase your animal saving tee today and give him the second chance at life he deserves.
