Yeti: Abuser cuts off dogs nose and toes...
This is Yeti, initially he's difficult to look at, but spend a few minutes with him, and his injuries fade away. He is a sweet, kind, and loving soul. Yeti was picked up as stray in a rural suburb of Kansas City, with catastrophic injuries. This story broke our hearts.
At first glance the shelter doctors thought he may have advanced cancer. Midwest Animal Resq was called, and they came to pick up what they thought would be a terminal case. Rescuers went straight to their emergency vet, where an exam, and bloodwork have shown these injuries are inflicted by a blade. Someone cut off his nose and some of his toes.
MARQ will get more results back on Monday, and we will then come up with a game plan of reconstructive surgeries to make this sweet Boxer whole again.
Animal abuse is real. There is also a real link between animal abuse and other sociopathic behavior. If you see abuse, please report it. Also please press your local and state government to pass stronger legislation against animal abusers. I shudder to think what the person responsible for cutting off the nose and toes of dog could do to another person!
Midwest Animal ResQ receives no funding, they rely on the kind generosity of people like us to continue to fight for dogs like Yeti. We have partnered with Midwest Animal ResQ to create this week's animal saving t-shirt design! Please, if you can, purchase one of our Yeti + MARQ items below! With your help this victim of abuse can get the second chance at life he deserves!
