The immense size of the human capacity for cruelty is something that will never cease to negatively amaze me. How is it possible that the same species that builds works of art, beautiful symphonies, multicultural encounters, vaccines that save thousands of lives can in turn be capable of so much evil and destruction? It’s something we will never understand.
Just as we will never be able to understand what the heart of a person can be like, capable of leaving a group of defenseless, hungry and sick puppies abandoned to their fate.
Especially when it was surely due to the negligence of that same person that the poor creatures ended up in that deplorable state.
The RescueDogsRockNyc team has gone out of its way to save a group of puppies abandoned in a box in front of an abandoned house in Atlanta, USA.
A good Samaritan heard the pitiful cry of the poor abandoned puppies fighting for their lives crying out for a thoughtful gesture that would allow them to be saved.
Without hesitation this person brought the puppies to a local animal shelter, but the condition of the puppies was already beyond what this shelter could handle.
As they do in most critical cases, they alerted the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC team for emergency help.
The approximately 6-week-old puppies weighed just 2 kilos each and were in serious condition.
The rescue team rushed them to a veterinary hospital specialized in these cases.
”Everyone has terrible scabies on every inch of their body, they have infections and they are anemic. One of the puppies had to be hooked up to oxygen, said Jackie O’Sullivan, co-founder of the organization. These puppies were fighting for their lives with all the strength they had left in their small, weak bodies.
The situation was urgent, the rescue team could not turn its back on these adorable little ones.
In their short lives they had known nothing but hunger, disease, pain and suffering.
The puppies received intravenous medications, IVs, and pain relievers.
The one in the most critical condition was a little boy who was too cold. His body temperature barely reached 34°C and it was feared that the little boy was septic.
The veterinarians did everything they could to help the puppies, the prognosis was very guarded and the costs of the medical emergency were very high.
Unfortunately, the puppy that was in critical condition did not manage to survive. The others are still fighting for their lives, they still have a long way to go but with the team of volunteers who support them they will be able to move forward and find a loving home.
