Philly Rescue Angels is a group dedicated to rescuing and taking care of neglected dogs. However, one particular incident they dealt with recently has gained significant exposure due to its cruel and appalling nature.
The story started when a bunch of foundation workers stumbled upon a deserted puppy in Pennsylvania, USA. The puppy was severely injured and unable to move. Sidara Son, an employee at the foundation, informed NBC10 that the dog’s leg was completely lifeless. At first, they assumed that the pup, whom they named Lucky, had been hit by a train. However, they soon discovered that things were far worse than that. Lucky had been brutally abused by its previous owners. Son suspects that they dumped the dog near a railroad track to conceal the fact that they had broken its back and used a train to cover up their heinous act.
As a matter of truth, a leash and a collar that appeared to have been taken off were discovered in the area. This adds further weight to their belief that the perpetrator purposefully harmed the animal.
As soon as Lucky was discovered to have complex spinal cord injuries, he was rushed to a veterinary facility. The medical staff is currently tending to him and providing the necessary treatment to alleviate his pain. Unfortunately, they have determined that reconstructing his spine is not feasible, so the operation will only serve to ease his discomfort.
The puppy’s fate remains uncertain as it has sustained severe injuries such as infected scrapes, damaged teeth, and a potentially fatal spinal injury. Meanwhile, Lucky’s medical treatment and recovery are expected to incur costs ranging from $15,000 to $35,000. Despite these challenges, they remain optimistic that with the help of generous donations, they can overcome the financial burden and ensure that Lucky makes a full recovery. The rescue team has been tirelessly devoted to saving the pup, and they vow to continue their efforts until he fully recovers. Son expressed their unwavering commitment, stating, “He fought for his life, and we will fight for him.”
