Despite tougher sentences being imposed and more media coverage, cases of animal abuse continue.
I can understand how some animal owners find they can no longer look after their pets and have to find new homes for them but to dump them in pain, as one dog owner did, is unfathomable.
These two terrified puppies were found abandoned outside a rescue center tied to a fence with razor sharp wires that cut through their skin.
The pups were dumped outside Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) of Mississippi.
They were dumped late in the evening and spent the whole night crying in pain as the wire dug into their legs.

She added: “It is a holiday, all vets are full with boarding, and we owe all our vets tons. Looks like they tied them to our gate at 9:18 last night.”
Pup’s leg was saved
She immediately freed the pups and they were rushed to emergency veterinary care.
ARF staff had thought the puppy with the deep wound may lose its leg but thankfully they managed to save it.
The organization shared an update on the pups in a Facebook post which said: “The injured dog will keep his leg, is on antibiotics and regular cleaning and bandages change. Both are very sweet.”
ARF has also raised over US$1,000 for the pups’ medical care.
UPDATE! The pups are heartworm negative! Yea! The injured dog will keep his leg, is on antibiotics and regular…
I don’t understand how people can be so cruel. Please share to highlight this awful case and as a tribute to the animal heroes that work so hard to help our four-legged friends.
