For reasons unbeknownst to us, there are people out there who think it’s okay to neglect, a.buse and kill dogs. One evil person decided to bound two puppies to a fence outside of a rescue center in Jackson, Mississippi, using razor sharp wire.
The puppies were petrified and yelped out in pain, as the wire was cutting deeply into one of the pup’s legs.
Thankfully, an employee at the Animal Rescue Fund, named Pippa Jackson, discovered the poor pups the next morning and quickly snapped photos to document the a.buse. She then freed them and posted the photos on Facebook to share her disgust.
Jackson and fellow rescue workers brought the dogs for emergency vet care at Northside Pet Clinic. Both are doing okay and are currently on antibiotics. Thankfully, the puppy with the deep leg wound is expected to heal okay and won’t need amputation.
Once their wounds have healed more, they will be placed with fosters before finding their furever homes.
This was a senseless act that could have been prevented. While leaving dogs on a rescue’s doorstep without notifying them isn’t suggested, it still would have been better than tying up these poor dogs.
Pippa Jackson claims that their surveillance cameras captured a police officer driving by while the person tied the dogs to the fence, but there is currently no suspect in custody.
