An event involving Philly Rescue Angels, a group that is typically committed to saving and caring for abandoned dogs, has received a lot of attention since it was heinous and awful.
One late night in Pennsylvania, USA, a group of foundation staff members came across a severely injured and abandoned puppy on a train.
We arrived to find him motionless. His back leg was immobilized, said Sidara Son.
They initially thought that Lucky, the dog, had been hit by a train, but they soon understood that the situation was far worse: Lucky's previous owners had severely harmed it. The son remarked, "I guess they left it to disguise the fact that they shattered his back and used the train to cover it up.
They even had more evidence to suspect that they intentionally hurt the dog when they found a leash and an unfastened collar at the site.
Lucky was taken straight to a veterinary hospital, where his serious spinal cord damage is being treated. He will have surgery, but there is already no way to fix his spine, so the operation will only make him feel better.
It's still unclear if the dog will live because of its serious illnesses, cracked teeth, and possibly deadly spinal injuries. The cost of Lucky's surgery and recovery will also range from $15,000 to $35,000, but they are optimistic that they can raise the money needed through donations and that Lucky will be able to overcome his challenges.
He's been the target of everyone's relentless efforts to save him. He battled for his life, and we will fight for him, said the son.
