A recent incident in Philadelphia left a woman, Tara Whitaker, stunned as she found two bait dogs in a dreadful state sitting on her porch that were most likely used for dog fighting. The condition of the animals was alarming as they had broken bones, were malnourished and bleeding. Tara didn’t waste a single moment and spent three hours providing essential care to the dogs before animal control arrived. The Rescue Dogs Rock NYC took custody of the dogs where they were tended to and showered with love, possibly for the first time in their lives.
After the rescue group took in the dogs Tara was very thankful for their help and reached out to express her gratitude. She shared with them how hungry and thirsty Sweet Pea and Dizzy were, with Sweet Pea eating more than Dizzy who was in a lot of pain. It seemed that Dizzy spent most of his life in a cage as his legs were crooked and bent, causing him to sway back and forth in fear and pain. When animal control removed his leash, Dizzy couldn’t hold it in and relieved himself.
Tara made efforts to find a suitable rescue or an individual to take care of the dogs before the animal control authorities intervened. However, no one showed up to help, and she had to promise the dogs that she would find them a good rescue. Fortunately, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC came to their rescue and ensured that they were safe from being put down by the authorities while waiting to be taken in by a rescue. Tara expressed her gratitude for their timely intervention.
The Facebook page of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC shared a heartbreaking story about Dizzy and Sweet Pea. The dogs were found in terrible condition, and the organization expressed their sadness and disgust over the ordeal. Dizzy’s body was covered in bite wounds, while Sweet Pea had a swollen face. Due to their traumatic experience with dog fighting, Dizzy became fearful of humans. It is understandable why these dogs would have trust issues after the betrayal and abuse they suffered at the hands of humans.
The rescue organization aspires to spread the tale of these two pure-hearted canines, in order to enlighten individuals and enhance their understanding regarding the prevalence of dog fighting in society. They stress that it occurs not solely in specific regions such as Philadelphia or New York, but everywhere around us, hence, requiring a collective effort to put an end to this inhumane activity.
