We have another horrific abuse case that we have just taken into our rescue. We are just heartbroken for this older boy. Damien was found stumbling around, bare...ly able to stand. He weighs a mere 29 pounds! A dog his size should weigh 50-60 pounds. His rear leg appears to be broken, and it is covered in open sores and maggots. We know that this boy has been suffering for a very long time to get in this horrid condition. Why would anyone let an animal suffer like this? Damien is a older boy, about 9-10 years old. Who could let their pet waste away and leave a horrible injury untreated? We have rushed Damien to our vet partner for immediate medical treatment. They are not even sure that he is going to survive, his condition is critical. Again, we need to ask all of you, our amazing community of supporters for your help. We desperately need assistance with Damien's medical costs. We can not do this alone. Please consider helping us to give Damien a fighting chance. Go to www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/donate to support this save. We are all hoping and praying that this angel pulls through. We Love you Damien, your past is over and no one will hurt you ever again!
