5,000$ WILL BE AWARDED TO ANYONE WHO PROVIDES INFORMATION ABOUT THE PERSON(S) RESPONSIBLE FOR STARVING DOG AND LOCKING HER IN A WIRE CAGE.
Watch a video of this helpless starving dog down below. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is offering $5,000 for anyone who gives information on the identity or whereabouts of the person or persons responsible for this dog’s abuse.
The poor thing was found last Wednesday almost starved to death in a wired crate in North Austin, according to CBS Austin. The rescuers decided to name the one-year-old pup Sophie
Veterinarians did not think the little Boxer would make it; she was hypothermic and emaciated, but she proved everyone wrong when she gained 4 pounds in a single week.
The Austin Animal Center posted an update on their Facebook page saying that little Sophie is getting stronger and stronger with each passing day, and she is currently being showered with so much love that she can’t handle.
Remember Sophie? She is the sweet pup we took in after she was found in a kennel on the side of the road starving and on the brink of death. Sophie was incredibly thin, anemic and we didn’t know if she would survive.
And will you look at Sophie now! She is up and walking around! She’s also gained four pounds already since the first day she was found. She still needs a lot of time to gain weight and heal; so she needs all the loving vibes she can get! It will be a while before she can be adopted; but in the mean time, give Sophie some encouraging words; so her foster mom can read them to her before bed tonight.
If you have information about the abuser call the Austin Police Department at 512.978.0523
