At the end of August and dog was found near death in Quincy, MA--dubbed "Puppy Doe" her injuries were so bad that all they could do was give her some food and water, show her some kindness for awhile and then put her down.
Story link, with pictures, video--- not for the feint of heart.
‘SHE WAS A RACK OF BEATEN BONES’: ‘Puppy Doe,’ found abandoned in Quincy late last month, had been beaten, stabbed and burned, her tongue crudely cut to make it forked. The veterinarian who performed the necropsy called it ‘the worst case of animal abuse’ she’d ever seen.
She was owned by someone who adopted her out for free via Craigslist, I wasn't aware that apparently people use craiglist to get animals who are then used for fighting and their own sadistic purposes. So a petition has been started to ask craigslist to terminate the use of the site to give away unwanted pets.
I'm sure many people do find good homes, but and those who put them up for adoption are well intentioned, so flame me all you want, but sign if you would
