911 EMERGENCY FUNDS NEEDED NOW FOR CHAMP It is extremely difficult, as rescuers, to see a photo like this & to accurately convey the dog’s story through the very strong emotions of anger, hatred, despair, sadness & helplessness. We just became aware of Champ’s horrific story of cruelty this morning & immediately jumped in to help & try to save his life. As is obvious in this photo taken at the scene where he was seized last night, he is very near death & the end of the road but he is still alive..trying to hold on!
His condition speaks for itself. He was starved and left to die tied out in Laurens, SC. He was in hell with no way to escape. Thank god a passerby spotted him last night & contacted Animal Control. Champ was rushed to a local vet last night. He is weak, gums very pale & he was covered in maggots, even in his mouth. He needs testing & diagnostics which he will get today.
His heartbreaking story is that he is the victim of a breakup. The boyfriend apparently left him at the ex-girlfriends house and since he “was not her dog” she fed her dogs, but not Champ! How sickening is that?! And yes, charges have been filed.
Champ is only 16 months old & 50 pounds. The vet said this mastiff mix should weigh 110 pounds. We are so heartbroken for this poor dog, a victim of sick, sadistic, selfish, heartless & cruel humans. We hope karma will be swift!
We do not know if Champ can be saved or if we are in time, but we can promise you we will fight like hell for him to give this young majestic dog the life he deserves!
PLEASE DONATE & HELP US SAVE CHAMP!
