Another case of animal cruelty has emerged, this time in Lower Silesia, where two dogs were kept on chains, without kennels, and without access to food and water during the harsh winter. The Lower Silesian Inspectorate for Animal Protection intervened to save the dogs from the inhumane conditions in which they were kept. Unfortunately, the situation had already taken its toll on the dogs, both of which were malnourished, dehydrated, and in poor health.
Upon the inspection, the inspectorate found the dogs under a crumbling shed, their bodies thin, their ribs visible through their thick coats. The dogs had been left chained in the cold, and their condition was so severe that they required immediate attention from a veterinarian. The animals were immediately picked up and transported to the veterinary clinic for treatment.
The female dog, a German Shepherd, weighed less than 17 kg, and the second dog weighed only 20 kg. The dogs were in such poor health that it was possible to feel all their bones when stroking them. The owner of the animals did not even know when the dogs had last eaten or had access to water, proving how careless they were towards the animals.
The prosecutor’s office has been notified of the case, and the dog owners could face up to three years in prison and a fine of up to PLN 100,000. However, the most critical matter is the wellbeing of the dogs.
Betty and Lucky, the two dogs, have a long road to recovery ahead of them. The dogs need support for diagnostics, skin treatment, sterilization, and vaccinations, as their immune systems are weak due to their past living conditions.
Betty, the female German Shepherd, is emaciated and has an extensive skin disease. She requires extensive treatment to recover, and she needs a proper diet and nutrition to gain strength. Lucky, on the other hand, has a wound on his body that requires immediate attention, and he needs a healthy diet to gain weight.
Fortunately, Betty and Lucky have been saved, but the cost of their rehabilitation is high. The cost of their treatment, food, and further care will be more than the Lower Silesian Inspectorate for Animal Protection can afford. That’s why we’re calling on animal lovers everywhere to support the rescued dogs. Any contribution will be of great help and will go towards Betty and Lucky’s care.
We can’t turn a blind eye to animal cruelty. Betty and Lucky deserve a second chance at life, and we can make that happen. We need to come together as a community to support the rescue of animals that have been subjected to such inhumane conditions. Let’s show our support for these animals, and help them recover and regain their health. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these dogs and countless other animals in need.
