A dog was left to die in the bathroom of an abandoned house in Florida. While she was locked behind the closed door, she barked and cried for help, and ate the walls and insulation in a desperate attempt to stay alive.
Thankfully, she was discovered before she completely wasted away, but her time alone took its toll.
Today, the the emaciated dog, who suffered alone, is at the Lake City Humane Society in Lake City, Fla., where the rescue coordinator is desperately working to secure a rescue agency to take her in.
The rescue coordinator stated:
This girl was found locked inside the bathroom of a house. The owners abandoned the home with the dog locked in a room and no food, water or a way to escape. She tried to survive by eating the walls , insulation, etc.
The attached photos show the room this girl was in. There are photos upon her arrival at the shelter and some more recent where she has gained some weight. She is timid and scared but loving and really deserves a home where she will be cared for and loved!!
If you can help in any way...please contact me ASAP!!
As usual the shelter is full and more coming in every day!!!
As of Monday morning, a rescue agency had not yet been found.
The humane society is hoping to place this special dog with a 501(c)3 rescue agency which is equipped to offer her the veterinary care that she needs.
