According to Monday's publication of the Saint-Louis Dispatch, a young dog was discovered inside of a dumpster in St. Louis, Mo., on June 5.
The 10-month-old pit bull mix, dubbed "Little Kimmy," was rescued by the police after a good Samaritan heard whimpering coming from the garbage bin which was on the 4700 block of Hammett Place. Little Kimmy, who was underweight, has been taken in by Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
The rescue agency issued a release about Little Kimmy, stating:
It takes a disturbed and heartless person to discard a living, feeling being like a piece of trash. Tragically, this is exactly what happens far too often, and, most recently, it's what happened to Little Kimmy.
The rescue organization added:
Thankfully, she is alive and well here at Stray Rescue. Now, instead of being faced with the dark, rusty, and cold walls of a dumpster, this sweet girl is faced with a bright future full of comfort and love.
Stray Rescue of St. Louis is offering a reward for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) who left Little Kimmy to die in the dumpster. Anyone with information is asked to call the rescue's abuse hotline at 314-771-6121, ext. 255.
