Philly Rescue Angels, a well-known organization committed to rescuing and nurturing neglected dogs, recently made headlines due to an unfortunate and heartless incident.
Late one night, a group of foundation employees in Pennsylvania stumbled upon a severely injured dog on a train. The poor creature, whom they named Lucky, was found immobile with a back leg that wouldn’t move. Initially, they assumed he had been hit by a train, but as they investigated further, they realized that his previous owners had ruthlessly injured him and left him behind to conceal their cruelty. It’s despicable that someone would harm an innocent animal and then try to cover it up by abandoning them on a train.
As a matter of fact, the investigators stumbled upon a leash and a collar that were both loosened at the location, leading them to suspect that the dog was deliberately harmed.
Lucky, who has suffered a severe spinal cord injury, is currently receiving medical attention at a veterinary facility. Despite the upcoming surgery, it will only serve to alleviate his pain as it is not feasible to fully restore his damaged spine.
It is uncertain if the puppy will pull through due to its serious infections, fractured teeth, and possible life-threatening spinal damage. Lucky’s medical procedures and rehabilitation are projected to cost anywhere from $15,000 to $35,000, but the team remains optimistic that donations will cover the expenses and that Lucky will triumph over his challenges. The collective effort to rescue him has been unwavering, and Son emphasized, “He battled for his survival, and we’ll do whatever it takes to support him.”
