SAVE BENNY ! ABANDONED TO DIE IN A REMOTE FARM WITH INCREDIBLE INJURIES !!!
His story is one of the most horrible cases of animal cruelty you have ever heard about. Imprisonment, hunger, mud, violence and loneliness: This was the only life he knew when volunteers found him…
He was found on an abandoned farm with multiple fractures; chained to a rusty pole in a pile of mud. All he had known was a life of neglect, imprisonment and being chained all day in deplorable conditions. He was denied love and starved of food all his life.
Benny, all soaked, muddy and unable to stand straight because of his bad leg, seemed heartbreakingly used to his conditions. Worst of all: nobody was going to come back for him, ever. Volunteers have been able to locate the owner of the farmland; who denied that Benny was his dog. He said he chained him and another dog on the site after finding him alongside a road; but then had left the farm.
In other words: Benny and his companion, who were chained at different parts of the farm, were doomed to live out the remaining of their days life in chains and starve to death!
We could not leave Benny to perish where the cold blooded murderer had abandoned him. In a leap of faith , we have brought him to our hospital where he could be assessed thoroughly.
His general state shows all the classic signs of long-term neglect and physical abuse: He is hugely undernourished, dehydrated and his skin has a severe case of manges. The x-rays have revealed that he has an old fracture in his right hind leg along with a shattered knee that locked his leg on vertical position. On top of the incredible neglect , Benny also has several old fractures on different parts of his body :
They seem uneven , some of them healed , then broken again, hinting that Benny likely received beatings during his years on the farm.
Benny needs immediate surgical intervention to fix his hind leg : he needs to undergo an atrodesis to save his knee and his front leg needs to be reconstructed to alleviate all the weight that has been pulling him down because he is not able to stand properly with all his fractures.
There is no time to wait , he has waited enough left alone and isolate with his injuries in that dark abandoned place without any hope of salvation. We need to proceed to the operation as soon as possible so his mobility and equilibrium can be saved.
