News about animal cruelty is really not good to hear. It makes you think what kind of people are they fro doing nasty things to defenseless animals.
Alejandra Espinoza Zazueta received a call from her mom when she found a pup in a dumpster outside the jewelry store where her mom works. Her mom saw that her clients are looking at something inside the dumpster.
Zazueta’s mom guessed that her clients just threw something in the dumpster accidentally. That is why she was surprised when they pulled out a Walmart shopping bag from the dumpster.
And what is inside the bag was a wailing puppy that is with physical injuries. It was named Hope, for “the fighter that she is.”
When Zazueta arrived where her mom is, she saw that Hope has third-degree burns on her body that is from her waist down to her back legs. With this condition, Zazueta and her mom did not know if Hope will make it.
Zazueta then drove to the local vet, praying for the life of this tiny pup. Hope was given immediate medical attention, but the medical team knew it would need extensive around the clock treatment. Hope was transferred to Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation for this treatment.
Brian McGrath confirmed that Hope’s injuries were intentional. It can be caused by someone putting a heated object on its body or chemicals.
He is the owner of McGrath Veterinary Center and he stated “At this stage, she is prone to infection so she needs daily wound management as well as fluids antibiotics and pain medication. So far, she has been responding fantastically to treatment and after a long road, we expect a full recovery.”.
Hope is fighting for its life and is responding positively to treatments. However, it seems like Hope hind legs may be paralyzed since it cannot move them yet.
But this did not and won’t stop Zazueta on adopting Hope and taking it home. She is devoted to this and is more than willing to get a wheelchair for Hope.
On the other hand, the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation investigates the surveillance camera footage near the dumpster. They are also offering a reward of $10k for anyone who can surrender this culprit.
“It’s cruel, I honestly don’t understand how a person could do this to defenseless little puppies. I am mind-boggled and distraught and furious that this is what happened.”, Zazueta added.
According to Zazueta, all she wants right now is to make Hope feel loved and that it is safe with her now. She can also promise to Hope that this traumatic incident won’t ever happen again.
Below is a video update about the condition of Hope.
