Lancaster, CA – A scruffy little dog in California got his own personal miracle today – all in thanks to the efforts of rescue angels who worked to ease his suffering.
Somehow the little dog, now known as Benji, wound up at a high-kill animal control facility in Los Angeles.
He was like so many other dogs – homeless and in need – but unlike so many others, he was horribly injured.
Serious burn wounds cover Benji’s back – open wounds, obviously painful – obviously in need of immediate medical attention.
But Benji was not receiving comfort or care – he was locked in the kennel run – waiting and hoping.
Several concerned advocates made it their mission to free the little dog from his misery. Together, they banded together and made Benji’s freedom a reality this afternoon.
Benji went directly to a veterinary clinic where his multiple problems could be adequately addressed. It was there that his body revealed the full horror of his sad life.
Benji was suffering from the severe burns, as well as extremely matted fur and an infestation of foxtails.
Benji is a dog who has suffered too much – for too long.
But that is in the past.
Today, right now in this moment – Benji is a safe dog.
Right now, Benji is in good hands.
Right now, Benji is receiving love, compassion and care.
Benji showed his rescuer’s his deep gratitude with his constantly wagging tail and thankful kisses.
Anyone hoping to assist his rescuer’s with Benji’s veterinary expenses can do so by donating directly to his rescue, via PayPal, at [email protected] (please write Benji in the mom and send it as personal “gift” so that no charges are taken out).
Or, phone the vet clinic directly: Dr. Rupert, 661-942-1489. Please indicate that the funds are for Benji, through Hands, Paws, & Hearts.
Many thanks to everyone involved in pulling Benji from the animal shelter and getting him into the vet clinic. Special thanks to Vicki Hess and Lori Brooks, as well as Steve Spiro.
