Texas: 2-month-old puppy rescued from abuse by good samaritans, lodged in animal shelter
The City of San Antonio Animal Care Services stated Suki's life might be "higher from right here on out."
A "frightfully shaking" two-month-old puppy was rescued by good samaritans after being abused by her owner. The puppy was imperiled to "harsh and merciless remedy" and was discovered after two people heard her yelping. She caught the attention of a San Antonio Police Officer, who further contacted the City of San Antonio Animal Care Service officers to rescue Suki from the abuse and provide her shelter.
Many people adopted animals during the lockdown, the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services stated. However, many pets were abandoned and subjected to abuse as people struggled financially during the pandemic. Suki, the rescued pup, was one of the victims of abuse and has been lodged in the no-kill shelter Animal Protection League of Texas after she was rescued. She might be put into adoption soon. City of San Antonio Animal Care Services wrote on Facebook, “Suki longed for love but instead was met with harsh and cruel treatment.”
When the Animal Care officers arrived, Suki was frightfully shaking in the passenger seat of the SAPD Officer's patrol vehicle. No more than two months old, she was lucky to have caught the attention of people around her.
Suki initially flinched at loud noises and fast gestures until she felt safe in someone's arms.
The City of San Antonio Animal Care Services said in their Facebook post, “While in our care, our administrative team members housed her in their office. They showered her with love until she could leave with one of our rescue partners. After just a few days of receiving love, compassion, and (probably too many) treats, she was no longer flinching when people tried to pet her. She even had a playmate to help ease her comfort from the chaotic situation she had been through.”
The rescue center wrote that Suki’s life is better now and thanked the good samaritans who did not shy their cameras away and began recording as soon as they noticed something was not right. Without their video evidence, it would not have been easy to file any charges against Suki's previous caretaker.
They also urged the public to report animal abuse by calling 3-1-1 or submitting video recordings or photos online at saacs.info/311.
